The Russian lost their first fight on points in November to relinquish the WBO, WBA and IBF light heavyweight titles to Ward, despite several pundits believing Kovalev was the victor.
During a heated post-press conference, Main Events CEO Kathy Duva said she will file a protest with the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Monday following Andre Ward's eighth round knockout victory over Sergey Kovalev. There is no discussion, the right hand is what got it started.
With another close round taking place in the 8th round, Ward uncorked a hellacious right hand that clearly took Kovalev's legs from underneath him. I'd like to see him fight Anthony Joshua.
WBO, WBA and IBF light heavyweight champion Andre "S.O.G".
"He's really lucky, 'Son of Judges, ' " Kovalev said of Ward, twisting Ward's "Son of God" nickname.
"I have never been the most talented, I have never been the biggest, I just keep knocking down giants one by one", said Ward. Their first fight was the biggest of Ward's career - his first on pay-per-view and first in Las Vegas - and he feels he has a lot more to show boxing fans. As a result Ward retained the unified light heavyweight championship.
Bjp names dalit leader as presidential candidate
The BJP on Monday announced Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind , a Dalit, as the NDA nominee for the Presidential post. Chandrasekhar Rao welcomed the NDA government's decision, BJP's ally Shiv Sena remained apprehensive.
The bitter rivals had produced another evenly contested fight, with Ward sending out an early warning to Kovalev by landing his crisp right hand in the closing seconds of the opening round.
Kovalev now moved like a man in a trance, and late in the round, Ward was hammering out what little strength was left in Kovalev's body. With a $6.5 million payday in his bank account, Ward will look toward other challenges. To Ward's credit, he bounced back in the seventh and, in a precursor to how the fight would end, went for the body. Kovalev did his best to hold on but was hit low for the third time without losing a point.
The 33-year-old screamed to the world that he is now the undisputed No 1 following his conquering of Kovalev. That's the kind of stuff that I've been dealing with since I've been a kid. But Kovalev was fading, just as he had in the first fight, and he picked up the pace. In the second round Kovalev used an effective jab. It happened. That's always been a dream of mine and that's something me and Virgil [Hunter, his trainer] talk about. Are they trying to get better, or are they laying all their eggs in the basket that says they won the first fight, so they don't have to? But boxing history suggests the odds of getting a decision overturned are extremely low. I think would be a very interesting fight. [Kovalev] got hit with three low blows, four actually, in the last round. "I knew I had him hurt". However the beef has continued to build up, with issues like racism and revenge clouding the air between the two boxers.
Kovalev, a Russian who lives in Los Angeles, had complained bitterly about the scoring in the first fight, though he appeared to run out of gas as the fight went on.
But for Ward, the big thing was the plan.
Ward, an articulate African American of obvious charm, is regarded by some as the best pound for pounder in the world, a classic defensive artist in the finest American tradition.
