“Thanks to Kovalev for his outstanding career, but we have to think about putting an end to it” – Evgeniy Tishchenko

Olympic boxing champion Yevgeny Tishchenko told that the former Russian world champion Sergei Kovalev It’s time to end my professional career.

Kovalev lost to Swede Robin Safar by unanimous decision on Saturday in Saudi Arabia. For the 41-year-old Russian, this fight was the first after a two-year break.

— Kovalev fought well. It’s clear he tried and prepared. But he is far from being in the best condition, and his opponent was far from being at his best. Kovalev would be better off ending his career. By the end of the fight I was very tired and exhausted. To put it bluntly, he was knocked out with fatigue. Given a good and hungry outlook, this could end very badly.

Kovalev invented his own story. In my opinion, he is one of the most notable boxers in Russian history. Thanks to Seryoga for his outstanding career, but he needs to think about ending it, Tishchenko told .

Kovalev has 35 victories and five defeats in the professional ring. Previously, the Russian held the WBA, IBF and WBO light heavyweight championship belts. For undefeated Safar, the victory over Kovalev was the 17th of his career.
