Since he's such a cerebral fighter with that ability to adjust, might Ward have an easier time with Kovalev in their rematch Saturday after having spent 12 rounds surveying Kovalev's tendencies with that outstanding sweet-science brain?
Sergey Kovalev: Net worth (presumed) We don't know how much Kovalev is worth heading into tonight's rematch with Andre Ward and couldn't find any conclusive information.
Both are skilled fighters, but neither is a pay-per-view attraction in the manner of Mayweather or McGregor, two dynamic personalities that demand attention. This has been a great year for boxing and they've gotten nearly every fight they could want.

Ward's trainer, Virgil Hunter, hopes Kovalev is better. "First of all, obviously, that is absolutely in the contract, number one". All three American judges scoring the fight 114-113, but the fight drew varying results from pundits.
While Ward will make $6.5 million in the fight, Kovalev has agreed to fight for a percentage of the tickets and pay-per-view money instead of a purse. Most people thought Carl Frampton had the key to Leo Santa Cruz, but Cruz won their 2 fight. "I knew what I had in me". "Sergey has no inside game, so I focused on mine, and that made the difference".
Coverage of the fight in the United Kingdom will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 as part of their "Fight Night International: Ward v Kovalev" program.
"I went over all my past mistakes and I'm very excited", Kovalev said. "As a competitor, I want that definitive victory". "Everybody is talking about this bad event that's going to take place and that's fine, you'll talk about it when the time comes, but I wish you wouldn't talk about it now because what we have here is a great event". I'm just going to leave it at that.
Kovalev wore a black baseball hat with big white letters that read "WAR" on it on the press conference this week. They've put a line through his chances to cause an upset inside-the-distance however, and I must say I don't blame them. It could go one of two ways: Ward could get the nod and stake his claim as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, or Kovalev could get his redemption and possibly force a rubber match.
Ward forced to pose for pictures on his own after the presser. Still, the fight is worth the attention.
"The timing of it, we're in the middle of a fight week, it is what it is", Ward said. He was able to outlast Isaac Chilemba for a unanimous decision in July 2016 but looked exhausted in the final rounds. Before losing to Ward in November, the 34-year-old Russian, now based in Florida, had never suffered defeat, or indeed even come close to it.
