Kovalev Storms Out of Press Conference
Sergey Kovalev took the podium at Thursday’s press conference to speak about Saturday’s rematch with Andre Ward, but the former champion didn’t stay long. After giving his statement, Kovalev and his team stormed out of the press conference before Ward’s camp spoke.
Ward and his team, as well as many media members and fans, took Kovalev’s early exit as a disrespectful gesture. Roc Nation president Michael Yormark labeled the move "classless".
