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!
Boxing can be pretty when your guy is in the groove, as is Andre. Fellow Olympian (2000 Olympics, Domican team) was no match for Andre’s power. The Cayman Islands were scene to yet another TKO by Andre Ward, his 6th in a row and 11th overall – raising his record to a sterling undefeated 16-0. This time it came in the 8th round quickly dropping Ravelo face down to the canvas. He never recovered and the fight was stopped. The win clinched the NABO title for Andre (North American Boxing Organization). Stay posted for upcoming fights!
Andre scheduled to fight Jerson Ravelo (18-2) at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex in Georgetown, the Cayman Islands on June 20, 2008.

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!
