This match up will be the biggest fight by far of both men’s careers and one that the sport of boxing much needed in 2016, after various big fights fell out and were not made for one reason or another.
The end of the year is looking much brighter however and this fight will be a catalyst for some great action ahead in the sweet science over the coming months.
Coming into the bout Ward’s record reads 30-0 (15KO) and his last fight was back in August when he recorded a unanimous points decision victory over Alexander Brand.
Kovalev 30-0-1 (26KO) and his last outing in the ring came back in July after a hard fought unanimous points win over the tricky Issac Chilemba.
On November 19th someone’s ‘O’ has got to go, as they say. Both primed elite level boxers will finally find out who indeed is the best pound for pound fighter in the world today.
