- Updated: July 31, 2014
The final press conference for the light heavyweight title fight between Sergey Kovalev (24-0-1, 22 KOs) and Blake Caparello (19-0-1, 6 KOs) took place earlier today in Atlantic City.
The two will meet on Saturday night from the Revel Casino Hotel in AC, which will be televised by HBO beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.
“I prepare the same for each fight. I am not a talker, I am a fighter. I want to get in the ring Saturday and win my next fight,” said Kovalev.
Added Kovalev’s trainer John David Jackson, “Whether it goes 1 or 12 Sergey will do what he always does and that’s destroy.”
Kovalev is coming off of a knockout win over Cedric Agnew in March, while Caparello, Australia, earned a win over Elvir Muriqi in January.
“I am coming to America to beat Sergey. He is a good fighter but I am looking forward to Saturday night,” said Caparello.
