Although I thought Ward was lucky to get the decision in the first fight, I think he will win the rematch, possibly by a more convincing margin. As the smarter and more skilled of the two, Ward has the means to change the way the fight goes, by making adjustments to avoid getting caught as often by Kovalev's power shots, and landing more clean shots of his own. Ward is an intelligent boxer and he will be well aware that the first fight could easily have gone Kovalev's way. In the first fight Ward was given too much credit for flashy footwork and hand flurries, and was getting points for punches that didn't land cleanly. He will know this and will know that he can't afford to fight the same way, and rely on the generosity of the judges again. Ward has the ability to work more on the outside, only slipping inside when kovalev is off balance, and should be able to outmanoeuvre the bigger man without getting tagged as easily as he was in the first fight. Kovalev is extremely strong and will always be dangerous, of course. And, although he can also box, I don't see what Kovalev can do to make it a different fight, other than trying even harder to knock ward out. This might be his undoing. I might be completely wrong and end up losing money (not for the first time), but my money's on Ward to win the fight. I think it will go the distance again, but I'm sticking to the match odds, just in case.
good forecast Des.

No one's going to fight Ward now. Back into hibernation
are you suggesting the ref/judges are bent for Ward to win his fights?

Kellerman wants to tell the fighters what to think. he should just shut up and listen to them.
