Fortune Telling Elvis Pound4Pound Pick

By William Trillo

I don’t know how long it’s been since I felt the need to inquire with “The King” about a result for an upcoming fight, but it was on my way to Las Vegas that I pulled over once again to find out who Elvis thought would come out on top, Kovalev or Ward? The fight is a toss up and even though oddsmakers have put Ward as a 2 to 1 favorite it’s really difficult to say who will come out on top.

What Elvis had to say was plain and simple, “Remember this, hard work always pays off in the long run!”

Now that we have this clue the question to answer is this: How do YOU define hard work?

Do you define hard work as coming to a foreign country with no promoter and scratching and clawing your way to the top over your 30 fight career?

Do you think having your 30 fight career fed to you with a silver spoon is a difficult task?

Do you think going out and earning all those belts that are on the line tonight without the help of any made up tournament is difficult or are you more impressed with a guy who took first place in a round robin tournament that was plagued with indiscrepancies since the day it was conceived?

Do you think it’s hard to leave your homeland and fight across the United States and make stops in Canada as well as the United Kingdom and all points in between with only two fights in your home country?.

Or does it seem more difficult to fight the majority of your fights in your own backyard or at the very least in your own country with only one stop outside of your USA home soil?

It seems to me if you are honest the answer to these questions are simple and it’s easy to see who it is that Fortune Telling Elvis thinks will come out on top tonight.

    If their most recent fight is anything to go by, this should be an absolute stinker. It also suggests both guys are past their peak. I hope I’m wrong. I still think Ward will jab and run while Kovalev punches air for 12 rounds.
