No Holds Barred: Sergey Kovalev, Jean Pascal, Roy Jones, Steve Cunningham

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman previews the light heavyweight title fight between WBA/IBF/WBO champion Sergey Kovalev (26-0-1, 23 KOs) and former WBC champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KOs). The co-feature will have veteran Steve Cunningham (28-6, 13 KOs) facing unbeaten prospect Vyacheslav Glazkov (19-0-1, 12 KOs) in an IBF heavyweight title eliminator.

This card takes place Saturday, March 14, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It will be shown live in the U.S. on HBO and in Canada on pay-per-view.

We spoke with Sergey Kovalev, Jean Pascal, and Steve Cunningham at a news conference in New York January 14, as well as Roy Jones Jr., who is Pascal's assistant trainer. We also have a comment from Kovalev's trainer, John David Jackson, from a February 24 media conference call.

In addition, we comment on the disgraceful lack of any drug-testing for the Kovalev-Pascal fight.
