Ward v Kovalev: Claim Enhanced Odds on Either Fighter with 888Sport

Andre Ward vs. Sergey Kovalev

This is boxing’s most highly anticipated re-match for many years and when Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev step into the ring in the early hours of Sunday morning, those at ringside will be able to feel the tension and animosity between these two fighters.

It’s going to be a big betting attraction for boxing fans too and, if you are looking to place a bet yourself, there is a great new customer deal from 888Sport which can give you either 6/1 on Ward or 9/1 on Kovalev and whichever option you choose, that represents a huge lift from the standard markets.


The initial bout between these two took place last November in Las Vegas and it ended with a unanimous decision that saw Andre Ward claim the WBA, IBF and WBO light heavyweight titles. At the time, the two men were undefeated and Ward entered the fight as the marginal underdog, ranked number four as opposed to Kovalev’s ranking of two.

That defeat was the only blemish on the Russian’s record which includes 30 wins while American Ward now has the same amount of victories but has yet to suffer a loss. As a result, Ward now goes into this fight as favourite at a top price of 11/14 with MarathonBet while Kovalev is the outside option at a best of 4/3 – also with MarathonBet.

Punters may already see some value in those standard markets but the prices under this Promo with 888Sport eclipse them quite comfortably so what do you need to do in order to claim them?
