    Ignoramuses.

    :lol:

    Sergey telling it how it is. 3 weeks of rest before getting back into camp against the roided ginger as well as a crippling rehydration clause.

    It was a cash grab. And to me, quite the confirmation that Sergey took a dive.

    Yeah, the source is Kovalev himself talking about it. A video from his Instagram.

    Can we get confirmation that “ignoramouses” is a legit valid translation for his words? Because if so it goes down as an ATG boxer’s statement. It’s up their with “parliamentary procedure”.

    Kovalev said, "laymen in the sport of boxing". I guess "ignoramuses" means the same.

    Kovalev in a roundabout sort of way, all but confirming, it was a cash grab and more probably a dive too. He's probably taking a lot of criticism from his fellow countrymen about fighting timid and then getting knocked out by someone much smaller than him and it is now starting to get to him.

    Hey though, he had $12m worth of reasons to do what he did.....

    Kovalev just confirmed he was cashing out and was not able to train properly.
    He is a fool. Should have just taken the money and retired.

    Still can't believe most people actually think that fight was real, its quite sickening to the core that people don't see the wwe- and now we have Clenelo beating guys like Kessler and Froch in fantasy fights, unreal! lol

    "...
    Taking into account all the conditions which were forced on me … it was impossible to win that fight. Impossible to be in the shape which would allow me to beat this little wild-boar (Canelo). So, all those who believed, who bet money on me in order to get rich – greed got the best of you. And I can say it safely that you’re laymen/ignoramuses in this sport. … I was struggling to lose weight! It took me a lot of pain and sleepless nights (to make 175). … But financially I just couldn’t refuse the offer… Canelo, or rather his team, calculated it perfectly – in fact, I had two training camps for Yarde, my body was at its limits. … I’m surprised I was able to last till 11th round. After the 7th I was running on fumes. … And I made a mistake, I blame myself for it now. At first I was putting my weight on my backfoot, and Canelo was unable to hit me. Initially almost all his punches missed or barely scratched me. But when I raised my hands to my head, he caught me with a left hook. And then with the right hand… It was a dumb mistake. But it was their plan – that I would get tired and start making mistakes.

    That's a good excuse for a fixed fight I must say.
