FORMER light-heavyweight world champion, Sergey Kovalev will fight Vyacheslav Shabranskyy on November 25 at the Madison Square Garden Theatre in New York for the now vacant WBO title.

Kovalev is ready to rebuild after losing to Andre Ward in June. He has switched trainers from John David Jackson to Arbor Tursunpulatov.

“My training camp is going really good, like always, and I’m happy to work right now with my new coach Arbor Tursunpulatov. He’s doing a great job and we understand each other because we speak and understand one language. We understand each other and I feel comfortable,” Kovalev said.

“I’m ready to be again a world champion and collect my belts if somebody will be ready to unify the title.

“I want to be the best. And I already have proved a lot of things to myself and to a lot of people, to the boxing fans, that I can be the best. But the three last fights, it was something is wrong with me. Next fight and next year I will show everything, who I am,” he added.

“I’m working on it.”
