It’s a quiet weekend for the Minnesota boxing scene following last Saturday’s show in Carlton, MN.
However, local fight fans and the rest of the world awaits one of the most anticipated match ups in boxing as two of the best, Sergey Kovalev (30-0-1, 26 KO’s) and Andre Ward (30-0, 15 KO’s) battle this Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada. Up for grabs in this pay per view clash will be Kovalev’s WBA, WBO, and IBF Light Heavyweight titles.
“Very good fight. Best fight of boxing today” said Light Heavyweight legend Roy Jones Jr. on Fightnews.com. “I look forward to seeing it. To me it’s one of the best fights we had in boxing in years as far as guys being in their prime, being the two best in the division. That is just a great fight. A great fight for boxing.”
The odds makers are nearly split on who they think will be victorious when Kovalev and Ward finally do meet. Who do you think wins this classic between Kovalev the puncher and Ward the boxer? Find out this Saturday night.
