Lotierzo Breaks Down Ward v Kovalev 2 – Last night in Las Vegas HBO pay-per-view delivered the highly anticipated second meeting between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev.
The first fight this past November saw Ward take a unanimous decision by the narrowest of margins as all three judges awarded him the fight by scores of 114-113. On Saturday the rematch started out much the same way as the closely contested bout saw Kovalev come out with an increased punch count while Ward relied on his superior technical boxing. Entering the middle rounds it was clear that Kovalev was tiring and Ward recognized that the work to Kovalev’s body throughout the fight was beginning to pay off. Ward was doing damage with body punches along the ropes when referee Tony Weeks stepped in and stopped the bout to prevent Kovalev from taking any more punishment.
