Saturday night, Washington Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov drove up to Atlantic City to watch the WBO light heavyweight champion of the world, Sergey “The Krusher” Kovalev, box Blake Caparello. Kovalev hails from Chelyabinsk, Russia, Kuznetsov’s hometown, and won via a vicious TKO in round two.

While there, Kuznetsov managed to snag a photo with Roy Jones Jr. who was doing (apparently terrible) commentary for the match.
These are pretty good seats.
Meanwhile, please listen to this video of Kuznetsov cheering and laugh. It’s amazing.
Here’s Kuznetsov with the champ after the match.
