Two weeks out from the big rematch, HBO’s 24/7 revisits the first encounter between Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev. The fighters and trainers add their commentary, and we get some never before seen footage of the immediate locker room aftermath. Their camps also detail the strategies for victory on June 17. The fight will air on HBO pay-per-view.



All the buildup is done.

Now the real war begins. If you thought your anticipation for season seven of Game of Thrones couldn’t get any higher, this breathtaking first trailer should do the trick. In a sense, the trailer probably tells us how the entire season will unfold. First we have everyone beating their chests and proclaiming why they’re the rightful heir to the throne. Then something catastrophic happens (the Walkers coming south?) that finally brings everyone to their senses in that they need to unite to bring down this other-worldy force.

Will Cersei play along? Can Jon and Dany unravel their shared history? What part will our favorite young assassin Arya have?

Some many questions and the answers begin on July 16.
