Fight Brewing: Andre Ward vs. Sergey Kovalev


Sergey Kovalev promoter, Kathy Duva of Main Events told BoxingScene on Friday that she had another meeting with Roc Nation, and a fight was up coming between her fighter Kovalev and Roc Nation’s Andre Ward.

”I’ve had another conversation this week with the people from Roc Nation and it is definitely something that is being discussed and ultimately likely to happen,” Duva was quoted.

“As far as Sergey is concerned, right now, we have a plan for him to fight in Russia this fall and then probably come back on HBO in February or March,” Duva explained.

“If that can be the Ward fight and I’m not sure it can because I think he’s talking about fighting in November or December. So we’re probably looking at next spring. It’s possible if HBO can accomodate it, yes. It will depend on their schedule – which is never easy anywhere. We’re trying to find a date that works for both entities, the arena in Russia and HBO.” Duva added.

Kovalev is set to fight Nadjib Mohemmedi on July 25th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, while Ward recently returned to the ring on June 20th in Oakland, dispatching Paul Smith in nine rounds at a catch-weight of 172 pounds.
