FORMER super-middleweight and light-heavyweight king Andre Ward is a busy man at the moment – despite last year’s retirement from boxing – but has heard all about Tony Bellew’s recent exploits and wants to let his Creed co-star know he’s receptive to the idea of a fight at some point in the future.

It just might take a little while, that’s all. Ward, 32-0 (16), has just wrapped up filming on Creed 2 and is now about to start filming on the set of The Contender, a show he will host.

He has, however, revealed he’s been waiting for a call from Bellew’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, ever since Hearn’s former super-middleweight champion Carl Froch avenged his defeat to Mikkel Kessler all the way back in 2013.
