Cleverly vs Kovalev – The Writers’ Predictions

A red mist is descending on the Welsh capital, and for once there will be no “Welcome in the hillsides”, as Main Events and hard-hitting Russian Sergey Kovalev attempt to prise away the WBO light-heavyweight title from current holder Nathan Cleverly at the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff this Saturday, 17th August.

The forgotten boxing World: Asian Boxing

One of the biggest issues with boxing fans today is that they don’t tend to be aware of the busy Asian scene.
