18 June 2017 National Sport
REPEAT OR REVENGE?
We’ll bring you live updates as Andre Ward resumes his rivalry with Sergey Kovalev in a Las Vegas rematch.
Ward claimed victory by the slenderest of margins in the first fight in November, taking a unanimous decision from all three judges by a single point.
But Kovalev has continued to question the verdict after losing his unbeaten record and vowed to inflict an emphatic victory in the second fight.
Will Ward retain his WBA ‘super’ IBF and WBO light-heavyweight belts once again, or will Kovalev rip the away the titles with a satisfying revenge win? We shall soon find out.
