Sergey Kovalev and Igor Mikhalkin Hit The Scales – Saturday, March 3rd at Madison Square Garden, the Mecca of Boxing, there’s light heavyweight action for fans of The Sweet Science. Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (31-2-1, 27 KOs) fights southpaw Igor Mikhalkin (21-1-0, 9 KOs) for the WBO light heavyweight title.
Both fighters come from Russia and they know each other a little as a result of having competed on the national team together as young amateurs, but they are very different fighters as professionals.
In the co-main event WBA world light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol (12-0-0, 10 KOs) defends his title against Cuba’s streaking Sullivan Barrera (21-1-0, 14 KOs).
