If Kovalev wins, he could fight Canelo Alvarez next
They glared at each other, smiled, and tomorrow they fight.
WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev weighed in at 174 pounds today, while challenger Anthony Yarde tipped the scales at 173.
The fight will go down at the Traktor Arena, in Chelyabinsk, Russia - giving Kovalev, born in Russia, the home "ring" advantage. Hopefully the judges scoring will be fair.
The fight will air live on ESPN + at 12:30 p.m. ET.
