Ward vs Kovalev 2 Is Here This Saturday – This Saturday, June 17th sees HBO pay-per-view deliver the second meeting between light heavyweight top guns Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev.
The first fight between the two men went down this past November and though Andre Ward won the fight by the narrowest of margins, little was settled between the two men. Ward brigs the WBA, WBO and IBF world titles at 175 pounds to the table for his first title defenses in the light heavyweight class. Kovalev was the champion and the #1 fighter in the weight class until last November and the 34 year old is looking to regain the belts Ward took from him.
