When and where is the Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev fight?
The two boxers will square off once again on June 17.
The mega-fight will take place at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Their last fight was also in Las Vegas, but at the T-Mobile Center.
What time is the fight and where can I watch it?
The fight will be shown live on Sky Sports, and although the exact channel is yet to be decided, it will probably be on Sky Sports 1.
The programme will likely start early Sunday morning in the UK, so June 18.
You can of course visit SunSport’s boxing page to find out who won the big fight.
What happened the first time the two boxers met?
The first fight was intriguing as it was divisive.
Andre Ward was knocked down in the second round, but came back to win the fight on all three judges’ scorecards.
But it was by the slimmest of margins – 114-113 on all three.
Most media in the T-Mobile Center had Kovalev winning the fight, with the Russian shellshocked when he found out he had lost.
Who does SunSport think will win the rematch?
Andre Ward has the superior boxing skills, but hasn’t faced anyone with the power the heavy-handed Russian brings to the table.
But for us, Kovalev’s chance was in that second round of the first fight.
Ward will study his mistakes meticulously, and can score another points win.
