Get the details here on boxing’s big PPV rematch – Andre Ward vs. Sergey Kovalev II this weekend on HBO PPV.
This Saturday, June 17, HBO is back on PPV for a big boxing rematch as Andre Ward (31-0; 15 KO) once again takes on Sergey Kovalev (30-1-1; 26 KO) for Light Heavyweight supremacy.
Ward and Kovalev first squared off last November. That fight was a razor-close affair that saw Ward emerge as the winner by decision. But it was not without controversy as most observers felt Kovalev deserved the win. Given the close outcome, a rematch only makes sense. These two have estabslihed themselves as the clear #1 and #2 in the division (sorry Adonis Stevenson fans). Not only will the winner here be #1, he will also have a real case for being the pound for pound king of boxing, especially if either man can earn the kind of definitive win we did not see last time out. In a sport where we often lament the way top fighters avoid other top fighters, this is the kind of fight we should see. Let’s hope it draws some more fans to PPV for the rematch.
The Ward vs. Kovalev rematches headlines a four fight PPV card. The biggest name on the undercard is technical master Guillermo Rigondeaux – one of the best but also least appreciated fighters in all of boxing.
Join us live this Saturday, June 17 for live fight night coverage of HBO Championship Boxing Ward vs. Kovalev II on PPV.
