Ward took the three world titles from Kovalev back in November of 2016 and the two have been on a collision course for a re-match since that disputed outcome. The first bout saw Ward win a unanimous decision by scores of 114-113 on all three judges cards, a result the Kovalev camp heavily disputed.
