WBA interim light heavyweight champion Alexander Gvozdyk (15-0, 12 KOs) explained why he decided to prepare with Teddy Atlas for a fight against Adonis Stevenson (29-1-1, 24 KOs). “This was my decision, and Egis Klimas, my manager, gave me the opportunity to do it. Atlas is an experienced coach who is attentive to small details, I think this is what I need. Now I have a preliminary task, before the start of the training camp, and when Teddy arrives. Then we will already put emphasis,” said Gvozdyk.

WBO Light Heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev shared his forecast for the Stevenson - Gvozdyk fight and told why he did not want to box against the Ukrainian. “After the battle of Adonis against Badou Jack, it became clear that Stevenson is already a past. Badou was to defeat Stevenson. Why he did not do it - it's not clear. But the chances of Alexander Gvozdyk in a fight with Stevenson are quite real. Alexander knows how to box at a high technical level, showing a high-speed boxing with heavy blows. I'm sure that Gvozdyk will dominate the fight and win the world title,” said Kovalev.
