He wouldve stopped him later or won the rest of the rounds. With that said, I had Kovalev up a round before the last round.

Re: Boxing Off-Topic

One thing on the low blows that RJJ mentioned after the fight, both fighters but he pointed out Kovalev wore his cup above the belly button. He mentioned that being a reason that some of the "low" shots from Ward wern't called low by Weeks. Not sure if that is true but it offered a reasonable explanation in my mind. It was a bad stoppage in a championship fight at least give the man a standing count and warn him to show you something....

Not sure what Kathy Duva is really hoping for with the appeal. Even if the NSAC throws out the fight the market for a 3rd has all but dried up, given how Kovalev looked at the end of rounds 7 and 8. Ward has nothing left to prove against him and there wouldn't be much money. Kovalev needs to get to Stephenson before Ward can if he wants another shot at him.

This is what Ward said about a possible third fight with Kovalez:

"It may make sense if say, for example, he fought Stevenson, won a belt, two or three fights down the road.

I missed this. How much could Pac make off of a non-PPV fight?

EDIT: Hmmm.., Bob Arum just said on ESPN First Take that the country of Austrailia (the fight's in Brisbane) is subsidizing the fight, allowing Top Rank to show it as a non-PPV fight.

I am sure when it gets to the bottom of it. Pacman will be getting screwed either way

i totally agree.....i was pulling for ward but was very disappointed how it ended. kovalev deserved better than that. yes, he was getting hit, but let the guy go down at least and then if you want to stop it, go right ahead.
