How can I stream Andre Ward v Sergey Kovalev online? Ward won gold in the light heavyweight division at the 2004 Olympics and turned pro later that year.
When he cant get you out of there he fades, Ward said. At the end of the day, listen I think Ward was hurting Kovalev to the body. "It takes something to do something".
The American caught Kovalev with a big right hand and followed it with a series of shots to the body.
Kovalev (30-2-1, 26 KOs) was badly hurt, and Ward went to him and began firing away.
CompuBox figures confirmed that the 12-round bout may have been hard to call, with Kovalev connecting on just 10 more punches than Ward, 126-116. Referee Tony Weeks stepped in to stop the fight at the 2:29 mark of round eight. They laughed at me, but I knew what would happen because Andre was healthy. Those happy to keep it simple can have 8/11 on the jolly to put this rivalry to bed once and for all by going 2-0, regardless of how it's achieved.
"Tactically, I obviously want to have a better start and I'm going to have a better start. Then the referee stopped the fight".
The second verse, as usual, was louder than the first. And they laughed at me. I'm not going to be distracted by the ploys.
What Kovalev, of Russian Federation, needs to do is figure out how to get through Ward's defense, period. Ward said that will play in his favor in the rematch. The challenger, Kovalev is a man from another time as well as another place. I give him credit. You can listen to his podcast, "Fight Club Chicago" .More news: Mickelson withdraws from US Open

The Oakland native has also said that this is a "statement" fight in which he hopes to remove any doubt about the outcome. "A lot of people talk about his jab and the right hand", Ward said. "I thought I was doing very good". I wanted to continue fighting. "I didn't feel like I was getting knocked down by the power of his punches".
He said he thought Ward was hitting him below the belt but that he was OK. But that's OK because me and my team, we've learned how to deal with the pressure. There are two boxers, one Afrikan, one European, and two camps in which there is no love lost. "The fight should have continued". He promised he would have more stamina this time, but he seemed just as gassed at the same juncture, maybe because Ward was holding religiously, exchanging in the clinches, and raising the tempo to devastating effect. "Am I No. 1 [in pound-for-pound rankings] now?" Flores is scheduled to fight Guillermo Rigondeaux in a super bantamweight championship boxing match Saturday in Las Vegas.
