ANDRE WARD TO RETURN ON COTTO VS. CANELO CARD; BEGINS ROAD TO SERGEY KOVALEV SHOWDOWN

Sources close to the information have informed us that undefeated super middleweight king Andre Ward will return to the ring in the co-main event to the highly-anticipated November 21 showdown between WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto and former jr. middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Although an opponent has yet to be named, we're told that the leading candidate is super middleweight contender Rohan Murdock (18-1, 14 KOs). An official announcement could come as early as Monday.

Evidently, the fight on November 21 will be the first of a 3-fight deal that Ward has agreed to with HBO, which will culminate in a showdown with unified light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev some time later in 2016. Ward last fought back in June, scoring a 9th round TKO of Paul Smith. Although that fight was originally scheduled to take place at a catchweight of 172 pounds, Smith came in overweight, tipping the scales at 176.4, more than a pound over the light heavyweight limit.
