Campillo-Kovalev Will Get It On At Mohegan Sun Jan 19th

NBC Sports Network’s popular “Fight Night” TV boxing series starts 2013 off with a bang on January 19th when Sergey Kovalev, 19-0-1, 17 KOs, takes on Gabriel Campillo, 21-4-1, 8 KOs, in an international 10-round light heavyweight main event. The nationally televised fight will be held at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT.  The NBC Sports Network telecast will begin at 9PM ET.

Kovalev, the 175-pound punching machine from Chelyabinsk, Russia, aptly nicknamed “Krusher”, always brings the power when he steps into the ring. Only three of his opponents have gone the distance during his three year career. His last start was a typical Kovalev affair, a three round blowout of Lionell Thompson in Bethlehem, PA. He will look to make similar short work of Campillo in January.

Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev

Campillo is Spanish southpaw from Madrid who once reigned as the WBA 175-pound world champion. In his last fight, he boxed circles around undefeated IBF champ Tavoris Cloud, but lost a highly controversial split decision. Campillo, known as the “Handsome Man” is a beautiful boxer looking to get back to another world title bout. Kovalev is standing in his way.

This caliber of competition has become the benchmark for the NBC Sports Network “Fight Night” series. “Fight Night” matchmaker, J Russell Peltz said, “This is a classic boxer-puncher fight between world-class fighters. On paper it doesn’t get any better than this, in person it could be even better.”
