The awaited rematch of current WBO light heavyweight champion Eleider Alvarez and Sergey Kovalev will happen in February 2019 in Dallas, Texas. Alvarez earned the belt when he finished off Kovalev in the 7th round after 3 knockdowns. It was a sorry loss for Kovalev who was leading in all scorecards when that lucky streak gave Alvarez the TKO win. Alvarez remains unbeaten with 24 wins and 12 KOs while Kovalev has 32-3-1 fight record.
