Ward vs Kovalev: There is an expanding school of thought that Ward, the craftsman/technician, will be even better the second time around, having had 12 rounds and months of tape time to work out an even more intricate fight plan. I’m not sure I buy into that. Kovalev is no one-trick pony; he has skills to go along with superior power. If it’s a KO, he probably gets it, and it’s not out of the question that he can win on points as well. Let’s call it “Krusher” by 10th round stoppage.
Kovalev, who one could make a compelling case for having deserved a win against Ward, will get a chance to avenge the only loss of his career to this point.

If he gets another knockdown, look for him to apply even more pressure in the aftermath as he looks to end the fight early and avoid a repeat outcome, one that left him with a hollow feeling in the immediate aftermath of his lone defeat to this point, per ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael:

Andre Ward comes into the fight with superb undefeated record of 30-0 but his recent fights have been against opponents totally out of his league. He is riding on the reputations from that incredible couple of years during Super Six tournament where he defeated the likes of Card Froch, Arthur Abraham and Chad Dawson to become undisputed king of this division.
Kovalev on the other hand is no pushover and he will go into the fight as A side and a incredible undefeated 30 wins, 1 draw and 0 loss.
