Number 2. Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev, 29-0-1 (KO 26) – Light Heavyweight
He’s a super knockout artist who demolished most of his opponents in less than five rounds and only two survive till the final bell. He is your seek-and-destroy type of guy. And if you are the one in front of him, you can run, but you can’t hide inside. He’ll lock you in like a guided missile locking its target and on hot pursuit.
In November 2014, Kovalev scored the biggest win in his career so far. He won a wide unanimous decision victory against the great Bernard Hopkins.
It was a great accomplishment for Kovalev, whose boxing skills were underrated and thought to rely solely on his power. But he out-boxed Hopkins who’s regarded as the one of the best and smart boxer in the sport today despite an advance age.
