Alvarez-Kovalev rematch set for February 2

9 diciembre 2018 09:37

Eleider Alvarez's first defence of his WBO light-heavyweight title will be a rematch against Sergey Kovalev in Texas on February 2. 

Despite trailing after six rounds, Alvarez (24-0) sent Kovalev (32-3-1) to the canvas three times to claim a seventh-round knockout and take the 35-year-old's strap in Atlantic City in August. 

The fight will take place at Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, Texas – the Dallas Cowboys' practice facility. 

''The fact that Kovalev said it was a mistake and that I was lucky is motivation for me," said Alvarez in a press release. "He is a sore loser, and I will make sure there will be a second 'accident'. 

"I expect Kovalev to be stronger in that second fight. I expect the best Kovalev because he won't underestimate me this time, but I am fully aware of this. I am able to be even better than in the last fight." 

Kovalev will be seeking to become a three-time world champion. 

"I will look to take back my title and put on a great show for the fans. Together with my new trainer, Buddy McGirt, I will be ready for Alvarez," he said.
