Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has confirmed to that there are ongoing discussions to make an HBO televised fight between WBA/WBC super middleweight champion Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs) and former middleweight king Kelly Pavlik (40-2, 34KOs).

Arum, and Ward's promoter Dan Goossen, are discussing a potential date of February 23rd.

"That's accurate. We're talking with Dan. I think the likelihood of it happening is good. [Manager] Cameron [Dunkin] likes the fight. Kelly likes the fight," Arum told

One of the sticking points has already been agreed upon, says Arum - Ward is willing to do the fight, if it gets done, outside of his hometown of Oakland, California.

Froch took a bit of a breather by fighting Yusaf Mack. Why can't Ward take a breather by fighting Pavlik?

It's funny how Pavlik got cold feet on Carl Froch. Ward won't hurt him as much as Froch would've. Froch probably would've KO'd him. Now he'll just take a 12 rounds whoopin instead of getting KO'd. We just bashed the UFC for making Silva vs Bonnar and this is exactly the same thing! Pathetic reall...

Just think if Pavlik lands a bomb and KOs Ward, it will be total bedlam on here. WAR Pavlik!!!!!!!
