Off to the Coliseum now – big fight. Oakland. Lets do it. Updates coming later tonight.
Thoughts: Despite his Olympic gold, when Andre started his career it was hard to find any news or articles about his fights, anywhere. When we started this fan site the only news about Andre Ward was about the musician who shares the same name. Today if you do a search online Andre is “everywhere”!

May 16, 2009
Andre (19-0) has defeated Edison Miranda (32-4) after 12 rounds with two of the judges voting 119-109 and the other judge giving a 116-112 in Andre’s favor. This was a hard fought fight for both men with Edison proving a formidable opponent.
In only the first round Andre took a head butt over his left eye that left blood dripping down for much of the first round until his “cut man” stopped the flow in time for the start of the second round. At one point Andre fell to the mat, not because of Miranda.
The crowd was heavily pro Andre and chants of SOG and Andre filled the Oracle arena at times. Ending the 12th round, Andre raised his fist in anticipation of the victory. With this fight Andre has now boxed 100+ rounds as a professional.
Several Oakland notable athletes were in attendance and happily filled the ring before the fight including former Oakland Athletic Ricky Henderson (dressed to the nines), Monta Ellis of the Warriors and JaMarcus Russell of the Raiders.

In early August Andre recently had fairly minor arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Look for Andre to resume training sometime towards the middle of October 2008. Perhaps a fight will be scheduled for late in 2008 but more realistically in early 2009. We wish him a speedy recovery!

Tonight Andre Ward dominated his very formidable opponent Rubin “Mr. Hollywood” Williams at Fight Night at the Tank in San Jose California. Rubin came into the fight with a record of 29-3 and left the fight 29-4. The late fight didn’t start until 10:40pm – crazy! A raucous crowd sensing another defeat, this time over a very formidable opponent was loudly cheering by the 4th round when Andre delivered a stiff uppercut. The fight was stopped in the 7th round so the referee could have the doctor check out out Rubin’s cut. At this point it was decided Andre was the winner – taking his sparkling record to 15-0!
