Pound for Pound: Sergy "Krusher" Kovalev vs. Andre "S.O.G" Ward. Unified Light Heavyweight World Championship.
The world championship card is presented by Main Events, Roc Nation Sports, Krusher Promotions and Andre Ward Promotions.
Kovalev (30-0-1, 26 KOs) is the IBF, WBA and WBO 175-pound champion while Ward (30-0, 15 KOs) is a former two-time world champion.
Kovalev and Ward currently are ranked as the No. 2 and No. 4 pound-for-pound boxers in the world, respectively, by The Ring Magazine, making their fight only the third bout in the history of The Ring pound-for-pound list which pits two undefeated, Top-Five pound-for-pound fighters against each other.
Making the fight even more intriguing, Kovalev and Ward are polar opposites. Kovalev, The Russian Wrecking Ball from Chelyabinsk, is a hard-hitting, heavy-handed knockout artist, while Ward’s slick, defensive style has been an unsolvable riddle for every foe he’s faced. Although ferocious in the ring with his seemingly unstoppable offense-first approach, Kovalev is charismatic outside of it, and on his way to becoming the sport’s next big star.
Ward, from Oakland, Calif., and the last American man to win an Olympic gold medal in boxing (2004 Athens Games), is already a future Hall of Famer as well. Known for his strong character and integrity outside the ring and his warrior’s instinct inside it, Ward has not lost a fight, amateur or professional, since he was 13 years old.
Kovalev, 33, has been dominating boxing’s light heavyweight division with his aggressive, fan-friendly style since his breakout performance against then-unbeaten Nathan Cleverly during 2013. Kovalev’s rise to boxing stardom has been meteoric, as he has gone from an unknown fighter from Russia to headlining HBO Pay-Per-View in just four years after signing with his first promoter, Main Events. Out of Kovalev’s 30 career victories, 26 have come by knockout. Additionally, he has entered into championship rounds only twice in his professional career. Kovalev always has sought to test himself against the best boxing has to offer.
Ward, 32, reigned as he WBA super middleweight champion from 2009 to 2015 while fighting mostly out of his hometown, Oakland. He announced his intention to move to up to the light heavyweight division in search of a bigger challenge last year, shortly after signing with his current promoter, Roc Nation Sports. He has been a top-rated pound-for-pound fighter since 2011.
