“Kovalev is too strong for Ward!” – Freddie Roach

10/02/2016

Legendary trainer Freddie Roach believes Sergey Kovalev is too big and too strong for Andre Ward.

The mouth watering Light-Heavyweight showdown could happen later on in the year following Ward’s decision to move up a weight.

“I like that fight a lot, Kovalev’s a big strong guy. Ward’s a good boxer,” said Roach to FightHype.

After seeing his new recruit Jean Pascal suffer at the hands of ‘The Krusher’ in person, Roach admitted: “Kovalev is actually a very good fighter.”

When pressed who would be victorious should the pair meet, the Hall of Famer was leaning towards the unbeaten Russian.

“I think Kovalev will be too strong for him at this time.”
