38-year-old Cuban boxer Sullivan Barrera is hoping that his fight against Sergey Kovalev will take place, despite the pandemic coronavirus and addiction of the Russians to alcohol.
“I’m completely focused on the fight with Kovalev. After the surgery, I feel reborn as a fighter. I want to prove it to the world by giving a great fight with Kovalev. I know that the victory will lead me to a title fight against one of the Champions at light heavyweight.
I continue to train and stay in shape. Waiting for my Manager to call and say that the fight relevant again. Until we hear any news. What’s the problem? I just hope that Kovalev has not returned to vodka. We all know that it makes alcohol. I hope this is not a reason why our fight has not received a new date.
I really want this fight. I put everything on the line. Even helped Sergey to gain extra 5 pounds, and he will not have to work too hard. Kovalev, what’s the problem now?” said Barrera.
