Pound For Pound: Sergey Kovalev vs. Andre Ward I
Undefeated Andre Ward moves up to 175 pounds to take on undefeated WBA, IBF and WBO Light Heavyweight Champion Sergey Kovalev in a fight between top pound for pound fighters. Kovalev shows his power early, stunning Ward with a jab in the opening round and knocking him onto all fours with a right hand in the second. Ward slowly battles back into the fight after the midway point, landing the more telling blows as Kovalev slows down. He stuns Kovalev with a pair of jabs in the seventh and wins just enough rounds to edge a close, controversial unanimous decision on the scorecards.
