Sergey Kovalev stops Jean Pascal in Montreal

In the much-anticipated main event of the evening, Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (27-0-1, 24 KOs)* and Jean Pascal (29-3-1, 17 KOs) pleased fans with an action-packed battle. Both fighters started by trading some good shots, but Kovalev started to throw some nasty combinations in the third round to take the wind out of the hostile crowd at the Centre Bell in Montreal. Just before the end of the third round, Kovalev knocked Pascal through the ropes but Pascal was saved by the bell. Sergey came out swinging in the fourth to try to capitalize on the near KO, but Pascal managed to stay on his feet and land a huge right to show Kovalev he was still in the fight. As the bell rang to end the fourth round, both men were still trading big shots.

Isaac Chilemba’s Journey From One-Room Shack in Malawi to HBO

As Isaac “Golden Boy” Chilemba prepares to face Vasily “The Professor” Lepikhin in a ten-round fight for the NABF Light Heavyweight Championship on Saturday, March 14 live on HBO World Championship Boxing®, he cannot help but reflect back on all that he has been through to get himself to this moment.

The 27-year old Chilemba grew up poor in the world’s poorest country, Malawi. He lived with his mother, brother and sister in a one-room shack. According to Chilemba, “Growing up in Malawi was very hard. I grew up with a single mother and she worked in a shop. I had to quit my education because my mother couldn’t afford it. I lived in one room with my mother, my brother and my sister. There was no bedroom. We were sitting on the floor. My mother would sleep on one side of the floor and my brother, my sister and I would sleep on the other side on the floor. Sometimes we would not have any blankets so we would put our clothes on top just to keep ourselves warm. The other corner is where the plates and the pots would be. We would cook right there in a little square room. That was how life was in Malawi.”
