Tonight, in Las Vegas, we could witness one of the fights of the year.

In one corner will be Sergey Kovalev and in the other will be Andre Ward.

At stake will be the IBF, WBA and WBO light-heavyweight titles currently held by Kovalev.

Ward, a former holder of the super-middleweight title will be looking to cement his belief that he is the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.

Kovalev is a fearsome puncher whilst Ward is considered to be one of the most skilful boxers around, it really is a decent match-up that could go either way.

However Ward believes he can end this contest early, commenting ahead of the bout,

‘If Kovalev makes any mistakes I will make him pay. He can be dropped and he can be knocked out,.

‘We will see who is the puncher. There have been many times when the guy who had the jackhammer did not turn out to be the puncher.’


Confident words indeed.

As for Kovalev, he?s also looking to make an impact and retorted,

‘I want to destroy him.

‘It’s not about who is stronger, but who is smarter, brings the best skills into the ring and is mentally stronger. If I happen to knock him out it will be a bonus for boxing fans and myself.’


Pick a winner folks and see if you guess right!
