When more than 80% of newspapers and boxing experts and TV channels they had Kovalev winning by 7-5 rounds...how we can say that Ward outbox Kovalev..!! Every jab and power punch from Kovalev was take it hard by Ward and was stunned several times !! ..I think that this boxing match show again that the hometown decision are remaining hometown decisions , and judges they play how they wish with this !! This is a loss for boxing..a loss for fans ..a loss for pay per view viewers , because in this rhythm nobody will gone buy PPV ..to see what robbery..corruption..!! Take the previous match Hookers vs Perez - another big example of robbery !!
And Ward knows very well , back in his head that he lost the fight !! And yes Byrd didn't do nothing to stop Ward clinching and wrestling, most of time referee's they give a warning and at the end they take a point ....so..he did nothing...!! Ward he was coming back..yes...he was trying hard to be again on cards...but it was not doing so much that he can have the victory . Now is laughing in his mind , hiding behind a judges wrong decision !! Very disappointing decision for boxing at this level !!
