Default Something that's being overlooked in the Kovalev/Ward fight.

In November of 2013, Kovalev, then a budding star squared off against former amateur rival Ismael Sillahk. What most may remember from that fight was a brutal second round ko, followed by an unusual celebration and post fight interview. Which shouldn't be glossed over,however is what took place during the first round. Sillahk, who for all of his shortcomings in the chin department, was thought to be the better technician of the two, was handily out jabbed and overall outboxed by the supposed"puncher" in the first stanza. I know it's a small sample size,but he followed that feat up with a complete wipe out of the aging great Hopkins, who old or not still has enough wit to cause anybody problems. Kovalev could potentially be a rare (Thomas )Hearns like fighter, who not only packs a potent punch, but also has next level technical prowess should he need it.

So stopping the dreaded and previously KO'd Ismail Silka makes him a rare Thomas Hearns like talent at 32 y/o.

Go soak your head.

If you had read my post in its entirety, you would know that I placed very little value on the ko of Silahk.

Without power Kovalev is nothing.

That's not what you did at all.

If you put little value on that meaningless KO over a previously KO'd fighter...you wouldn't have mention it in the first place.

Then you tried to compare that trash to Hearns...lol

Why do people say things like this? Yes, his power is big component to his overall skill set, but so is Ward's speed.

Reading comprehensive is definitely not your strong suit. I went out of my way to demystify the ko by pointing out Sillahk's chin being shaky.

Ward can win without power.
Kovalev cannot.

Just look how he squares himself up....
The way he drops his hands to his waist after he punches.

The way he stands around after he fires like he's posing for the cover of overrated boxer magazine.
