FightHub caught up with former HBO fight commentator Larry Merchant to get his thoughts on the Sergey Kovalev-Andre Ward Fight. Here's what he had to say:
"I thought it was a classic hometown decision, I thought Kovalev won the fight."
On the performance of both Sergey Kovalev and Andre Ward:
"It was more ugly than beautiful. The match itself was better than the fight."
On if he was surprised by Ward's adjustments halfway through the fight:
"I give Ward credit, he fought the best fight he could, but it was one punch and clinch and I just think he didn't do enough but the judges all agreed.
"I didn't score it, I thought it was 7-5 for Kovalev with the knockdown. If it was 6-6, he still wins the fight. They scored it 7-5 for Ward."
On if he would like to see a rematch:
"No, I don't think it was a good enough fight for a rematch. But that doesn't mean it won't happen."
