Andre Ward clinches victory but not imagination

On Saturday night, for the 29th time in his professional career, Andre Ward took home a victory. Boxing fans got their first look at Ward as a light heavyweight, and while they saw him pitch a near shutout against a hungry undefeated Sullivan Barrera, the luster that usually follows Ward just wasn’t there. Even though Ward was facing a heavy underdog, boxing fans were excited...

Andre Ward Vs Sullivan Barrera Results: Ward Wins, Not Quite Up To His Usual Standard

As “performance by any boxer in the world” goes, Andre Ward was brilliant Saturday night on HBO in his official move up to light heavyweight against Sullivan Barrera. As a performance by Ward — and in particular, a performance by Ward that convinced anyone of his chances against Sergey Kovalev in a fight that sounded perfect on paper — it wasn’t up to snuff. Ward won almost...

Quick Jabs: Sup Wit David Haye; Andre Ward; More

It’s a new year(ish), so what better time to bring back Quick Jabs, everybody’s formerly favorite round-up of various boxing news(es)? We start with the pic above of the Friars’ Club, because Lennox Lewis is about to get roasted.

What's next for Andre Ward?

By Juan Martinez The biggest question for Andre “SOG” (Son of God) Ward heading into his fight on June 20 against Paul “Real Gone Kid” Smith from England was whether or not he would have any ring rust.

If Andre Ward could’ve done anything to make anyone glad he was back after nearly two years in the ring, it would’ve looked an awful lot like Saturday night on BET.

Ward’s extended absence and a fighting style that doesn’t enthuse some...
