“It’s going to be difficult for both of us, but very interesting” the IBF, WBO and WBA World Champion respectfully answered.

November has been ear marked for the potential showdown with both men looking to have a fight in between.

“I’m the Champion. Would I fight him here in Oakland? Why not… Though it’s not a very big arena. It’ll be fairer in somewhere like Las Vegas or the legendary Madison Square Garden, I’ve never fought there.”

Kovalev, like Ward, boasts an impressive, unbeaten resume and is on the lookout for his next foe.

“If Sullivan Barrera is ready to fight, I’m ready too! I want a stay busy fight first. My wish is to have four fights a year,” confessed the 32 year old banger.
