Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev will meet for a second time later tonight, June 17, inside of the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
Ward (31-0, 15 KO’s) and Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KO’s) will vie for the IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight belts that the Oakland native captured from the Russian this past November. There is a lot on the line for both men and there is definitely some tension in the air, as evidenced from all the banter and verbal exchanges during this week in Vegas.
Check below for a closer look at some exclusive Fight Week photos, including some of the undercard attractions, and stay tuned for post-fight updates.
