I saw that and thought "who the hell wants to see this matchup?"
I'm just excited about the Kovalev vs. Ward fight, and I think whoever wins can claim top 3 p4p status. They're both top 10 right now, IMO.
I think that Ward is the favorite as well, but I think that we'll see 2 things early in the match:
1) Can Ward keep Kovalev honest enough that Kovalev will keep his hands at home a bit more? If he can decrease Kovalev's output, he gives himself a considerably statistical advantage of not getting caught?
2) Can Ward get inside and rough up Kovalev and get him flustered?
If he can, I could see him even finishing the very aggressive Kovalev. If not, we'll see.
Just read this, and my reaction is "WTF?" He would be an incredibly undersized heavyweight. So yes, that heavyweight division is hardly in a golden era, but still, Andre Ward is a much smaller fighter and has fought at much lower weight catagories than say, Evander Holyweight, who just had to move up one weight class from cruiser weight.
I guess that we'll see.
Yup. He'll just get worn down, and probably get KO'd, regardless of his skill. I can't see how Andre Ward could get out of a fight with Klitschko, for example.
