Sergey Kovalev vs. Andre Ward gave boxing what it needed

I don’t care who you think won the fight. If you, the reader, comment on this post expressing agreement or displeasure with the fight, you will have swung and missed the point of this post by a wide margin.

Andre Ward narrowly defeats Sergey Kovalev in a corker

We’re going to debate the scorecards in Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev for a long time, a bout Saturday night in which Ward barely won according to all three judges but not according to most fans watching. What we won’t debate is that we got a hugely compelling battle, one with momentum shifts, a knockdown and tactical excellence — high-level boxing at nearly its best. Because...

Andre Ward, Sergey Kovalev ‘of course’ want rematch

Andre Ward was awarded a unanimous decision victory over Sergey Kovalev in a controversial decision from the judges scoring the fight between the two at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Though Kovalev scored a knockdown early and looked to be dominating the fight especially in the early rounds, all three judges scored the fight 114-113. That means they gave seven rounds...

Nine reasons you can't miss Sergey Kovalev vs. Andre Ward

Eighteen months ago, we were promised a battle of biblical proportions. A clash of champions. A tussle between two titans. All alliterations aside, what Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao was ultimately hyped to be never materialized, and outside of boxing's die-hards and their love for the sweet science, many soured on whether the sport could deliver on the biggest stage. Sergey...

Andre Ward clinches victory but not imagination

On Saturday night, for the 29th time in his professional career, Andre Ward took home a victory. Boxing fans got their first look at Ward as a light heavyweight, and while they saw him pitch a near shutout against a hungry undefeated Sullivan Barrera, the luster that usually follows Ward just wasn’t there. Even though Ward was facing a heavy underdog, boxing fans were excited...

Andre Ward Vs Sullivan Barrera Results: Ward Wins, Not Quite Up To His Usual Standard

As “performance by any boxer in the world” goes, Andre Ward was brilliant Saturday night on HBO in his official move up to light heavyweight against Sullivan Barrera. As a performance by Ward — and in particular, a performance by Ward that convinced anyone of his chances against Sergey Kovalev in a fight that sounded perfect on paper — it wasn’t up to snuff. Ward won almost...

What's next for Andre Ward?

By Juan Martinez The biggest question for Andre “SOG” (Son of God) Ward heading into his fight on June 20 against Paul “Real Gone Kid” Smith from England was whether or not he would have any ring rust. However, Ward silenced critics and ended his 18-month layoff from the ring in style by defeating Smith by way of a technical knockout at the 1:46 mark in the ninth round...

Andre Ward Looks Like He Never Left Against Paul Smith

If Andre Ward could’ve done anything to make anyone glad he was back after nearly two years in the ring, it would’ve looked an awful lot like Saturday night on BET. Ward beat up an overweight Paul Smith, stopping him in the 9th round after turning him into a bloody mess. It’s a big “if,” of course. Ward’s extended absence and a fighting style that doesn’t enthuse some...
