Kovalev vs Melikuziev is transferred to the United States
Bektemir Melikuziev's fight on January 30 on DAZN against former three-time light heavyweight champion Sergei Kovalev is changing its location, and now, instead of Moscow, it will be held in the USA, at the Fantasy Springs Casino arena in Indio, California.
It was originally planned that Melikuziev vs Kovalev will take place at the Luzhniki arena in Moscow, and will become Kovalev's second fight in his homeland. According to BoxingScene.com, the change of location for the fight took place for security reasons, which allowed both boxers' camps to remain in the United States, where they already train regularly. At the same time, the fight will begin at such a time to get into prime time in Russia.
