The 2004 Olympic light heavyweight gold medalist and former Wbc and Wba super Mw champion, Andre Ward entered this fight with a perfect boxing record of 27-0-0 (14 knockouts) but he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since November 16, 2013 when he defeated Edwin Rodriguez (=Ward vs Rodriguez).
His opponent, Paul Smith, has an official record of 35-5-0 (20 knockouts) and he entered as the No.31 super middleweight in the world but he comes off two consecutive defeats, both against Arthur Abraham (=Abraham vs Smith I and Abraham vs Smith II). Also Ward faced Abraham in his professional career winning in twelve rounds (May 14, 2011 Ward vs Abraham). ‘SOG’ Ward vs Smith is the main event of the evening. Watch the video and rate this fight!

recorded – haven’t watched just yet.
BUT everyone talks about GGG moving up to fight Ward. Ward made this fight 174. So why doesn’t anyone bitch about him not fighting one of the top LHWs?
Go take Stevens title – then fight Kovalev in a unification bout.
I cant see how that wouldn’t be HUGE.
Probably because he’s been off for so long.
I agree with Victor Rafael. This was a just comeback fight for Ward (Smith didn’t do much with his turtle strategy). Ward is an excellent fighter at 168lbs or 175lbs and he may now chose to fight anyone he wants to but I would rather like to see him fight against guys of his size instead of GGG.
smith was ward`s punching bag during this fight he barely landed some heavy shots. i would like to see ward vs jean pascal or sakio bika it would be a great fight. and if he wins one them, they should make him fight kovalev or stevenson
