By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (27-0, 14KOs) is ready to face Gennady Golovkin (28-0, 25KOs), the WBA/IBO champion at 160-pounds, at any time. But makes it clear that Golovkin and his team are in no hurry to step in the ring with him. Golovkin returns to action this coming Saturday night in Monaco, against Osumanu Adama (22-3, 16KOs).

Ward takes issue with Golovkin's promoted reputation of "willing to fight anyone" - when his team is not willing to match them any time soon. Additionally, Ward is confused by recent quote where Golovkin's promoter claimed their fighter was the bigger star.

"I don't really know how to feel about that fight. From a business standpoint of course [we can do it]. If he continues to win, and if I continue to win - a year from now it's a bigger fight. I have no problem with that, but what I do have a problem with is when you build your reputation as being this fearless guy from 160 to 175 - but then backtrack and say 'oh it's about the business and we're going to wait.' I just don't understand that, it doesn't add up. And his promoter saying that he's a bigger star...I'm just scratching my head about that stuff. It is what it is. I'm not chasing anybody. I think I've earned the right to fight the biggest and the best fights and that's what we're in the process of doing," Ward told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Bushbaby]I was digging it..................until you mentioned Kessler.[/QUOTE] Well Hunter mentioned Kessler, if a rematch happens I don't think Mikkel is the one who should travel. I must admit, I wouldn't be so keen on that rematch either. Would rather see Ward against someone new li...

[QUOTE=Weebler I]From listening to him, I don't think he ever wanted GGG, he was just constantly pestered about him by journalists and didn't want to stand accused of ducking. I think you're being a little harsh on Ward. We'd all like to see him fight Adonis/Kovalev but why should a fighter h...

[QUOTE=Bushbaby]I'm disgusted by this guy right now. And I was one of his biggest fans on here. He wanted Chavez/Froch and GGG. But I want Kovalev or Adonis. Unlike certain other type of fans, if my guy isn't acting like a pfp elite, then I don't hand out passes. Ward a pfp fighter has no busine...

Too early for this. Let GGG accomplish something at 160 first and catch him on the move up.
