Andre Ward-Dan Goossen Will See Arbitration on Tuesday
By Robert Morales
A source close to the situation told BoxingScene.com on Monday that an arbitration hearing involving the California State Athletic Commission will be held Tuesday to discuss the status of super middleweight champion Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs) and his promotional contract with Goossen Tutor Promotions.
Rumors in the industry have suggested that Ward is trying to break free from his contract with Goossen Tutor, which is headed by longtime promoter Dan Goossen.
Ward, who had shoulder surgery in January, has not fought since stopping Chad Dawson in the 10th round of a title defense in Oakland, Calif.
I guess he's looking for big fights but unfortunately for him his style is boring for most people so he's a high risk very low reward type of fighter.Comment by MDPopescu on 06-24-2013
