    I watched the fight on Korean TV and I thought Pac looked bad, I possibly would've thought differently iif there was English commentary. He def won and was more or less landing the important shots the whole fight, but he needs to hang it up IMO. He seemed to be eating a lot of flush shots for no reason and didn't look nearly as crisp as he did 6-7 months ago against Bradley.

    Kovalev is doing a great job of keeping Ward on the defensive and not letting him land.

    It was close but I thought Kove would have had it with the knockdown point. Ward did win most of the rounds in the second half though.

    It was a close fight. Could of gone either way.

    That's probably what gave ward the victory. Sergey got tagged a lot in later rounds. He was also hitting ward, but not as cleanly as he was early on.

    My main beef is that every judge gave it to Ward. Yeah, he was landing in the later part of the fight, but sans knockdown, the control wasn't truly present. He did get the better of Kove in the clinch, though and his movement was arguably better, but he didn't win enough exchanges to warrant all of the judges giving him the nod.

    Ward's body work was brilliant. So many trainers harp on going to the body, but it feel nebulous at best when trying to point out examples of it actually working sometimes. That was a perfect example of going to the body if I've ever seen it.

    So many people screaming robbery, and to them I say yall need to learn how you score a fight on the 10 point must system and how ward EASILY swept the 2nd half of the fight and stole rds from the first, and even with a knockdown and a 10-8 rd, still won...

    This is what I've been saying. Kov might have done more damage in the total fight but Ward won more rounds, even if by a thin margin. They just mad because one of your main weapons in their agenda is no more. They need ta hold that.

    True story. I could see it going either way so I'm not gonna harp on that too much, but Kovalev fought a horrible 2nd half. Those body shots from Ward really sapped a lot of his energy.

    I thought it was a draw after Ward dominated the second half of the fight. There were rounds in the middle that could have been scored in either competitors favor. I can't wait for the rematch to see which adjustments both of them make.

    It was an incredible fight.

    Not gonna repost everything i said on discord but yeah no robbery but arguments can be made for a draw or even a kova win. I watched it on mute and without knowing the score and i had it 114-113 ward just like the judges lmao. Ward woulda won 115-112 if he didnt throw away round 10 tryna showboat

    Rematch needs to happen in russia

    If Kovalev had not slowed down for the 2nd half and maintained what he did earlier, it would not even be a close fight with so many people split on the decision or calling robbery. He got comfortable knowing that he had a knockdown. Despite all of that, I was impressed with kovalev's boxing. People were expecting him to turn it into some brawl and go for the KO, but he was very disciplined in his boxing. He hanged with ward, and got the better of him many times. A rematch would be nice.

    I had Ward winning round 4, then 6-12 and round 10 I think he threw. Maybe 11. So he won 7 rounds but it depends on the knockdown and how its scored. He either drew Kovalev or edged him out.

    Not that anyone cares, but chisora and dillian whyte press conference before their fight in the UK was hilarious. Chisora is the type of guy that tries too hard to sell a fight by creating drama and controversy, but no one cares or wants to watch him, haha.

    Danny was better when he pressed the fight....unfortunately he didnt press the fight enough to make a difference.

    Pacquiao/Khan is now OFF. Apparently they thought they had a $38 mill investment in the fight and it never came through.

    It was a robbery to be honest. Jacobs won, and I felt that he did more to win despite the knockdown. So much politics and bias in boxing right now...

    You could make the argument that Jacobs got robbed in the Garden, but after watching the fight again on mute, that knockdown in the 4th is what probably saved GGG in the judges' scorecards.

    at first i felt like it was a robbery

    but tbh jacobs gave away rounds being cocky and stupid, letting his hands down, trying to shoulder roll, doing dumb shit. shouldve been a draw tbh, it def wasnt a win for triple gay, but it wasnt a clear win for jacobs.


    choclatito deserved to lose for not letting his fucking hands go
