Previous Fight

Finally, the long awaited rematch between Andre Ward (31-0, 15 KO) and Sergey Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KO) is about to happen. This Sunday morning after you get back from partying be sure not to miss probably one of the biggest boxing events in 2017.

We saw a lot of interesting things linked to this match, and without any doubt, it will be one fantastic spectacle.

These two guys are the most skilled boxers in the light heavyweight category. It is something that guarantees some fierce fighting.

The Russian boxer lost all of his titles in the previous encounter, and he wants to regain three championship belts in Sunday’s clash. The WBA, IBF, and WBO.

Only a few people predicted such an outcome back in November of 2016. Especially, after Kovalev have sent Ward down on the floor in the second round.
But the stubborn American got up and dominated the last six rounds displaying excellent technique. Finally, he won this one with a unanimous decision by the judges.

Controversy 

Now comes the exciting part. After the match, the Russian accused that this was a political win and that he didn’t deserve to lose. The judges have awarded a victory to Ward simply because Kovalev is Russian. That is how he explained the defeat.

The most recent blockbusting news regarding this rematch game in the form of a betrayal.
Allegedly, John David Jackson who is Kovalev’s trainer wanted to join Andre Ward’s team.
A situation like this one is something highly unusual among the boxers. Especially at this level and in this situation, and we have to mention that it was rarely seen before in history. After all, Ward decided not to co-operate with Jackson.
That was all allegedly. But who knows what happened.

Prediction

Regarding this fight, in our belief, Andre Ward is a favourite. He has more experience regarding Kovalev’s style after the first match. This time isn’t going to allow to reach the situation similar to the second round of the previous event. The Russian boxer will be searching for just one small chance to finish the whole contest and Ward knows that. One quick punch and the current champion could lose his belts.
Kovalev is a boxer who tends to finish his job pretty quickly, and you can see this from the total career rounds ratio. However, Ward is an entirely different type of fighter. He prefers his fight to be long and often wins the decision of the judges. The American has 230 rounds in 31 fights, while the Russian boxer has 126 in 32 matches.

This fact means that as the fight goes on, Ward’s chances are increasing. If he manages to survive first 6 rounds, we think that he will routinely bring the fight to an end, and defend the title.

I would give 0 if I could went downhill . Being loyal customer just realized how bad service is . Cheating on games nearly pays out anything . Even bets sometimes sneaky way u want to bet this amount and other amount pop out as I placed 4 bets same time apparently ( untrue obviously ) technical issues on settling bet still customer lose on that. Complaint taking ages and never replied . New customers watch out on sneaky tricks. Hopefully uk gambling commission will find something as I'm fed up . I don't mind to lose fairly .
