Hey buddy, I saw this fight almost just like you did, I thought Andre Ward boxed beautifully, and battled through adversity to win, in what was an utterly fantastic, performance, I feel Kovavlev got off to a great start, and was in a competitive fight throughout pretty much the whole fight, he really impressed me too, it must have been tough for him to lose his belts in such a tough fight, but for me, the right man won the fight. I think the rematch is a great idea, after a very close first fight between two undefeated boxing greats, what is there to say in favour of the rematch not happening?, but, I think Cathy Duva (the reason I single her out is because she is someone with control, and her doing her job well or not so well could depend on a lot, like all promoters in this sport, which is also a business as I seem to find out more often all the time) needs to appreciate that Ward, he's the A-side, he's the champion, Kovalev didn't have what had to be a win taken away from him, he wasn't the first champion to officially lose a subjective decision which could have gone either way, and I'm sure he won't be the last, Andre Ward has every right not to have people try to bully him into a rematch, and if and when he takes the fight is completely up to him. I must confess, I am extremely disappointed in HBO, and I think they are an absolute joke, in an ideal world, the rematch would be on Showtime. Who do you think would win the rematch?

Hey buddy, sorry it took me so long to respond to this. I'm now a music director of a music school. I still watch the fights and make my videos when I can, but I neglect other areas in my life as a result, obviously. lol. Anyway, I love this fight. If you ignore the presupposed power advantage of Kovalev, Ward outboxed him for sure. As far as this rematch goes, holy shit. Pardon my language, but I am so excited. I feel like boxing has just been so great forever, and it just keeps continuing. My friend, I could see Ward pulling ring IQ to continue his methods on Sergey. However, I could also see Kovalev pulling a completely different approach and being extremely aggressive to try to pressure Andre into a very new fight. I believe Kovalev is one of the hardest punchers in boxing. Much like GGG, who we talked about in the other thread, but skill trumps one asset every time. I gotta go with Ward and GGG in the rematches. What do you think, pal? It's good to talk to you again. I hope you're doing well.

No worries. Cool!

I agree, it was the ultimate mega fight, I', just disappointment that this supposed knowledge around the world amongst fans and media members who don't know what they are talking about, Ward clearly won that fight, 3-0 down after 2, and then he dug deep, and won 7-8 of the last 10 rounds, what a comeback, he deserves all the credit in the world, yet, we have idiots on YouTube who try to use his facial expressions as evidnece of his defeat, and morons Merchant and Lederman saying Kovalev won 116-111, and he clearly won, the idiots did the same thing to Floyd Mayweather against Castillo.

I can't wait for the rematch, I definitely think Ward is going to win again, I think he might even manage the stoppage against Kovalev, that isn't my final prediction, but I wouldn't put it past him. I think Kovalev, is a very good fighter, fantastic boxer, extremely concussive puncher, but I think he isn't in that group of special fighters, fighters like Leonard, Ward, Ali, Mayweather, in the same way Pacquiao, Cotto, Mercer, Holyfield aren't, I think Ward is more adaptable, will adjust, will retreat, and will beat Kovalev again.

So yes I think Ward and GGG in rematches. I think Danny Jacobs is so underrated though, after a second watch, I personally agree with the judges, but the fight was close enough to be subjective as to who legitimately won, there was no decisive winner, and Jacobs won a minimum of 5 rounds.

Yeah man great to talk to you too.

What state are you in the by the way?, I'm going to guess, Florida?
