[url=http://www.cdb.tv/analisis-y-pronostico-para-andre-ward-vs-sergey-kovalev-2] An?lisis y pron?stico para Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev 2 -Nuestra visi?n de esta esperada revancha del s?bado 17 de junio en el Mandalay Bay de Las Vegas. Enemistad, antipat?a, frases altisonantes por parte de ambos p?giles y sus entrenadores, adem?s de un resultado controversial en el primer enfrentamiento, permiten avizorar una revancha cargada de emociones entre el estadounidense [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andre_Ward]Andre Ward, campe?n defensor, y el retador ruso Sergey Kovalev, el 17 de junio, en el hotel y casino Mandalay Bay, de Las Vegas. El pasado noviembre, en la T-Mobile Arena, tambi?n en la Ciudad del Pecado, “El Hijo de Dios” Ward (31-0-0, 15 KOs) recibi? fallo un?nime ante “El Triturador” Kovalev ( 30-1-1, 28 KOs), entonces due?o de los t?tulos semipesados, correspondientes a la Asociaci?n Mundial (AMB), la Organizaci?n Mundial (OMB) y la Federaci?n Internacional (FIB). Aunque Kovalev le propin? una ca?da a Ward en el segundo episodio y en lo adelante la reyerta estuvo muy cerrada con ventajas alternas, los tres jueces se inclinaron por el norte?o con id?nticas votaciones de 114-113, resultado que muchos han criticado al considerarlo injusto. Desde los dos campamentos se han lanzado frases hirientes y no han sido ajenos los preparadores John David Jackson (Kovalev) y Virgil Hunter (Ward), defensores a ultranza del triunfo de sus respectivos pupilos. Nuestro pron?stico: Andre Ward ganar? por Decisi?n
