On Tuesday afternoon, IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight champion Andre Ward and former lineal champion Sergey Kovalev arrived in Las Vegas ahead of their rematch this weekend. Ward (31-0, 15 KO’s) will meet Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KO’s) inside of the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Saturday, June 17, on HBO pay per view.

This past November, Ward lifted himself off the canvas following a second-round knockdown and proceeded to close the show strong, winning a majority-decision over Kovalev by way of three 114-113 scorecards. The rematch seems to be lacking some buzz in Las Vegas, but that doesn’t stop the fact that this is one of the most important fights to be made in the sport of boxing.

Check below for Kovalev and Ward’s official grand arrivals and stay tuned for more Fight Week updates.
