    Thumbs up, Ward comes out retirement to face Canelo if he defeats Kovalev.
    I think this would be Canelo's second official defeat if Ward faces him.

    Of Course Canelo will win it’s the only reason he’s fighting Kovelov. Canelo won’t fight Boo Boo, or Charlow because he could lose. So he cherry picks fights. Canelo is a FAKE champion with blown up media hype. UNDEFEATED BELT HOLDERS CALLING CANELO OUT & he’s running!!

    Ward wouldn't be able to get away with his foul fest against Canelo and there would be VADA testing. Ward will stay retired. He knew 175lbs. was heating up and retired with a gift win followed by a nut punch tko. Glad to not see his atrocious and foul filled style ever again.

    Ward cleaned out the they're super middleweight division. And he beat them all in their prime. He moves up to light heavyweight. He beat Sergey both fights.but I thought he lost the first one.if ward fights canelo at 175 he beats him.lets face it canelo is in his prime, and he has questionable wins over every good fighter he faced. I thought he lost both triple g fights. But because he did better in the rematch. People think he won. I think canelo got better as a fighter. They waited to triple g got old.

    Per the Information ESPN gave to Fury's corner, would they do the same if it wasn't one of their network fighters ( one that they invested close to $100M) ? I think not, that was wrong because it changed the dynamics of the fight. Broadcaster are there to broadcast for the people watching at home not the coaches or corner of a fighter.

    This was good ESPN do more work like this, no politics, no race baiting, no one here was forced to argue a stupid position, etc. This was straight to the point, clear, and insightful.

    He lost to Kovalev in first and should of had a point taken off for low blows in the 2nd except the ref gave him a TKO victory. Bull****

  • Christian Martinez
    Christian Martinez 20 days ago

    Why does he make a living out of getting belts and vacating them instead of clearing out the division. Seems like he picks the weakest champ in the next weight class to make him look great. Could've fought Callum Smith,Billy Joe Sanders, and Andrade. Apparantly moving up to fight kovalev a grizzled veteran instead of usyk or beterbiev is making history.

    Canelo will probably win another fixed fight. I am sick and tired of corrupt judges.....😡

    Let me make one thing clear, Andre Ward would school Canelo if they thought and he knows it, hence why he said they would not and will not call his name out!! So there you go, if Canelo wants that smoke he just has to call him out once he beats Krusher 🤣

    Uhhhhhhh if Wilder hits that eye i don't think the issue is whether a cut is going to open up....Fury is going to be unconscious....Wilder doesn't open up cuts he puts ppl to sleep.

    gmann sanchez 21 day ago

    Basically there's no hiding in a 15-round fight but these fighter is now and it just for the money and the payday they're not looking for a knockout or to get hurt so unfortunately that's not what makes a really good fight

  • gmann sanchez
    gmann sanchez 21 day ago

    Fighters these days aren't used to fighting 15-round fights like in the old days they don't have the same attitude of do or die so it's a boring fight all the time it's rare to find a good fight

    Come on guys no mames wey, Kovalev gonna power jab and straight right hand all night till he tkos Canelo. but I can totally see Canelo winning by split robbery decision if Kovalev cant finish him.

  • Mong Lee
    Mong Lee 22 days ago

    Andre is a great champion but why he pretending like he stop Kovalev with a body shot? Lol he also lost that first fight too. That's why he decided to retire undefeated Instead of a third fight. Smart guy.

    Andre Ward talkin extra greasy about Kovalev, but he did take the heart out of him in their 2nd bout. I feel that hes personally biased against Kovalev.

    SPIDERM0OSE 22 days ago

    Wards a class act.
    He was a dirty fighter at times but he was a rock, unbreakable & had excellent ring generalship. Any natural ability he lacked like one shot power, he made for with intelligence, hard work toughness n courage.

      There's no reason for him to come out of retirement to face Canelo, unlike Andy Ruiz, Canelo hasn't knocked out anyone that matters in the sport.
