Kovalev won the fight
just watched the fight again. There was no way Ward won that fight. Was it a close fight ....sure, but he shouldn't have been given the victory.
I've seen enough fights when a guy gets knocked down (in this case in the 2nd round, that's very early) and still manage to win the fight. It was a flash knock down Ward got up in like 4 seconds. He got his bell rung sure, I don't think he was ever in trouble of being knocked out though. I really thought the fight was a Draw, but I can make a case for either fighter being the winner. K, had some moments, but in terms of rounds won I won't say Ward dominate but I think he won the majority of the rounds.
Hard to have a draw with boxing rules and only one knockdown. I've thought for a long time that they need to revamp the scoring rules and the 10 point must system. Not sure this fight made a particularly strong case for that though. This was a close fight by most any scoring rules.
Should be a rematch. I felt like Kovalev won as well.
I don't think many people are comprehending that it could have been scored either way. It was that great of a fight.
