“It is a good thing then, that in a sport that paid men nine figures to land less than ten punches a round, there are fighters like Sergey Kovalev, who broke Nadjib Mohammedi at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, on Saturday night, stopping the hapless fighter in three rounds. In an era that sips “shampaign” while blathering on about brands and business (non)sense, an era that will be remembered for the LIE of TBE, the apotheosis of self-preservation on the bloodiest, most dramatic proving ground in sports, at least there is Kovalev and those of his ilk: men who do their worst in an effort to be best.”
