Virgil hunter, trainer of world champion in the light heavyweight division by the WBA, WBO and IBF Andre ward, believes that the Russian Sergey Kovalev have problems with excessive alcohol consumption.
“You can’t drink the whole year long and expect that you will not be affected. If I could get inside and find it all out, I would bet that it is because of this he is now tired. The point is not the extra training. Just can’t drink vodka for a year and expect to cope with someone like Andre” – quoted by Virgil hunter boxingscene.com
