Kovalev and Ward ~ RECAP

andre-ward-vs-sergey-kovalev-odds

Andre Ward eked out a controversial victory over Sergey Kovalev in a close fight but a fight that many at ringside felt he lost.  I personally had the fight 115-112 in favor of Kovalev but it is not a robbery that Ward won but you can make the case it was a stretch as Judges gave the benefit of doubt to Ward in many of the close rounds. 

Ward problem was two -old, the first being that he has not been as active as Kovalev and he was moving up in weight and the second that became obvious over the the first two rounds; he couldn’t match Kovalev in power as Kovalev piston like jab kept Ward off balanced and Ward had difficulty penetrating Kovalev’s defenses.  A straight right in the second round sent Ward down and he was down three points after the first two rounds.

Pacquiao Wins Welterweight Title With Unanimous Decision Over Vargas

manny-vargas-2

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America

Manny Pacquiao decided to add one more title to his resume as he fought for Jessie Vargas WBO welterweight title.  Pacquiao was the favorite but at this stage in the PacMan’s career, age could become a factor. Pacquiao does have another day job as a Senator in the Philippine Congress and at 37, the speed and quickness can quickly disappear.

After a non-eventful first round, Pacquiao speed took hold as he nailed Vargas with right hooks and a straight left that sent Vargas down for an eight count in the second round.  Vargas looked more angry than hurt as he arose from the floor, but PacMan drew first blood.

Throughout the third and fourth round, Pacquiao aggression was having its effect as his combinations were fast and hard.  Vargas didn’t seem to have any answers.  During the sixth round, Vargas stood his ground as he landed big rights as he put distance between himself and Pacquiao.  Vargas found that as long as he kept Pacquiao at a distance, he could make this a competitive fight.   Vargas left jab proved effective and allowed him to connect with straight rights.
