ANDRE WARD, widely considered to be one of the best fighters on the planet, has a goal of becoming an “all-time great” as he prepares to fight Alexander Brand on Saturday night (August 6).

The unbeaten American must beat Brand in order to secure a monster fight with light-heavyweight supremo Sergey Kovalev on November 19 in Las Vegas.

However that sizeable carrot is not enough to distract Ward from the task at hand, or his long-term goals of cementing a legacy.
