“Krusher” Sergey Kovalev ends 2013 with another impressive KO victory

30-year-old Russian WBO light heavyweight champion, Sergey Kovalev made easy work of contender Ismayl Sillakh, of Ukraine, at the Colisee de Quebec, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada on Saturday night.

The first round was a close affair, with Sillakh moving and using the jab while Kovalev looked to close the distance and landed some orthodox jabs to the stomach.

Thirty-seconds into the second round and Kovalev’s power came into play; a right-left combo dropping Sillakh, who beat the count. Referee Marlon Wright, let the fight proceed and Kovalev promptly and powerfully ended the fight with a right-left-left.

This was the first defence, of the title he ripped from Nathan Cleverly, and another sensational punching display. Sillakh like so many other opponents – simply couldn’t cope with the incredible power of the Russian.

in 2013 Gabriel Campillo,  Cornelius White, Nathan Cleverly and now Ismayl Sillakh, all folded to the power of Kovalev – and it is going to take something extraordinary to stand-up to it. 

HBO aired the fight, in the US, and are pushing for a clash with fellow champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson. Fans everywhere would tune-in for the fireworks but I feel we might see both men make another defence first.

Kovalev remains unbeaten at 23-0, 21 KOs while Sillakh drops to 21-2, 17 KOs.
