Short Preview: Andre Ward made his name several years ago in that Super Six tournament where he defeated the likes of Mikkel Kessler, Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham but since than his career has been stalled due to off the ring promotional disputes. He moved to light-heavyweight earlier in the year and produce couple of quality performances but this without a shadow of a doubt his biggest test yet in his otherwise undefeated career. What is more interesting is both fighters coming into this bout with similar records, Sergey Kovalev himself is undefeated and widely considered as the best light-heavyweight out there.

Andre Ward became new light-heavyweight champion after beating Sergey Kovalev in one of the most closely fought bout in recent history where although result shows a unanimous win but all three judges scored the fight at [114-113], [114-113] and [114-113].

Ward defeated Kovalev in the operning bout last year but it was a very controversial decision with many boxing experts scoring the game as draw. But Ward was given a very narrow unanimous decision.

There are three undercard fights including, Oleksandr Gvozdyk taking on Isaac Chilemba in light-heavyweight elimination bout while Curtis Stevens fight James de la Rosa in middleweight category followed by Maurice Hooker taking on Darleys Perez for super light-weight. So the night is all set for boxing fans and it is a great way to end the 2016 with probably the biggest and potentially most competitive bout of the year.

Andre Ward is challenging, Sergey Kovalev for all his three light-heavyweight belts including (WBA, IBF and WBO). Ward already has WBA Super middleweight title which is not at stake.
