Andre Ward edges Sergey Kovalev to win 175-pound titles

LAS VEGAS — Andre Ward survived a second-round knockdown to defeat Sergey Kovalev by a tight, but unanimous decision Saturday at T-Mobile Arena.

Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 knockouts) put Ward down with a short right in the only round that wasn’t competitive, as it seemed at least half the rounds were virtually even. All three judges scored it 114-113 but no one would’ve argued had it gone the other way.

Ward took Kovalev’s three sanctioning body light heavyweight titles with the victory.

It seems a rematch is in order.

Full reports will follow shortly.
