Andre Ward Looks Forward To BWAA Awards Banquet
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Andre Ward has won an Olympic Gold medal, professional world titles, and the Showtime Super Six Super middleweight tournament. For the unbeaten Ward the accomplishments keep growing. His latest milestone will come at the Copacabana in New York City this June 6, when he receives the 2011 Sugar Ray Robinson "Fighter of the Year" award from the Boxing Writers Association of America.

What makes this honor extra special for Ward is that his mentor and longtime trainer Virgil Hunter, will be honored that same evening as the "Trainer of the Year."

"I want to thank God for giving me the strength to put in the work year after year to get to this point," Ward, 28, of Oakland, Calif., said. "I also want to thank my manager James Prince, my promoters Antonio Leonard and Dan Goossen, everyone who is a part of team Ward, as well as all my family, friends, and loyal fans who have been behind me all these years. This award is just as much for them as it is for me.

"Even in the midst of receiving this tremendous award, Team Ward is not going to let up. In 2012 and beyond we're going to push forward, and God-willing we can be considered for these awards every year. It's easy to getcomfortable at a time like this, but I can assure everybody that I'm going to continue to put in the work to be the best that I can be. I'm going to stay humble, keep God first and, with that, the best is yet to come."

[QUOTE=bibleofboxing]he definitely won't lose to Dawson as I am sure that you know. Why Dawson thinks he can do it at 168 is beyond my comprehension.[/QUOTE] I think Ward will win a very close, ugly boxing match. But saying that Dawson definitely will not win is going overboard. He can definit...

[QUOTE=QUELOQUE]Froch is the leading candidate, but Chad could definitely overtake him if he were to win against Ward. Ward and his team missed out on a great opportunity by not facing Bute right after the Super 6. Bradley's the dark horse for FOTY...[/QUOTE] Bradley is a longer way ahea...

[QUOTE=-Kev-]It's too bad Andre Ward will probably only fight once this year. If he fought twice against two top SMW's/LHW he would win another FOTY award since nobody else is really doing anything of note this year. Now that award can very well be Carl Froch's if he beats Kessler. Or it could be...
