Saturday night’s boxing main event may not feature the names that will draw one million casual fans to buy a PPV, but it’s one of the fights hardcore fans have been anticipating for quite some time. This weekend, Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev do battle in a massive Light Heavyweight showdown. It’s a battle between two undefeated fighters (and two men who have, for the most part, honestly earned that “undefeated” status), and two of the top four pound for pound fighters in the world today.
The road to Ward vs. Kovalev has been long, with a lengthy period of discussion, plus tune-up fights for both men. There was fear that it wouldn’t actually happen because, you know, boxing. Yet here we are. Only one stop remains on that road - the weigh-in.
Join us here at Bloody Elbow for a live stream of the Ward vs. Kovalev weigh-ins. The weigh-in takes place today, Friday, November 18 with a start time of 5:30 p.m. ET / 2:30 p.m. PT. You can watch the weigh-in live stream online above, or here on YouTube.
