The moment is once again here for Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev. The two men faced off on Friday afternoon, inside of the Mandalay Bay Events Center, in Las Vegas, Nev., at their official weigh-in ahead of tonight’s rematch.
Ward (31-0, 15 KO’s) will defend his IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight titles against Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KO’s) inside of the Mandalay Bay on HBO pay per view. Ward claimed the belts this past November, when he edged Kovalev via three 114-113 scorecards to claim victory after rising from a second round knockdown.
Their is definitely tension in the air, as evidenced as each man stared the other down following their respective weigh-ins.
