Sergey Kovalev and Andre ward

Russian boxer Sergey Kovalev insists he does not want the punishment to the judge.

Former world champion light heavyweight Russian boxer Sergey Kovalev filed a formal protest to the Athletic Commission of Nevada to change the result of the fight is a rematch with American Andre ward.

The LVRJ reporters got hold of the text of the protest, which, in particular, contains the following lines: “it is Very important that the Commission understands the protest is not an attempt to challenge the competence of the referee, no more than video replays in football or baseball leagues questioning the competence of judges.

This is just an opportunity to seek the truth where could be a mistake. The referee of the fight Mr. weeks is included in our list of highly competent judges, and nothing here should not be understood as doubt in its competence”.

Due to wrong interpretation of the rules ward was hitting below the belt every time got into trouble. We sent the video, which shows a large number of such strikes,” the statement reads.

Recall the second fight Kovalev and ward was held on June 17 in Las Vegas (USA) and ended with the victory of the American by TKO in the eighth round.
