Heavyweight Greg Corbin (16-0, 10 KOs) patiently walked down Homero Fonseca (14-9-3, 4 KOs) landing an occasional jab and right hand before Fonseca determined he had enough in the main event at the River Ranch Texas Horse Park in Dallas, Texas.

Alvarez Kovalev Sumio17
Yvon Michel, promoter of newly crowned World Boxing Organization (WBO) light heavyweight champion Eleider “Storm” Alvarez confirmed during the postfight press conference that former champion Sergey Kovalev has a rematch clause and there are also mandatories to deal with.

Kovalev’s promoter Kathy Duva confirmed there is a rematch clause, but said it’s too early to say when or if the return fight would take place.

In Russian media, Kovalev’s trainer Abror Tursunpulatov has recommended that Kovalev retire. Kovalev stated it’s probably time to hang up the gloves, “but this is boxing so anything can happen. I will not make hasty decisions, time will pass, and I’ll decide what to do next.”

Kovalev didn’t attend the press conference, but posted a message on Instagram from the back of an ambulance. “I am on my way to the hospital to check my head, check my body … I feel OK. Thank you everyone, thank you very much to all the fans around the world for your support. I love you, and I’m fine.”
