Saturday November 30, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Adonis Stevenson vs. Tony Bellew and Sergey Kovalev vs. Ismayl Sillakh, live on HBO. HBO Boxing After Dark Stevenson vs Bellew airs live this Saturday, November 30 with a fight time of 10:15 p.m. ET / PT. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion, right here.
This double-header is one of those cards clearly designed to set things up for down the road. In the main event, Adonis Stevenson takes center stage to face Tony Bellew. Stevenson is arguably the break-out fighter of 2013, going 3-0 with 3 stoppages, including his huge KO of Chad Dawson. He is coming off a good win over Tavoris Cloud where Stevenson looked like a major star. In the co-headline fight, Sergey Kovalev takes on Ismayl Sillakh. Kovalev is another big story of 2013: 3-0, 3 stoppages in a combined 10 rounds. Kovalev's last fight was a surprisingly one-sided 4th round KO of Nathan Cleverly.

Obviously, the money fight at Light Heavyweight right now is the one that comes next - Stevenson vs. Kovalev. That should be an incredible battle of hard-hitting sluggers, and if all goes according to plan this weekend, expect to see that fight in 2014. Of course, this is boxing, so everything according to plan is far from a guarantee, as Bellew and Sillakh try to rain on everyone's parade and spoil the party. Both challengers really have their work cut out for them though.
Saturday's broadcast will begin with a replay of Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios for those of you who missed that PPV fight last weekend.
