Fight fans share their thoughts on Adonis Stevenson’s and Sergey Kovalev’s crushing Saturday victories and a potential showdown between the light heavyweight punchers, as well as dream ‘Super Six’ tournaments, James Kirkland-Glen Tapia, and more in this week’s Monday mailbag. Enjoy!
RING, WBA and WBC super middleweight champion Andre Ward said “I can’t wait to get back out there and perform for all my fans” after having endured surgery on his right shoulder on Friday.
Readers voted Andre Ward the Fighter of the Year by a wide margin in RingTV.com’s final year-end award poll. The undefeated super middleweight won the Super Six Cup, unified WBA and WBC belts and earned THE RING’s vacant title in 2011.
Andre Ward won the Super Six World Boxing Classic final against Carl Froch in the same fashion as he won his other bouts in Showtime’s 168-pound tournament — dominantly. Is Lucian Bute next for the new RING champ?
Glen Johnson could not compete with Lucian Bute, who domianted the veteran to a decision victory on Saturday. Perhaps only Andre Ward and Carl Froch can give the undefeated IBF 168-pound titleholder a fight.
