Sergey Kovalev Looks To Defend WBO Light Heavyweight Title Against Cedric Agnew




The bright lights will be shining on both Sergey Kovalev and Cedric Agnew this week as the two fighters are set to square off for the WBO Light Heavyweight title on this week's HBO Boxing After Dark main event.

Sergey Kovalev will enter this fight with a near-pristine record of 23-0-1 - his only "blemish" was a draw against Grover Young, and this draw was the result of an accidental foul. Since that fight, Kovalev has been on an absolute tear, finishing off every single one of his opponents via knockout. Kovalev has made one successful defense of the WBO Light Heavyweight title, and that was a second round destruction of Ismayl Sillah in November of 2013.

Cedric Agnew, on the other hand, enters this fight with a perfect 23-0-0 record, with 13 of his fights ending via knockout. Agnew's competition has been less than stellar, however, as some of his recent opponents have included fighters with records of 13-14-2 and 21-39-2. It's safe to say that Agnew will be stepping up considerably in terms of his competition when he gets into the ring with Sergey Kovalev on March 29th.

--

Will Agnew be able to deal with Kovalev's explosive power? How will either fighter deal with the bright lights of HBO? Some fighters thrive under the pressure of fighting in front of a national audience, while others fighters fold.

The odds for Kovalev/Agnew haven't been released as of yet, but you can expect that Kovalev will open as the heavy favorite.
