Sergey Kovalev lashes out, calls Adonis Stevenson a ‘piece of sh*t’ after Agnew victory

On Saturday night in Atlantic City, WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev improved his record to 24-0-1 with 22 knockouts after stopping Chicago’s Cedric Agnew in the seventh round of a spirited yet one-sided affair on HBO’s airwaves.

When asked about a possible matchup with WBC champion Adonis Stevenson, who recently signed with Al Haymon and looks to likely now be tied to Showtime, Kovalev lashed out.

“I don’t want to speak about Adonis Stevenson,” the Russian said. “Adonis Stevenson is a piece of sh*t.”
