The Kovalev-Pascal showdown will be televised on HBO and we will see how Pascal’s athletic, often unorthodox attack can stack up against one of boxing’s brightest stars at the moment.

Kovalev (26-0, 23 KO’s) is coming off of dominant victory over Bernard Hopkins this past November that elevated his career to a new high.

Pascal (29-2, 17 KO’s), meanwhile, fought twice in 2014, winning a wide decision over Lucian Bute in January and setting for a disappointing ‘No Contest’ vs. Roberrto Bolonti in December.
