By Chris Robinson
There were no shortage of boxing luminaries sitting ringside during Mike Alvarado’s impressive rematch victory over Brandon Rios on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada.
During some down time, I was able to have a few words with one of the sport’s finest talents, WBA and WBC super middleweight titlist Andre Ward.
Regarded as one of the sport’s classier champions, Ward touched on a variety of topics during our conversation and spoke with great insight and interest along the way.
Read below for Ward’s thoughts on overcoming a recent shoulder injury that has sidelined him briefly, his feelings on Adrien Broner’s challenge of Paulie Malignaggi’s WBA welterweight title, his take on the recent rift between HBO and Golden Boy Promotions, his response to the recent comments Floyd Mayweather made about his career, and much more.
