LAS VEGAS -- Andre Ward had just been awarded a unanimous decision victory against Sergey Kovalev to claim his three light heavyweight world title belts on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena when the topic turned to Wards ring future.At the end of his post-fight news conference Ward was asked if he would ever consider moving up to the heavyweight division, where it is rare for a light heavyweight to find success. All-time greats such as Roy Jones Jr., Michael Spinks and Bob Fitzsimmons won world titles in both weight classes, but they are the exception. Other greats such as Archie Moore and Bob Foster failed when they moved up.Boxings marquee division does interest Ward (31-0, 15 KOs), whose win over Kovalev (30-1-1, 26 KOs) was tinged in controversy because Ward, who got knocked down in the second round, was given winning scores of 114-113 on all three judges scorecards even though the majority of media had Kovalev winning a close fight.Ward, however, said any move up to heavyweight would have to be the right situation. He ruled out facing giants of the division such as world titleholders Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua, enormous men who would have huge height and weight advantages.Theres certain guys you dont mess with and those guys are too big, Ward said. I respect them, but you got to find the right opponent and the right situation. So maybe one day, maybe not, but not those two.Ward said if he made the move, he would instead look to follow in the footsteps of Jones, who was the undisputed light heavyweight world champion when he moved up to heavyweight for a shot at John Ruiz, a solid but unspectacular heavyweight who had a world title belt.Jones, who built himself into a rock-solid 193-pound fighter under the guidance of famed strength and conditioning coach Mackie Shilstone -- who also worked with Ward to prepare him for Kovalev -- easily outboxed the much slower and stationary 226-pound Ruiz to take his heavyweight belt in 2003 before returning to light heavyweight.Listen, Ive talked about this a lot and I know it sounds crazy. I know it does, Ward said. But I feel like I have a Roy Jones-type of situation in me before my career is over. And I have a great guy to do it with, Mackie Shilstone, but its got to be the right guy. Im not going to let my ego get in the way.Wards future is at light heavyweight for the time being, however. Kovalev exercised his right to an immediate rematch with Ward, so that will apparently be his next fight in the first half of 2017.HBO, which carried Kovalev-Ward on pay-per-view, will air a replay of the fight Saturday (10:35 p.m. ET/PT) along with live coverage of junior lightweight titleholder Vasyl Lomachenko (6-1, 4 KOs) making his first defense against fellow former featherweight titlist Nicholas Axe Man Walters (26-0-1, 21 KOs) at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Ugg Bambina Scontati . The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. Ugg Bailey Bow Grigio . A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. http://www.outletstivalisaldi.it/ . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. Stivali Ugg Scontatissimi . The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. Stivali Ugg Bambina . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. The Maryland Terrapins and Nebraska Cornhuskers have something in common, but its not something either team wants to remember.Two weeks ago, Ohio State took the Cornhuskers to the woodshed on national TV and won 62-3. Last week, it was the Terrapins turn to be shelled by the Buckeyes, and by the exact 62-3 score.Nebraska (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten), which was ranked No. 10 at the time and currently sit at No. 19, has had a week to recover and did so on the arm and legs of senior quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. in a 24-17 win over Minnesota in Lincoln, Neb.Maryland (5-5, 2-5) will have to put last weeks loss in the deep recesses of its collective memory pretty quickly when it heads to Lincoln on Saturday for a noon game at venerable Memorial Stadium, where the crazed-Husker Nation has sold out 353 straight games dating to when JFK was president (Nov. 2, 1962).Maryland has lost five of its last six games and the Terrapins need one more victory to become bowl eligible. With their final regular season game against lowly Rutgers next week, Maryland does have some room for error, but not much.Theres a lot to play for our guys in this season, first year Maryland head coach DJ Durkin said. Weve had some really good moments in this season. There have been some great things that have gone on. ... We just have to focus back in on what weve done to be successful and how weve done it. I think our guys will do that.The Cornhuskers also have had some really good moments in Mike Rileys second season in Lincoln. After going 6-7 in his first season, the Cornhuskers won their first seven games before losing to Wisconsin in overtime and then came the Buckeyes.And the one thing that Riley has learned its the Cornhuskers go as their senior quarterback goes. And on Saturday, Armstrong will play before the home crowd for the final time on Senior Day -- if hes healthy.For the second straight week, Armstrong is more than a little dinged up with an ankle and hamstring injuries.I think his ankle is OK, Reilly said Monday. If it was his ankle, we wouldnt have to worry about him in the next game. The hamstring is one of those mysterious things depending on really how it feels and then if indeed he could practice as we go through the week, how it lasts. Hes limping pretty heavily.Armstrong was named Big Ten Player of the Week for his gutty performance against the Golden Gophers. Coming off the Ohio State game where he was knocked out and sent to the hospital, his status against Minnesota was uncertain.But play he did, to the tune of 278 yards of total offense. He threw for 217 yards and two touchdowns and his 13-yard scamper with 7:17 remaining was the difference. With that last score, Armstrong moved into a tie with Eric Crouch for the most total touchdowns (90) in school history.Can I imagine him not playing? I dont want to, Riley said. Its Senior Day. All thosse parts.dddddddddddd Hes had a terrific career here at Nebraska. (But) part of this thing is biology, and the hamstring is a hard one.If Armstrong cant go, senior Ryker Fyfe will get the call. Fyfe has completed 7 of 24 passes this year for 93 yards.If Armstrong is able to play, he will have plenty of company on Senior Day as 27 others will be playing their final home game. Also being honored will be punter Sam Foltz, who was killed in a car crash before the season started. Foltzs family will be recognized in pregame activities.Without Armstrong, the Cornhuskers task becomes much more challenging.Maryland is dealing with its own quarterback question as senior starting quarterback Perry Hills status for this weekend unclear.Hills injured his right shoulder in a 59-3 loss to Michigan and then last week injured his left shoulder and went to the sideline in the first quarter.Credit to him and his toughness. Hes a fighter, Durkin said. There are a lot of guys that probably wouldnt have even been back in there at this point. Our offense runs a lot better when Perrys in there. When hes been healthy our offense has been pretty effective. Even last week, it didnt equate to points, but we moved the ball really well when he was in the game.The Terrapins running attack has drawn Rileys attention and while the Blackshirts defense has played well in every game but the Ohio State game, Marylands offense will test Nebraska.Ty Johnson leads Maryland with 656 yards on the ground in 77 carries, an 8.5 per carry average, and four touchdowns. Lorenzo Harrison is close behind with 633 yards on 88 carries (7.2 yards per carry) and five touchdowns.We are playing a Maryland team that runs a spread offense, a lot of zone read stuff. Theyre the third-ranked running team in the conference, Riley said, adding the defense is particularly wary of wide receivers Levern Jacobs and DJ Moore.Nebraska safety Kieron Williams said that the success the defense had against Minnesota hopefully will carry over to the Maryland game. The Golden Gophers, who had hopes of winning the Big Ten West Division, were held to 265 total yards of offense. Nebraska shut down the run game, holding Minnesota to 85 yards on 34 carries (2.5 per attempt).Were going to just try to look at Maryland now and see which ways they try to attack us. I think our coaches did a great job game-planning last week, which put us in the right positions to be able to make those plays and to hold them to that amount of rushing yards.Nebraska has a chance to finish the season undefeated at home for only the second time in the past 15 years. A victory against the Terrapins would give Nebraska its 50th nine-win season in school history and probably ensure a Jan. 1 bowl game.
