Kovalev vs Ward Undercard Round Tables – This Saturday, November 19th sees the long awaited light heavyweight showdown between Sergey Kovalev and Andre Ward for the WBA, WBO and IBF world titles.
This is the first time being the main event on American PPV for both men, and the pair have been working towards this fight for over a year. The cable company has put an unprecedented amount of time and patience to make this “superfight” happen, even allowing both men two other fights in 2016 as a means of “tuning up.”
Now that fight week is here and the boxing world is focusing on Las Vegas, you can look for HBO to pull out all the stops for the live event. Wednesday sees the undercard front and center promoting the event, while Thursday sees Kovalev and Ward meet in the final press conference. The weigh-ins are planned for Friday afternoon and you can check right back here at The Boxing Channel for complete coverage.
