Sergey Kovalev vs. Cedric Agnew: Preview, Prediction for Light Heavyweight Bout

This Saturday night, Russian wrecking machine Sergey Kovalev returns to action on HBO's Boxing After Dark, to defend his WBO light heavyweight belt against undefeated contender Cedric Agnew.

Kovalev ended last year one of the hottest fighters in the sport. He went 4-0 in 2013 with all four of his fights ending by stoppage inside of four rounds. He captured his first world title along the way. 

Kovalev is one of the emerging Eastern European fighters whom HBO is looking to build its boxing programming around in the wake of losing Golden Boy to rival Showtime. He's got the kind of offensive tools that can make a fighter a must-see phenomenon.

On Saturday, Kovalev will look to keep his momentum going against a hungry, undefeated challenger.
