I hear alot of KO talk relative to Hopkins... Kovalev landing something to KO him.. now anyone can be KOd but some people seem to forget that despite Hopkins being a master boxer-- he also has a tremendous chin. That along with his tight D makes KOING Nard very hard... Pascal snuck Hopkins with quick explosive shots early.. Kovalev does not have that explosive quickness... = no ko of Nard

I agree with this, plus let's not forget that Sergey isn't crafty either so he won't offer anything in the form of feints or traps to make BHop overcommit or miss wildly so that he'd be able to be countered. I see Kovalev as a basic puncher who comes forward, he has very little head movement, sets no traps nor does he feint, he simply walks forward off his backfoot loading up with powershots, that kind of stuff won't work against Hopkins........................just ask Pavlik.
