    From the second half of the first fight Ward took Kov's heart and soul*.

    Unforunately Kov is a bully by nature, and once bullies have their sense of invincibility pricked the entire house of cards comes a crashin down.

    He should have retired after that fight because the combination of this and ageing were always going to see future humiliations ahead.

    * btw, I do think Kov won the first fight on balance but Ward was clearly getting to him by the back end of it and the second fight's results had become completely predictable

    Ward kicked his ass...not sure why this is such a big deal to people. The better fighter won.

    You wish I would because it would make you feel more comfortable in your own bigotry. I was never a big Ward fan. Ward won because Kovalev folded under the skill and body attack of Ward.

    And the obvious low blow had NOTHING to do with anything?

    Why is it so hard for some of you to admit there was a low blow at the time of stoppage?

    I think Ward won his two fights but he did hit Kovalev low for a fact he was warned by the ref, last shots was below the belt line in my opinion. I have never seen such low shots being accepted to the face of a ref before. Low shots or not the winner was clearly Ward, but you have to give peak Kovalev credit for making it tight the first fight and competing in the second. Kovalev was very close to ATG level. I think if he manages to win back another world title before retirement he is automatically hall of fame. But for that he needs to avoid Beterbiev and recover some punch resistance. What I think is this: Canelo will move back to 168, the title will become vacant and Kovalev just need to position himself to be the legit contender. He won't have to fight Beterbiev, the way it works I think the fighter he will have to beat won't even be known to the average boxing fans.

    You come off as an only bigot here.
    You accuse everyone of racism, but you're the only one who mentiones fighter's race and ethnicity.

    Now this is pure BS This was a disgusting performance by Ward & Weekes. Ward was DELIBERATELY punching low throughout the fight & Weekes watched him do it. Why?? You'll have to ask those two about that. At the time of the stoppage Kovalev was ahead on judges cards so pray tell me how did Ward "kick his ass"?
    All I ever want to see in every fight is a fair fight fairly officiated with the better man on the night getting the win he deserves. This did NOT happen in either Ward/Kov fight or
    GGG/Canelo fights. Ward is a DIRTY FIGHTER no two ways about that & Weekes should have been severely reprimanded for allowing him to do it

    Ward imo, never met a prime Kovalev, he was nasty around the Cleverley period, hungry and hurtful with every shot, Ward hit an alcoholic in the bollox to win that fight !

    Low blow or not, Kova was already hurt by a head shot, it was just a matter of time anyways...

    All of this and yet you claimed Weeks called it right down the middle and did a great job in PBF-Maidana 1 when he allowed Maidana to foul rough up hit PBF behind the head and head butt him all night long. If Ward is a dirty fighter as you claim what about Maidana? You're embarrassing and have no credibility.

    The last shot was a bit low and Ward should have got a warning,it's just unfortunate that Weeks ruined what should have been 1 of Ward finest victories as Kovalev was on his way out from some beautiful legitimate body shots that some have wrongly claimed were low
