"I don't follow anybody," Kovalev said. "I see that [Stevenson] has something that I want. I want the WBC title. I want the WBA title. I want the IBF title. I'm ready to fight any champion. I have one title. I want to add one more title this year. It's not very good if everybody wants to see our fights but politics won't let it happen. For me, it's not good. We will try to get a good fight this year after this fight."
