Kovalev vs Ward Press Conference – Thursday, November 17th sees the cavernous MGM Grand in Las Vegas hosting the final pre-fight press conference for Saturday’s HBO pay-per-view headlined by Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward.
The fight has been over a year in the making, with the final step being the completion of Ward’s August 6th feature fight against Alexander Brand. Before the final deal was concluded there was doubts as to the venue for the event and Ward did no-show the press conferences that formally announced the bout. The event venue was settled as the luxurious new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and both fighters have been all aboard for several months.
Ward and Kovalev did eventually meet at a press conference in New York City on September 6th where the two came face to face. “Krusher” Kovalev (30-0-1, 26 KOs) and “S.O.G.” Ward (30-0, 15 KOs) both talked to the media about their “Pound for Pound” match-up for Kovalev’s WBO, WBA and IBF world titles at 175 pounds.
