ESPN2 News Fight Picks Analysis: Gotta like the tough Ukranian Vyacheslav Shabranskyy, 30, to go the distance. Kovalev is a huge puncher but he doesn’t go to the body like a Julio Cesar Chavez. Shabranksyy is a tall (6’1″) shifty, awkward stand-up boxer that likes to be defensive and counterpunch. The 5’11” Kovalev was unable to get rid of a similar styled fighter in Issac Chilemba and ESPN2 News ranks Shabranksyy as a better class fighter than Chilemba. Quietly it should also be noted that Kovalev is 34-years old and could be a touch past his prime. Bet the once beaten and stopped Shabranskyy at the fat +450 price to go the distance with ESPN2 News pound-4-pound #10 ranked Kovalev. Kovalev vs Shabranskyy Fight Odds Total is at 7.5 Rounds with the Over at +220
