Adonis Stevenson has again called out Sergey Kovalev to prove who is the best light-heavyweight in the world but fears it will not happen.
The WBC world champion defends against former WBA holder, Badou Jack, live on Sky Sports, in Toronto, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
If they want it, you will see I am going to knock Kovalev out, too.
Stevenson will be boxing for the first time in 11 months when he meets Jack at the weekend.
It will be just his fifth fight in four years but although he admits Jack is likely to be his toughest opponent for a while, he says he will use it to send a message out to Kovalev, IBF holder Artur Beterbiev and WBA champion Dmitry Bivol.
Sergey Kovalev said he wants to fight all the champions in the light-heavyweight division Sergey Kovalev said he wants to fight all the champions in the light-heavyweight division
“I am not under-estimating him (Jack) but the difference is, I know the game at light-heavyweight, so I know what I am going to do,” he said.
“The big difference is I am the best light-heavyweight, I am the king of the light-heavyweight. You can tell him. Before I was the king, I beat the king to become the king.”
Watch Adonis Stevenson’s WBC title defence against Badou Jack in Toronto on Sunday May 19, from 2.30am, live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action.
