Re: Ward vs Kovalev...170 lbs?
Not interested. Kovalevs popularity skyrockets now and he wants to unify his division. If Ward wants a fight with him (hes not even fighting people in his own division), he can move up grab a loose strap and bring something to the party. Kovalevs got nothing to gain (belts from a division below he cant even defend if weights an issue) and wards got nothing to lose. (if he gets beat, everyone will say that kovalev was bigger and stronger anyway). So id rather not see the attempt so that ward can spoil all the new found excitement for the light heavy division with his patented hug and slug. only my opinion. im sure others will share your enthusiasm.
They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.
