Ward vs. Kovalev – PREVIEW

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member of Boxing Writers Association of America. Our mutual friend Rusty Rubin (R.I.P.) was instrumental in connecting Tom to dmboxing.com in 2008.

Sergey Kovalev faces Andre Ward in their second bout.  For Kovalev, this represents revenge as he felt that he won their first fight and he certainly had a good case.  Ward managed to win a close bout on the judges’ score card but in their first bout, Ward did not look like the Ward of old using his speed and defense to avoid getting hit while countering effectively.  Whether this was due to his age, past injuries or the early power of Kovalev, Ward did not look like the fighter who dominated the Super Middleweight division against some of the elite fighters of that division. 

The question will be if Ward can recapture some of his youth and show the defensive skills that allowed him to prosper in the Super Middleweight.  Kovalev is a solid boxer with power go to with his sound techniques.  Throughout the bout, his punches had more pop and this was self-evident over the first four rounds in which he sent Ward down for an eight count while taking a big lead on the cards.  Starting in the third round, Ward simply turned the fight into a brawl and fought on the inside of the powerful Russian.

Joshua vs. Klitschko – PREVIEW

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member of Boxing Writers Association of America. Our mutual friend Rusty Rubin (R.I.P.) was instrumental in connecting Tom to contribute his expertise to dmboxing.com in 2008 – Tom is truly respected and appreciated by all.

Wladimir Klitschko is nearing the end of his career and he will be facing Anthony Joshua, who may be the heir to the Klitschko brothers’ former control of the title. From 2004 until Tyson Fury upset in 2016 of Wladimir, the Klitschko’s brothers have owned a portion of the heavyweight title  Wladimir won the WBO title in 2000 but lost his title with a upset knockout by Corrie Sanders in  and after regaining the title, he lost it in yet another knockout lost to Lamon Brewster. 

Wladimir reputation was a big fighter with a glass jaw but when he teamed up with Emanuel Steward who directed Lennox Lewis’ career to the top.  From that point Wladimir along with his brother dominated the heavyweight as they beat one opponent after another.  Wladimir has participated in 28 title bouts and winning 25 of them, a heavyweight record but for many pundits, Wladimir has never been granted his place as a elite heavyweight as he fought in what many view as a weak era of heavyweights but like Larry Holmes before him; Wladimir and his brother Vitali may get their due years later.  Holmes was never consider one of the elites until years later when he proved competitive in his 40’s.
