Sergey Kovalev flashes his training in front of media people ahead of the Canelo Alvarez-Sergey Kovalev fight.

The 36 years old Russian started his training with a shadow boxing before throwing strong punches on the heavy bag.

Kovalev was all smiles as well while entertaining and posing some photos for the media.

It is only a week and three days before he put his light heavyweight belt on the line when he faces the Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

The fight is anticipated by fans across the world as Canelo jump from two weight division.

Alvarez is vying for his fourth weight belts; no Mexican boxer has yet to complete such feat.

Kovalev has gone down as the underdog despite reigning the light heavyweight division for years.
