FORMER light-heavyweight kingpin Andre Ward announced his retirement last year, after he had defended his three world titles against Sergey Kovalev earlier in 2017.

But the American star remains in prime condition. Even though he insists he is training just to train, rather than for any specific endeavor, Ward admits he is always ready.

“When I retired, it was sincere,” Andre told Boxing News. “I’m working on staying fit, building my body up. It’s in my nature to stay ready, man, that’s just who I am.”
