Andre Ward can’t retire. He’s got too much to prove

John Scully on why Andre Ward needs to stick around and take on Kovalev, Beterbiev and Stevenson

THE latest edition of Boxing News magazine is out today. Here an extract from the guest column:

I LOVE Andre Ward but I do not agree at all with his recent comments at all that he has nothing left to prove. If anything, this is the first time in his professional career since the Super Six where you could say he really does have something to prove, and to more than a few people. Many feel that he lost to Sergey Kovalev in November last year.

I’m sure Andre knows this and, as a fighter, I know for certain that this doesn’t sit well with him. Nobody wants to retire with big questions and doubts from the fans or from themselves.

The latest edition of Boxing News features in depth analysis on James DeGale vs Badou Jack, exclusive interviews with Michael Moorer, Milton McCrory and much more, more. Don’t miss it.
