The Colombian boxer said that he is motivated in anticipation of fight with Kovalev.

Colombian boxer in the light heavyweight Eleider Alvarez (23-0, 11 KO’s) said that to defeat the Russian Sergey Kovalev (32-2-1, 28 KO’s) will be difficult, but he will do everything possible to get the title.

“The motivation is higher. Finally, I will fight against a top fighter. And Kovalev is the leader of the division. I have long been trying to contest the title, to show the world your class. And finally I had the chance.

It will be damn difficult, but I will do anything to win. It’s like a dream come true. Motivate me new challenges. The tougher the opponent, the better I look in the ring. Again, Kovalev is very good! Jeb, technique, excellent and powerful blows. But my coach knows how to win. And I don’t doubt that I would become the next world champion”, – quotes the Colombian BoxingScene.

Recall that Alvarez will step into the ring against Kovalev on August 4 in Atlantic city, (USA). At stake will be the WBO belt owned by the Russian boxer.

Note that initially, the Colombian had to fight with the Ukrainian Alexander Stud (14-0, 12 KO’s), but refused to fight.
