In a big superfight on the horizon – I can’t wait for the WBA / WBO / IBF light heavyweight championship: Segery Kolvec (30-0-1 / 26 by KO) vs. Andre Ward ( 29-0 / 15 by KO), scheduled for 12 rounds. It is set for November 19, 2016 in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena and will air on HBO Pay-Per-View.


 As a boxing beat writer back in the seventies and eighties reporting for my local Santa Barbara News-Press, I used to give out my fight predictions. I have since abandoned that format, but for this fight because so many have asked me, I will let my prediction be known – I like Ward by a close, but unanimous, decision. When people ask me why – I make myself brief by simply saying “I wouldn’t bet against Andre Ward if you held a gun to my head.” This fight is a fight fan’s dream fight – both are unbeaten, both are ranked on everybody’s top pound-for-pound list in boxing, and with the outcome anybody’s 50-50 guess?
