Andre Ward Easy UD In Tuneup For Kovalev Showdown 

Posted by

Andre Ward defeated Alexander Brand by UD to ensure a November 19 date with Sergey Kovalev. 

As far as tune up opponents go, Brand was a tough out who did just enough to survive and allow Ward to showcase a few things. Ward looked quick and sharp as he should have considering the opponent. Ward’s left hook and defense stood out and he switched to southpaw a few times to exploit a few openings. 

Honestly, it was a bit disappointing of a matchup. No drama and almost enough to put you to sleep. 

The Kovalev-Ward bout will pit two top five pound4pound fighters against each other. 

Early take here-

Ward can outbox a stalking Kovalev easily but at times in the fight will engage which may be his downfall.
