Boxing News & Notes for 6/26: Harrison, Green return, fight announcements, and Ward-Smith aftermath

Ward ponders weight following victory over Smith. Andre Ward is unsure of which weight class he will compete following Saturday’s ninth-round TKO win over Paul Smith. The Smith bout was fought at a catchweight limit of 172 lbs.; three shy of the full Light Heavyweight limit while hovering four above Super Middleweight, where Ward plowed through the very best the weight class could offer including Mikkel Kessler, Carl Froch, Sakio Bika, and Arthur Abraham over a four year span. “Just to be clear, I have not made an official decision about the weight class I’ll be fighting in. Still resting, will speak to my team soon,” Ward stated via his official Twitter account.

BOB ARUM:  Thank you.  Everyone is looking forward to what should be a great, great fight.  The previous two fights were classics and this one will probably top them all.  I am really looking forward to Saturday night in Denver and now I would like to put the fighters on.  These are two gladiators.  These are two guys that make the sport of boxing proud the way they perform in the ring.

BRANDON RIOS:  How is it going everybody?  I hope everyone had a good Christmas and a great New Years.  We are ready for Saturday to give the fans a great show.
