has hopkins faced a guy like kovalev before? he seems a lot more calculating and subtle in his approach. he wasn't very hittable for cleverly either.
Yes, in Kelly Pavlik. I didn't see anything special in Sergey, he doesn't come in at angles, his defense is limited and he isn't exactly fast either. Why even bother mentioning Cleverly, he wasn't very cleverly in the ring.
Hopkins would pick this dude apart and use his fancy footwork and defense to make dude look ordinary/BHop is too cleverly for Kovalev.
