What happened the first time the two boxers met?
The first fight was intriguing as it was divisive.
Andre Ward was knocked down in the second round, but came back to win the fight on all three judges' scorecards.
But it was by the slimmest of margins - 114-113 on all three.
Most media in the T-Mobile Center had Kovalev winning the fight, with the Russian shellshocked when he found out he had lost.
Who does SunSport think will win the rematch?
Andre Ward has the superior boxing skills, but hasn't faced anyone with the power the heavy-handed Russian brings to the table.
But for us, Kovalev's chance was in that second round of the first fight.
Ward will study his mistakes meticulously, and can score another points win.
Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev primed for grudge rematch
When America and Russia went head to head for boxing’s pound-for-pound crown through two undefeated world champion light heavyweights Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev last November, the two boxers showed grudging respect for each other. Each believed he was the kryptonite to the other.
It was Kovalev, the puncher, against Ward, the master boxer. On the line were the World Boxing Organisation, World Boxing Association, International Boxing Federation and Ring Magazine titles. After the controversial 12-round fight which went the way of Ward – the decision disputed by many – a deep rancour has grown on both sides. Now they go again in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KOs), known as ‘The Krusher’, felled Ward in the second round of the first fight. But from round six, he was edged out by the canny American – on all three judges cards – as Ward claimed a famous win.
Ward (31-0, 16 KOs), a gold medallist at the 2004 Athens Olympics, has always found a way through adversity, including fighting Carl Froch. He is so crafty, his ability to change the pattern of a fight and so nullify opponents is judged virtually peerless today.
Kovalev, much more an old school, toe-to-toe merchant, thought he had won. It mattered not a jot. The judges made Ward the winner. But the finger-pointing afterwards, and the rancour and accusations of bias from the first fight, to the claim and counter-claim in the build-up to this second meeting in the Mojave desert, has been off the charts. Social media campaigns have helped light a fire under the promotion.
