Andre Ward: We Should Have Olympic Style Drug Testing

By Chris LaBate

WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (24-0, 13KOs) is no stranger to Olympic style drug testing. He won Gold at the 2004 Summer Olympics in the light heavyweight division. Last Saturday in Carson, California, he retained his world title with a lopsided twelve round decision over former champion Arthur Abraham. Ward's next outing is the final bout of the Super Six Boxing Classic. He awaits the winner of the June 4th bout between Carl Froch and Glen Johnson.

Ward believes there should be Olympic style drug testing in every major fight. In his opinion, it would clear up any rumors or confusion about certain fighters possibly using performance enhancing substances.

"I think it is [necessary for boxing]. I would welcome it. I think it's great. That way there is no confusion about who's playing on an even playing field. This is a dangerous sport. You hear whispers about guys, what they're doing and not doing. You have to figure out who's going to pay for it, but once we get past that - I think it should be something that's implemented in every big fight," Ward said.
