In the main event, America's Andre Ward (32-0) retained his unbeaten record (as well as his WBA, IBF and WBO World Light Heavyweight belts) with an 8th round TKO victory in his rematch with Russia's Sergey Kovalev (30-2-1).
Ward won the first fight in November, coming back from a second round knockdown to get a controversial decision. "It didn't hurt like I could go down on the floor but it was a low blow", Kovalev said. "But when you are facing a great fighter you have to raise your game to the next level".
"Then I hurt him with a head shot and I just had to get the right shots in there to get him all the way and we did that". Weeks, meanwhile, was working hard to keep control as the two fighters clinched and hit each other behind the head, with Ward landing a low blow in the second round that doubled Kovalev over and caused Weeks to pause the bout. "I could have continued to fight". Why stop the fight?
'I couldn't believe it, I could win, ' he said. By the midpoint of the fight, it was another dogfight and both men had their moments. As a result Ward retained the unified light heavyweight championship. In round 7 Kovalev was showing small tell tale signs of fatigue by fighting with an open mouth.

Agnew, who had only previously lost to Sergey Kovalev and Samuel Clarkson, went into survival mode and somehow made it through the next two sessions only for the referee to spare him more punishment midway through the fourth.
That seems highly unlikely with there being zero incentive for Ward to take a third fight and particularly given the well-documented hostility between the two camps. At least Kovalev would finish with a flourish.
With all of the comments that have been made since the boxers met a year ago, Ward told TMZ that "He's culturally sound enough to know some of the things he's been doing are racially motivated". "I've never seen somebody knocked out on a low blow until tonight, and I hope I never have to see it again". I didn't feel that hurt.
But not really. "I thought he started fading at about the same point he did last time", Ward said.
"Low blow - and I felt this". And it's over. Tony Weeks stops the action as Ward is pummeling Kovalev. Rigondeaux's punch landed, and Flores dropped to the canvas where he was counted out.
