One of boxing’s most highly anticipated match-up’s is one step closer to being a reality. According to Dan Rafael of ESPN.com, the fight will take place on (HBO PPV) Nov. 19 at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Both New York and Las Vegas were being considered as the site for the fight and ultimately Las Vegas made more sense according to Main Events CEO Kathy Duva.
“We went back and forth with Las Vegas and New York for quite a while, as both venues were enthused about hosting the event”
The bout between Kovalev-Ward is contingent on both men winning their interim bouts which will take place this summer and if all goes as planned this fight will be the biggest in boxing with the winner staking his claim as the pound for pound king in the sport.
