I do as well. Sillakh will have some success I think, until he gets hurt and then stopped.

I support Sillakh but a bit pessimistic about the result, Kovalev is obviously stronger. But we'll see, Sillakh is a clever fighter, definately a better one comparing with Cleverley. Looking forward for this fight

I think Sillakh will do well early but Kovalev will eventually catch him.

Sillakh doesnt have a good defence...he likes to dance around and use his movement to not get hit...but he doesnt keep his hands up...they are never above shoulder height...kovalev is too fast and accurate, likes to get off to a fast start...i predict ko/tko round 5 for kovalev

sillakh is quicker to the punch than kovalev, he has good power, he moves well, i don't think kovalev will consistently have success landing his punches.

underdog takes this fight.....ud sillakh.

Default Re: Kovalev-Sillakh.

I believe Sillakh is Kovalev's toughest opponent in the last few years, besides the first Boone fight when he was green.

Sillakh is fast and he can move. Outside of the KO loss, in a fight he was dominating up to that point, has shown that he can outbox almost anyone.

The only weakness I see in Sillakh is his chin. He's protecting a china chin. All Kovalev need to do is land one solid punch and he can put Sillakh on queer street. I'm favoring Kovalev 65/35 in his fight. His power and combination punch is Sillakh's biggest nightmare.

I like Kovalev in this one by KO.
Busy, accurate, power puncher vs Sillakh's chin...yeah.

This^. They are both very fluid combination punchers with real power and accuracy, both are very mobile for LHWs with Sillakh having the edge in speed, Kovalev in power. Particularly interesting is that there is a considerable similarity in their styles.

In fact H2H I'd favour Sillakh to beat most of the top 10 and is far the more dangerous of the two challengers on Saturday despite being ranked way below Bellew.

But...his chin.

As long as he can keep outta harms way he should be OK but with the kind of volume and accuracy that Kovalev throws I think Sillakhs gonna get caught at some point and if Kovalev can force him to stand and trade we could be in for a short fight.

Very dangerous fight for Kovalev IMO. Probably, as you say, his most dangerous opponent to date. I'd have to favour Kovalev right now for having the momentum and being proven at a higher level, but the upset would not be a massive surprise.
