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.

It was a successful night on Saturday for Shane Mosley Jr. as the son of the living legend scored a victory in his official debut competing under BKB (Big Knockout Boxing) inside of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.

The 24-year old Mosley, 4-1 as a professional boxer and 1-0 now while competing under BKB, was simple too strong and powerful for his opponent Jason Kelly. Mosley struck fast, registering a knockdown following  a left to the body, and later ended the bout with a flury against his hapless foe.

Mosley, 4-1 as a boxer and now 1-0 in the BKB pit, was simply too sharp, strong, and powerful for Kelly from the outset, as he registered a knockdown off of a left hook and then again from a follow up combination, as the second left Kelly on the deck for good.
