HBO Demanding that Boxing Pro Remove Ammunition Company Logo from His Boxing Trunks

One of the biggest up-and-coming boxers in the world today is a power-punching Russian named Sergey Kovalev. He is such a powerhouse that most of his wins have been from knock outs. For years Kovalev, the Light Heavyweight World Champion, has been sponsored by a Texas-based ammunition company but now that Kovalev is getting fights on bigger venues, cable network HBO is demanding that the fighter remove the ammo company logo from his boxing trunks.

I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that HBO is so weak in the knees[1] over an ammunition company, but it is typical of limp-wristed liberals, isn’t it?

Light Heavyweight World Champion Sergey Kovalev defends his title against Nadjib Mohammedi live Saturday, July 25, on HBO. The Russian fighter has fought his way to the top with notable victories over former light heavyweight world champions Gabriel Campillo, Nathan Cleverly, Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal. Kovalev’s latest fight against Pascal pulled in 1.2 million viewers on HBO.

Now, as he prepares for his biggest fight to-date, and first in Las Vegas, his sponsors have told NSSF that HBO is demanding Kovalev remove the logo of Tulammo USA, a Round Rock, Texas-based ammo manufacturing company, from his boxing trunks. Kovalev has not made a public response, but his relationship with the company is a close one. The fighter appeared at Tulammo’s SHOT Show booth this past January.

The boxer has yet to reply to HBO’s lilly-livered demands.
