Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev go head to head on Sky Sports on Sunday morning
Everything you need to know about the blockbuster rematch as two of the pound-for-pound best once again go toe-to-toe, live on Sky Sports.
It is finally time for the rematch billed ‘no excuses’ where Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev will once again battle to stake their claim for pound-for-pound greatness.
Sergey Kovalev is the stronger man at light-heavyweight and I just think he will take the rematch on points, unless he manages to deliver that knockout blow earlier.
Sergey Kovalev has already shown that he’s strong enough to put Ward down. Kovalev will come for the knockout, but he’ll have to settle for an emphatic points win.
When the rematch was first announced I thought it was 60-40 in Andre Ward’s favour. But now it’s 51-49 in Ward’s favour. Ward wins on points, but I’m not saying that with confidence.
