Andre S.O.G. Ward was in attendance at the Brandon Rios-Mike Alvarado II bout and was in amazement at the fight both combatants produced. Ward recently underwent shoulder surgery but has been back in the gym for a few weeks now and is looking to get back in the ring soon.

When Ward spoke to BoxingScene he informed that while hes not chasing any opponent in particular, one name he would like to face next is Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Im in a position where I dont feel like I got to chase anybody. Im open to any opportunity thats the right opportunity. We want the biggest fights and we want a PPV type of situation and I think were right around the corner from getting that. But I will throw one name out: [Julio Cesar] Chavez Jr Ward revealed to BoxingScene.

Thats the fight that fans want to see. I dont necessarily think they want to see him and [Sergio] Martinez again. It was a great 12th round but its pretty much going to be the same fight. [Chavez is] busting out of 160, hes coming to 168. If he comes to 168 then I think we should see each other. I think thats a mega, mega fight the fans will want to see.

Ward has dominated the Super Middleweight division for some time now and some feel he may have run out of opponents to face given hes beaten most of them already. The Chavez fight would give Ward a new opponent and the big name hes been looking for to cross over to the mainstream market.

Even though Chavez is coming off a loss against Sergio Martinez, Ward still believes it would not be an easy fight for him.

I think I get the tag as being a boxer and being cute but I fight. Im very physical inside. I dont run. But Im going to tell you this: Chavez Jr is not an easy fight. A lot of people say [its easy] but thats not an easy fight. Hes a big kid, hes a strong kid and he can punch. And just like tonights [fight], hes doing a lot of things on the inside that a lot of people dont give him credit for. Chavez Jr is not an easy fight for me said the Oakland native.

Ward is already back in the gym and says he feels great so far. He will be looking to secure an opponent soon.
