It is the best fight that can be made in boxing today: Ward and Kovalev enter at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in Ring magazine's pound-for-pound ratings.

This time, however, Ward sought to erase doubts regarding the legitimacy of his first win by intelligently boxing Kovalev before wearing him down with shots to the body.

"I don't know if everybody knows, but I fought for three years for free, looking for any promoter", Kovalev said via BoxingScene.com.

The decision aside, it was a great fight featuring two of the absolute best boxers in the world.

Again, we're not talking about a guy who doesn't know how to win a fight. Now Kovalev hopes to leave no doubts in anyone's minds and take the decision out of the judge's hands. "I will finish his boxing career, be sure, because right now I'm in the corner", Kovalev said. "I don't know, I can't explain it", Kovalev said.

"What do you wanna hear from me?"

Yet, while Kovalev added, "I want to get another fight", the rivalry seems over with no rematch clause in effect and Ward saying afterward he might want to move to cruiserweight.
