If three of those names are all with Showtime, it would seem that we will see some top ***** fights soon at LHW. It looks like Pascal will be thrown into the Showtime mix as well.

So you live your entire life @ 175 just to see Stevenson vs Kovalev?

You will live long.

In any case, Kathy Duva can always find a way to move over to Showtime with her lone ranger.

There, she will be with civilization once more.

I'd like Kovalev to beat Stevenson if the fight ever happens. It's better for boxing if Kovalev wins. Stevenson is only 2-3 fights away from retirement. Even if Kovalev loses, he can still have a successful career. If Stevenson loses, he's pretty much done. He's 37, and I doubt he could make it back to the world level.

Kovalev vs. Stevenson won't be the fight some folks want you to think it would be. Kovalev would walk through him. Hopkins vs. Stevenson is up next, and Hopkins stands a pretty good chance of making Stevenson look clueless in there. It's a good fight. Better than Kovalev vs. Stevenson, which will still happen if Stevenson beats Hopkins.

Meanwhile, I would like to see Kovalev mow down Braehmer and Dawson.

It will probably be a few years until Kovalev gets a break again. At least he will be making some money so i would not feel that bad about it but it still makes me sad because he is 31 years old-

Kovalev vs Braehmer would be a nice fight.

Also Kovalev vs Froch @ c/w or 175 lbs would be interesting if Froch beats Groves.

I have a feeling they wouldn't fight him even if he went to showtime

Haymon signed up Dawson as well just recently - difficult to see why he wants a guy who is widely considered shot, but perhaps coincidentally, it's another guy Kovalev probably can't fight.

As of now the only big name opponent is probably Pascal, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him go with Haymon too - though how the hell they're gonna budget for all these guys is kinda beyond me.
