Ward vs Dawson 2012 – HBO Boxing is entering “fight week” for their November 19th pay-per-view featuring the light heavyweight showdown between Sergey Kovalev and Andre Ward. Check your local listings for start times.
The Sergey Kovalev versus Andre Ward fight goes down at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and the fight sees Kovalev officially defending his WBA, WBO and IBF world titles at 175 pounds against the challenge of the undefeated Ward.
HBO Boxing has put a great deal of effort and resources into making this fight happen. The fight has been contracted officially for over a year, as Andre Ward signed his three fight deal with the cable giant back in October of 2015. Ward entered the contract knowing that he would face Kovalev in the final match of the contract, and HBO afforded both men two fights in 2016 prior to the November 19th date.
In September of 2012 then WBA and WBC 168 pound champion Andre Ward successfully defended his titles against Chad Dawson, who was then 31-1 and was a former world champion at 175 pounds. Ward stopped Dawson in the tenth round, and HBO is making the full fight available as we build up to Saturday’s fight. Check it out now.
