Saturday March 29, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Sergey Kovalev vs. Cedric Agnew. HBO Boxing After Dark Kovalev vs. Agnew airs live on HBO this Saturday, March 29, with a fight time of 10:00 p.m. ET / PT. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion, right here.
Kovalev vs. Agnew is one of those clear A side vs B side fights, with the spotlight firmly on Kovalev. The undefeated Kovalev is a very impressive 23-0-1. He's only gone the distance twice, never having fought past the 8th round. He had an amazing 2013, going 4-0, all KOs, none going past the 4th round. HBO has been building him up, but this is the first time he's the sole star attraction of the card. They clearly have a lot of faith in Kovalev, hoping that he can join the likes of Gennady Golovkin as one of the sport's next big stars. Opponent Agnew is also undefeated, but that's a bit misleading given his caliber of opposition - only 2 of his last 6 opponents have come into the fight with winning records. He really should not pose a threat to Kovalev here, and if he does, that doesn't speak well for the future of HBO's Kovalev project.

Opening the HBO card is Thomas Dulorme vs. Karim Mayfield. Dulorme is a Robert Garcia trainee with some good experience, while Mayfield holds a 2012 win over Mauricio Herrera, who just took Danny Garcia to the limit. These two match up well, and should make for a compelling fight.
