Andre Ward: I Would Consider Fighting Groves Next
By Mike Coppinger
Andre Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) returned from a 14-month layoff to easily defeat Edwin Rodriguez in November.
Rodriguez didn't present much of a challenge, but Ward is looking at a tougher opponent for his next bout.
"I would consider fighting George Groves next," Ward, 29, Tweeted from his verified account Thursday. "He showed a lot his last fight. He's a good fighter and deserves a shot."
Groves, 25, lost via controversial stoppage to Carl Froch in November. Groves (19-1, 15 KOs) has beat the drums for a rematch with his fellow Brit, but perhaps he will turn his attention to the lineal super middleweight champion.

I would love this! Groves has more chance at beating Ward then Froch has thats for sure (I am still picking Ward though lol). Froch is too slow for Ward he would lose 10 times out of 10.Post a Comment - View More User Comments (153)
