Kovalev vs Shabranskyy Press Conference Highlights – Kathy Duva hosted a media event in NYC on Sept 22nd to announce the upcoming Sergey Kovalev vs Vyacheslav Shabranskyy match-up.
The hard-hitting light heavyweight encounter is set as the main event of Duva’s card at the Madison Square Garden Theater on November 25th. Kovalev (30-2-1) is coming off back to back losses on HBO PPV to Andre Ward and this fight sees Kovalev return to HBO as he attempts to snap the first losing streak of his career. Shabranskyy is looking for a big name to fill out his resume, and has gone 2-0 thus far in 2017, bouncing back from a December of 2016 loss to Sullivan Barrera. The former champion Kovalev is just the type of big name Shabranskyy is looking for.
Duva and her Main Events promotional company released a video of the press conference and we have edited it down to the highlights here at TBC.
