If you thought Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev had beef before, things have now escalated to another level. According to Ring Magazine, both fighters were supposed meet in a Las Vegas studio this past Sunday to film an episode of HBO’s Face Off hosted by Max Kellerman. Only problems was that ‘S.O.G’ was a no show. Ward stood up Kovalev and did not attend the set.

Main Events, Kovalev’s promoter, then hit social media and started throwing jabs at Ward.

Here’s what Main Event’s Kathy Duva had to say about the incident:

“HBO was set up to shoot a Face Off with Sergey and Ward today (Sunday). That is why we all came out to Las Vegas this weekend. It was the only date where we could sync everyone’s schedules. A great deal of money and time was expended to set this up.

And this morning, a few hours before the taping, HBO and I got an email from Roc Nation informing us that Andre had already left town. So unprofessional. And such disregard for the money wasted by both his promoter and Main Events. More important, an HBO crew was at the studio setting this up at 4:00 a.m. because Ward’s people insisted that we start as early as possible today,” Duva said.

Other sources claim that it was actually Kovalev who missed the first scheduled interview between the two fighters. Both men were supposed be interviewed during Saturday night’s HBO PPV between Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr and apparently Kovalev was not there. Meanwhile Ward did attend.

These little incidents continue to fuel the hatred between Kovalev and Ward. Luckily June 16th is not far away and the score will be settled once and for all.
