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.

Adrien Broner vs Marcos Maidana: undercard fighters media workout quotes

Keith Thurman, WBA Interim Welterweight World Champion:

“I am truly blessed to be where I am in the world of boxing. This is a dream come true.  I have been boxing since the age of seven and in the amateur ranks all I ever wanted to be was a world champion.

“I am happy to be here.  I am happy to receive the fan base and the recognition that I deserve and being on the networks. I fight hard.  I am hungry all of the time and even though I have a belt, I’m still hungry.  There are plenty other belts out there and you better believe that my fight against Soto Karass is going to be one heck of a fight.  I am also looking forward to 2014.”
