Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward fight time plus date and venue

The best fight of the year is upon us. Two of the best fighters in the world – Sergey Kovalev and Andre Ward – will meet for the former’s IBF, WBA and WBO world light-heavyweight titles. Ward, one of the most talented technicians in the game, cleaned up at super-middleweight and recently moved to 175lbs, where Kovalev reigns supreme with his dynamite-laden fists. Both unbeaten, the pair have created a 50-50 fight between two elite operators in their primes. They clash tomorrow night (November 19) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Rounds scheduled

12 three minute rounds.

Undercard highlights

Light-heavyweight contenders Isaac Chilemba and Oleksandr Gvozdyk meet in a crossroads clash over 10 rounds. Chilemba, in his last outing, went the distance with Kovalev though that may have been his last chance at world honours. Unbeaten Gvozdyk has looked mightily impressive as a professional so far. Super-lightweight prospect Maurice Hooker will look to make himself a major contender by taking on former lightweight world champion Darleys Perez while middleweights Curtis Stevens and James De la Rosa meet over 10.
