John David Jackson And Virgil Hunter Debate – Great fighters are often backed by great trainers, and that is the case this Saturday, November 19th when WBA/WBO/IBF world light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (30-0-1) defends his title against the challenge of Andre Ward (30-0).
John David Jackson is the trainer of Sergey Kovalev, while Virgil Hunter is in the corner of Andre Ward. The two are among the most active top level coaches in the world today and both are perennially in the running for “Trainer of the Year” awards.
The two men lent their presence to HBO’s pre-fight build-up, taking part in Wednesday’s media round-tables. To this point, both Ward and Kovalev have been leaving the media spotlight to the undercard fighters, but the pair are expected to come face to face at the weigh-ins on Friday, November 18th. The coaches will be there with their charges, but they also agreed to a little “verbal sparring” session on Wednesday.
