By Ryan Burton

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - This Saturday night, No. 2 Pound-for-Pound and WBO, WBA and IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev (30-0-1, 26 KOs) and No. 4 Pound-for-Pound and Two-Time World Champion Andre "S.O.G." Ward (30-0, 15 KOs) will collide in their "Pound for Pound" showdown at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Kovalev vs. Ward "Pound for Pound" will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. Tickets start at $55 and are available on axs.com and the T-Mobile Arena box office

Kathy Duva - CEO, Main Events - "Finally. There was a time when fighters didn't consider preserving their undefeated records to be paramount to engaging in actual competition. There was a time when undefeated fighters who were heading to the Hall of Fame actually sought out greater and greater challenges as their careers progressed. There was a time when fighters were courageous athletes and not simply cynical businessmen.

On Saturday, November 19th, two of the five best fighters in the whole world will fight each other. WBO, WBA and IBF Light Heavyweight Champion Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev, who is 30-0, will risk all three of his world titles against two-time world middleweight champion Andre "SOG" Ward, who is also 30-0.

The fight will take place in Las Vegas, sponsored by our friends at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, at the beautiful new T-Mobile Arena. Tickets are available now, they're starting at $155 right now because the box office has already sold out all of the $55 tickets we put on sale. You can only get these tickets at the T-Mobile box office and online through AXS.com. I'm happy to report that tickets at other prices are moving much faster than expected and currently there are very few left at the $755 price point and the $155 price point.

This will be live on HBO Pay-Per-View. The suggested retail price is going to be $54.95. It will be presented by Main Events, Roc Nation Sports, Krusher Promotions and Andre Ward Promotions. In addition to the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, the fight sponsors will be Rosneft and Corona."
