Hopefully, this is leading up to Bivol and Kovalev meeting down the road. As long both men keep up their winning ways, there’s no reason why the young warrior will not meet the proven lion.

Chilemba is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Blake Caparello. He has been in the ring with Sergey Kovalev and Oleksandr Gvozdyk. You may recall Chilemba went the distance with Kovalev in Russia where he loss a unanimous decision, he also proved to be awkward and had a good showing for himself in the bout. He will have the experience on his side but that’s about it.
