Sergey Kovalev Bio
Sergey Kovalev was born on April 2, 1983 in Kopeysk, Russia . His first visit to the boxing gym was at the age of 11 when one of his childhood friends invited him to join a boxing club near school. Sergey quickly discovered his potential driven by strong work ethic and crushing power.
In 1997, Kovalev debuted at the Russian National Championship immediately taking gold medal in the middleweight juniors division. Sergey’s power and decisiveness in the ring earned him spots in the finals of many tournaments as an amateur boxer.
He really is ferocious. When you throw a punch at him, he’s coming back with two punches. That’s what made it hard for Bernard Hopkins when they fought. Kovalev throws all his punches with murderous intentions, and that’s intimidating in itself … Mike Tyson
