The fight, taking place in Ward’s hometown of Oakland, California at the Oracle Arena comes hot on the heels of rival Sergey Kovalev’s unanimous points victory over Isaac Chilemba, which was also screened exclusively live on ‘The Channel of Champions’.

Should Ward overcome the tricky and tough Brand then he is all set to take on Russian assassin Kovalev later this year in a super-fight for the WBA, IBF and WBO light-heavyweight world titles.

However, to look past Brand would be foolish, with the Bogota banger having an impressive record of 25 wins, 19 by knockout, and just a sole split decision loss to world champion Badou Jack.

Former world champion Ward is recognised as one of the finest boxers of his generation and the undefeated star will be looking to make his mark on the 175-pound division after dominating at super-middleweight.

I guess Boxing scene really thinks it's readers are very dumb, because Alexander Brand isn't in any of these photos.

Literally no people there. That pictures with the chairs is depressing. ROC NS is the worst promoter in the game. game. I feel sorry for Ward. He's fighting in his hometown but zero ****s are given. They even sell tickets…
