Weekend in pictures: Ward secures controversial win over Kovalev


Coral’s look at the results that caught our eye

Boxing dominated the headlines over the course of the weekend, with Andre Ward stopping rival Sergey Kovalev in the eighth round of their light heavyweight world title fight in Las Vegas.

The win came in controversial circumstances however, referee Tony Weeks failing to spot an obvious low-blow, and instead of punishing S.O.G for the illegal punch, he moved in to stop a helpless Kovalev. The head-to-head stats between the two fighters now stands at 2-0 in Ward’s favour.

There was also a big win for Scotland rugby team, while Jordan Pickford saved a penalty to grab England an opening day draw vs Sweden in the U21 European Championships. Flick through our best snaps of the weekend…..
