Kovalev and Pascal bet 50K on fight

Undefeated light heavyweight king Sergey Kovalev and his January 30th opponent Jean Pascal have added more to the stakes of their upcoming rematch. Sergey Kovalev had predicted that he was going to finish Pascal earlier this time than he did in the first fight when he knocked out Pascal in round 8. Pascal asked Kovalev to put his money where his mouth was, and Kovalev answered that he would.

The bet is $50,000 that Sergey Kovalev will knockout Jean Pascal before the 8th round. If Kovalev can take out Pascal before then he will win the 50K. If Pascal makes it past the 8th round then it's him that will walk away with the cash. The fight is scheduled for January 30th live on HBO.
