Ward doubts Wilder, cool unification in the top division


The legendary Andre Ward is not 100% sure that this week in Brooklyn (New York, USA), American heavyweight (over 90.7 kg) Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) will not screw up in a fight with age-old Robert Helenius (31-3, 20 KOs) from Finland.

“The only question is, will two tough fights in a row and early defeats from Tyson Fury affect his performance? I mean both psychological and physical consequences. We’ve seen weirder things in boxing as well. For example, when a fighter, after one knockdown, immediately completely lost the ability to take a hit. But mentally he will be the same. Of that I have no doubt.”
He speaks Ward.

A potentially chic unification confrontation (both fighters and coaches) is being prepared in the second flyweight (up to 52.2 kg): on the eve of the new year in Japan, local WBO champion Kazuto Ioka (29-2, 15 KOs) plans to fight with an American WBA belt holder Joshua Franco (18-1-2, 8 KOs).

The fighters are trained by top Mentor of the Year candidates Ismael Salas (Ioka) and Robert Garcia (Franco). What if this confrontation will be decisive for the coaches?

The ex-absolute super lightweight champion (up to 63.5 kg) still-pound Briton Josh Taylor (19-0, 13 KOs) changed his mentor again – first he left Shane McGuigan for Ben Davison, and now he has replaced him. The new coach of the Scot is not the most famous specialist Joe McNally.
