    I haven't watched it myself, so was looking to see your take on it. From what I understand from those who have watched it, people ruled in favor of Kovalev because he knocked Ward down in the second and was landing more power shots. Those on Ward's side say he was just as active, especially around the body. And so that's why Ward won by unanimous decision, but those scores were close.

    Heard Andre Ward won by TKO referee stoppage in his rematch with Sergei Kovalev. His trainer apparently trained him for the KO... something that is rare; last time was vs Chad Dawson (who he KO'd). Kovalev's camp is protesting, though, because of alleged "illegal" blows below the belt that weren't called. Anyone catch Oakland's S.O.G in action?

    I did not. I wanted to but I was out on Saturday. I haven't gotten to watch him fight much, but i enjoyed the connection this year with the Warriors. Its been cool thing to see the Oakland connection reach across multiple sports.
