Sergey Kovalev taking rematch clause.

In the last week it became clear that Sergey Kovalev wants to take advantage of the clause in his contract for rematch with Eleider Alvarez.

The two were boxing on August 4th in Atlantic City, New Jersey and the meeting ended in favor of Eleider Alvarez, who knocked out Sergey Kovalev in the 7th round of the match.

Kovalev has a personal record of 32 wins - 3 losses - 1 draw, with 28 of his victories by KO.

Alvarez has a personal record of 24 victories - 0 losses, with 12 of his victories ending by KO.

After his last victory, Alvarez became the holder of the WBO boxing title.

Kovalev will definitely take advantage of the rematch clause, but HBO continues to be not committed, said the Sergey Kovalev's promoter to ESPN, he added that even if HBO would refuse the 2nd match, the match will happen and it will be negotiated independently whether it will be broadcast on HBO or anywhere else.
