Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev on June 17th
They meet in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The Son Of God & the Krusher will fight again and this is great for fans to see the best-versus-best fight.
This keeps the momentum going and we already see some young talent coming up.
In their 1st fight which was 7 months back, Ward recovered from the 1st knockdown of his career to grab Krusher Kovalev’s unified WBA, IBF & WBO light-heavyweight titles by a close & controversial decision.
The verdict was 114-113 on the cards of all 3 judges.
It was disputed strongly by the Kovalev camp, although the Russian himself admitted that he was not his usual destructive fighter on the night.
Then and now
Ward is on the last stage of his distinguished career in which he dominated the super-middleweight division for many years and could have refused the risk of losing it.
Post agreement for Kovalev’s challenge a 2nd time, Ward is helps to rebuild boxing’s image that has further been enhanced by James DeGale’s heroic draw with Badou Jack.
Also Carl Frampton’s elite rematch with Leo Santa Cruz & special mention Anthony Joshua’s impressive victory over Wladimir Klitschko in front of a 90,000 Wembley Stadium fans.
Coming to this match
Even though Ward regrouped post his shaky start to impose his brilliant boxing intellect on the 2nd half of the 1st fight, Kovalev is yet 1 of the most hazardous knockout merchants in the prize ring.
He says that he’s improved and we get his best here. You will get to see real Krusher this Saturday & this is one of the most important fights in my career.
He is the technician who has often topped the ring. He says he will not streach the match and will knock him down.
Kovalev has 26 K.Os from 30 victories.
He now has to stop the clever & elusive Ward that can be a tiring task.
Ward has proved time and again that he can endure Kovalev’s best shots and that makes him dangerous. On the contrary, Kovalev has no doubt saying that Ward cannot hurt him too badly& that should liberate him to throw more of those sledgehammer blows.
Ward with experience will be more comfortable. Yet we expect thrilling action & spills along the way & the potential for an upset anytime.
