Probably the biggest fight of the year and the one fans has been waiting for couple of years is finally confirmed as Sergey Kovalev will be defending his light-heavyweight title against undefeated Andre Ward on Saturday, 19th November 2016. It will be an HBO pay per view which has kind of contributed in HBO ditching none other than Manny Pacquiao who is also fighting earlier in November. Which goes to show the magnitude of this fight.
Kovalev vs Ward TV Coverage Details: The fight between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev took months of negotiations to finally be confirmed and HBO played a big part in ensuring the fight and they will be broadcasting it live in the US via PPV.
