Andre Ward, Sergey Kovalev each looks to leave no doubt in rematch

Andre Ward, Sergey Kovalev each looks to leave no doubt in rematch

American boxer Andre Ward kept his IBF (International Boxing Federation), WBA (World Boxing Association) and WBO (World Boxing Organisation) titles by stopping Russian brawler Sergey Kovalev in the eighth round of their light heavyweight rematch on Saturday.

Ward not letting Kovalev get the big shots off. Kovalev connects to the face.

The second go-round appeared destined for similar debate, as Kovalev took an early lead before Ward began asserting himself offensively while making a concerted effort to work to the naturally bigger man's body. Yes, we turned the caption on, to make this more noticeable, since many media are putting this behind, focusing just on Ward's victory.

"Whatever the excuses were this time, I just don't have the energy", Ward said. While still grimacing from the gut shot, Kovalev tried in vain to keep Ward away, but "SOG" drilled the former world champion with a murderous right to the jaw, a punch that would have flattened a lesser man. Kovalev (30-2, 25 KOs) stumbled around on rubbery legs as Ward gave chase. "That one's probably borderline - he was hurt, I went right back there again, he wasn't reacting, right back there again and the referee stopped it". "It takes something to do something". At a recent press conference that he abruptly walked out of, Kovalev pointed his finger at Ward and said, "I already said enough and I will prove it June 17".

Two blows near or below the belt line in the final seconds helped finish off Kovalev, who sat on the bottom ring rope as referee Tony Weeks called an end to the fight at 2:29 of the eighth round.

Shaped by attitudes more readily associated with those Russian supremacists attached to the nation's football team, Kovalev has run into a wall of righteous anger over his clumsy publicity moves that look like downright racism to western cultural sensibilities.

"I'm not going to be distracted by the talk". I went back to the body.

“Im not averse to getting hit, ” Ward said.

Sergey Kovalev: "He hit with four low blows". "I hope the whole world sees what it's like to get in the ring with me".

'I thought the stoppage was awful, ' said Malignaggi.

The Guardian also points out that when Murray was knighted a year ago , it was for services to both tennis and charity. Manchester City midfielder Raheem Sterling has also promised to give "a substantial sum".

"On Monday we will file a protest and ask the Commission to reconsider the replay Kovalev punches below the belt".

The payoff in dollars and praise should be commensurate with the risk, and as Ward's trainer Virgil Hunter clearly realizes, the ratio only makes sense north of cruiserweight. That's the kind of stuff that I've been dealing with since I've been a kid. "The first was Chad Dawson and the second was tonight". And they laughed at me. But I knew the temperament that I was fighting. "Now we have quieted all those who were whining and thought we didn't get it the first time". It's what Andre Ward had meant to do when the contract was signed for the light heavyweight title rematch with Sergey Kovalev, who many thought won their first fight last November.

Andre Ward defeated Sergey Kovalev in the rematch, completely without deserving. The blow left Kovalev bent over in agony which resulted in Weeks calling a halt to the fight.

We wish them well with their combat panto but let's not confuse it with a contest that taps into the best traditions of the fight game, a bout awash with animus, hubris and rage.
