Andre Ward Disputes Khan's Claim of Taking His Shots

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBA super middleweight king Andre Ward has denied a recent statement that was made by former champion Amir Khan, who claimed he had sparred with Ward in the past and claimed his chin stood up to the bigger man's punches.

Khan took to the social networks on Thursday, to explain why he's more than suitable to secure a lucrative fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

During his explanation, Khan went on the offense in response to the critics who continuously say he has a suspect chin. He claimed Alfredo Angulo, who fights at 154, and Ward, who fights at 168, have nailed him with heavy punches during sparring sessions and he didn't go down. 

Khan, Ward and Angulo are all trained by Virgil Hunter. 

"Angulo and Ward have hit me with big shots and I've stood in front and not gone down. They carry 25 lbs over me and are big punchers. This is because I'm at my natural weight [of 147]. It's in the fans' hands who they want to see me fight. If it's not me [against Mayweather] then good luck to whoever it is."

It didn't take long before numerous fans were asking Ward to provide some juicy details on his sparring sessions with Khan. But there were no details to give, because Ward denied that any sparring sessions had ever taken place with Khan.

"Me and Khan never sparred. Yea, didn't read what he said, but we've never been in the ring together," Ward stated.

I don't trust a guy who goes under SOG and claims he talks to God every other sentence. I know that type of crap gets sympathy with the brain watched and over patriotic in this country but it simply scares…

[QUOTE=thuggery;14216666]I think Ward's upset that the word got out...it's a documented fact that Ward is feather fisted so I'm not sure why he's so upset at Khan taking them[/QUOTE] Ward knocked out the LHW champ, I guess some people just…
