Sergey Kovalev vs Gabriel Campillo – 19th January

Location – Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut, USA

Some of you may remember Kovalek from a tragic night for boxing in December 2011 when he unfortunately killed fellow countryman Roman Simakov, a very unfortunate incident and Kovalev questioned his future in Boxing but after 7 months out decided he would carry on.

He is up against a really decent boxer in Campillo who gave Tavoris Cloud a real boxing lesson in his last outing and was unlucky not to win that bout losing by split decision.

However Kovalek is one powerful and strong presence in the ring and I don’t see Campillo managing to avoid Kovalek’s heavy hitters for 10 rounds, I see Kovalek walking him down and getting Camplillo hurt and when Kovalek has his opponent hurt he is usually able to finish.

You can get odds of 13/8 for a Kovalek KO/TKO and I think its just about worth a play.

ATR’s Bet – £80 on Kovalek by KO/TKO 13/8 Sky Bet
