Earlier this month, #AndreWard won his highly anticipated rematch against Sergey Kovalev. The first meeting ended in a controversial decision that polarized the boxing community. The rematch was even more controversial, but this time it ended with Ward scoring a TKO.
Andre Ward was able to triumph over Kovalev again with punishing body shots that resulted in the referee calling it a night. Despite the controversy surrounding possible low blows, Andre Ward is the reigning light heavyweight champion and some huge bouts could be in his future.
Ward's trainer, Virgil Hunter, would like to see a superfight as one of those future clashes. Specifically, against a huge star that has recently emerged as the face of heavyweight boxing. Hunter has floated the idea of a move up to heavyweight to face champion, #AnthonyJoshua.
Joshua recently captured the IBO and WBA titles against living legend, Wladimir Klitschko. The thrilling eleven round war was a perfect crowning moment for Joshua. It completed his journey as a rising prospect, taking him to superstardom.
Given that Ward is also a huge star, it only makes sense that his next bout be a superfight. Joshua is not the only opponent that could fit into this, Tony Bellew's name is also in the mix. However, both of those fighters have their own business to attend to first. It appears that #WladimirKlitschko will exercise his right to a rematch.
After that second meeting, Joshua is compelled to face Kubrat Pulev or lose his IBF belt. #TonyBellew could be rematching former heavyweight champion, David Haye before a shot at Joseph Parker's belt. Though Bellew holds the #WBC cruiserweight strap, he is unlikely to return to the division.
How do you think Andre Ward would fair in these possible superfights?
