Adonis Stevenson has ducked him and Bernard Hopkins fights on a different network. Chad Dawson has signed with Al Haymon.
There are still some possibilities though: Pascal, Chilemba, Cloud, and Braehmer.
Would Pascal be willing to fight Sergey? Chilemba is an easy fight to make, but will HBO accept him as an opponent? Cloud would require negotiations with Don King, which often take too long.
I'd like to see him put a beating on Jurgen Braehmer, who is another piece of shit like Stevenson (Braehmer has had several convictions for beating up women). But HBO may want an American fight, and Braehmer may not want to (or be permitted to) fight in the USA.
Is there anyone else Kovalev could fight next?
