Bloody Elbow has your live fight night results and discussion for Andre Ward vs. Sergey Kovalev II live on PPV.
Tonight is a rematch of one of boxing’s biggest fights of 2016, as Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev once again do battle. The two men first met in November, with Ward taking a highly contentious unanimous decision win – now they have an immediate rematch to determine who truly is the better fighter. One added point of interest for this fight – not only is this for Light Heavyweight supremacy, but it very well may determine the best boxer in the sport. Ring Magazine now ranks Ward as the #1 pound for pound fighter on the planet, Kovalev as #2. It will be hard to deny the winner here a sport as #1, especially if he wins it with the kind of definitive victory we did not see in November.
The undercard is not particularly stacked for this one. Highlight is Guillermo Rigondeaux, a top 10 pound for pound talent whose style does not mesh with many fans. Clearly, this is a card for the hardcore fan, not the casual.
Ward vs. Kovalev II airs live on HBO PPV today Saturday, June 17 with a fight time of 9:00 p.m. ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT. For more on the card follow our colleagues at Bad Left Hook.
