Four days before of the biggest boxing bout of the year, where undefeated fighters, Sergey Kovalev and Andre Ward square off in Las Vegas for the WBA/IBF/WBO Light heavyweight championship; WBC Cruiserweight Champion and boxing pundit, Tony Bellew, claims that Ward is unbeatable at light-heavyweight as well as super-middleweight. 

Andre Ward will challenge Sergey Kovalev on Saturday, November 19th, for all three of his belts, while looking to continue his undefeated streak in professional boxing. A colossal clash between two giants of the sport, as one fighter, will forego his unbeaten record, at the end of the night in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Bellew believes Ward is the best fighter on the planet between 168 to 175 pounds, claiming not even Sergey Kovalev, will be able to stop the American. 

“Andre Ward is a master technician," WBC cruiserweight world champion Bellew told Sky Sports. "No fighter from super-middle to light-heavyweight can beat him.

"His up-close game is second to none, and he can negate any power puncher in the business. To get inside you have to take some stuff to get there and that's always the danger.”

Ward dominated the super middleweight category, after which he decided to move up a weight class to the light heavyweight division. 

WBA Super, WBO and IBF light-heavyweight world champion Sergey ‘The Krusher’ Kovalev, is only Andre Ward’s third fight, after moving up a weight class but Bellew believes it will have little significance post the outcome of the fight, as he claims Ward will crush the Krusher. Bellow continued to praise the ‘Son of God’ Ward, here’s what he said: 

“He reminds me of Bernard Hopkins from about 15 years ago, you could call him a modern day version. Going up in weight is no issue either. Ward has been a huge super-middleweight for a while now, and those extra few pounds he has gained have no significance.”

“He's facing Kovalev next, and they are both big light-heavyweights. They are very similar when considering their dimensions and size, and in certain departments, Ward may even be bigger,” Bellew went on to add.
