Ward vs Kovalev 2 Odds Review – The first fight between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev went down in November of 2016 and the controversial result saw Ward win a narrow unanimous decision when all three of the judges returned scored of 114-113. The win gave Ward the WBA, WBO and IBF world titles and moved his career record to 30-0 while Kovalev experienced the first loss of his career
Work on a rematch between the two top 175 pounders in the world started before both men left the ring in November and the official rematch was announced without a great deal of public bickering. Do not let the business-like atmosphere fool you, the two men have developed a dislike for each other as their rivalry has developed. The first fight was a chess match between two of the top fighters in the game but after twelve rounds it is safe to say that very little has been decided between the two men. Ward enters the fight a slight betting favorite.
