On Saturday, February 2nd at The Star in Frisco, Texas, WBO light heavyweight champion Eleider Alvarez (24-0, 12 KOs) defends his title for the first time against Sergey Kovalev (32-3-1, 28 KOs), the very man he took the belt from last August.

A Canadian by way of Colombia, Alvarez had long earned a title shot but never actually managed one until last year, and he was still a heavy underdog against the Russian power puncher. Despite being down on the scorecards at the halfway mark, Alvarez dropped Kovalev three times in round seven for the upset victory. Kovalev is now the challenger, and he has a very serious assault charge hanging over his head entering this matchup. The odds have this as a near pick’em, with Alvarez as the slight favorite. He may not have a prolific KO record, but he’s shown he can pack a punch in recent outings, and it’ll be fascinating to see how this one unfolds.

The other title fights on this card are a WBO featherweight title defense for Oscar Valdez (24-0, 19 KOs) against Carmine Tommasone (19-0, 5 KOs), while Richard Commey (27-2, 24 KOs) and Isa Chaniev (13-1, 6 KOs) are vying for the vacant IBF lightweight title, with the winner promised a shot against Vasyl Lomachenko in April. Lest we forget the rise of lightweight prospect Teofimo Lopez (11-0, 9 KOs), who is in the co-main event against former title challenger Diego Magdaleno (31-2, 13 KOs). You’ll want to watch him.
