ANDRE WARD is aware of what’s at stake when he fights Sullivan Barrera in his light-heavyweight debut on March 26.

The plan is for Ward to face division leader Sergey Kovalev at the end of the year, provided they both stay unbeaten.

Ward, who cleared out the super-middleweight division before moving up, plans to have one more fight after facing Barrera, before he meets Kovalev.
