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.

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.

On Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 15, lineal light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev and former super middleweight champion Andre Ward made their grand arrivals to the city of Las Vegas ahead of their showdown this Saturday night from the T-Mobile Arena.

Set for a clash on HBO pay per view, Kovalev (30-0-1, 26 KO’s) and Ward (30-0, 15 KO’s) will face off for a battle that will likely determine who is the sport’s number-one fighter.

One of the most anticipated fights in the sport to be made is the Sergey Kovalev vs. Andre Ward matchup, which looks to be on tap for later this year, possibly in Las Vegas.

Trainer Abel Sanchez gave me his thoughts on the bout recently, and is leaning towards Kovalev, possibly via late stoppage.

To anyone who follows the sport of boxing somewhat closely, you can surely spot the tension coming from both sides regarding a possible fight between WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and WBA super middleweight king Andre Ward.

There has been curiosity surrounding the potential matchup for a few years now but Ward insists that the Kazakhstan star and his team, specifically trainer Abel Sanchez and promoter Tom Loeffler, are feeding the public lies about their interest in a showdown.

As the weekend came to a close out in Las Vegas, the boxing world also took notice of a new heavyweight champion of the world in Deontay Wilder, who snatched the WBC crown from Bermane Stiverne with a 12-round unanimous decision from the MGM Grand.

With Wilder’s victory now behind us, boxing looks forward to both his future as a champion as well as what other high-profile matches may be good for the sport.

Rodriguez is confident coming in the fight but failed to make weight on his first attempt, hitting the scale at 170 pounds. No word on whether Rodriguez is going to make a genuine attempt at shedding off the extra two pounds.
