Default Kovalev vs. Shumenov.

How does this one go? Shumenov is slow and hittable, but he can punch as well, and we don't know how well Kovalev can take a punch.

Shumi is a strong LHW, but he is too stationary and slow, Kova would pick him apart badly

Kovalev is a hardhitter in pro ranks
Beterbiev was the hardhitter in the amateurs
Now they are proffesionals in the LH division.
