Former NFL superstar Marshawn Lynch paid a visit to Two-Time World Champion Andre Ward at training camp, ahead of his “Pound For Pound” showdown against Sergey Kovalev on Nov. 19 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
In Ward’s first fight at light heavyweight against the then-undefeated Sullivan Barrera at Oracle Arena, “Beast Mode” was part of a star-studded “entourage” including Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Michael B. Jordan that walked Ward into the ring and then proceeded to rush the ring upon the boxing phenome’s unanimous decision victory. Since announcing his retirement from the NFL, the Oakland-native running back hasn’t missed a single Ward fight this year.
Kovalev vs. Ward “Pound For Pound”, a 12-round mega-fight for the WBO/IBF/WBA light heavyweight title at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, is presented by Main Events, Roc Nation Sports, Krusher Promotions and Andre Ward Promotions and is sponsored by the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Corona Extra, Zappos, JetLux and Monster Products. The championship event will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. Tickets are available on axs.com and the T-Mobile Arena box office.
