Kovalev vs Hopkins 2014 – November 19th will see the eyes of the boxing world firmly focused on Las Vegas, Nevada as HBO Boxing returns with their last pay-per-view offering of the year, Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward.
There is no doubt that this is a huge fight and some are calling it the last big fight of 2016. The respected Transnational Boxing Rankings Board ranks Kovalev and Ward as the #1 and #2 ranked 175 pounders in the world today, with WBC titleholder Adonis Stevenson earning the distinction of “lineal” champ. The winner of Kovalev vs Ward could be in line for a fight with Stevenson next.
In November of 2014 Sergey Kovalev defeated legendary Bernard Hopkins in a fight that propelled the bruising Kovalev to the top of the rankings at light heavywight. Kovalev sent Hopkins to the canvas in the opening round and he went on to win a wide unanimous decision where he won every round on every judge’s scorecard. HBO is making the full fight available as we build up to Saturday’s fight. Check it out now.
