Awaiting Result of Andre Ward-Dan Goossen Arbitration

By Robert Morales

There has been no word on the result of Tuesday's arbitration hearing with the California State Athletic Commission regarding the situation with super middleweight champion Andre Ward and his promoter, Dan Goossen of Goossen Tutor Promotions.

Ward, the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter on most lists, claimed in a statement released this week that Goossen was preventing him from "defending my title and pursuing my profession" by refusing to show up for a meeting with HBO regarding a potential September date for his next fight.

Ward's manager, James Prince, said there are "multiple reasons to terminate the promotional agreement with Goossen and we are following proper procedures with our sole objective of always doing what is in the best interests of Andre Ward."

Goossen could not be reached for comment. But a source close to the situation who wished to remain anonymous said he is hopeful a decision will soon be forthcoming.

Ward has not fought since stopping Chad Dawson in the 10th round last September in Oakland, Ward's hometown. Ward had subsequent shoulder surgery.

The article reads that Ward stopped boxing since the Dawson fight. My opinion is that Ward didn't start boxing yet. He's an outstanding athlete, he's highly intelligent, but he is boxing like the 48 years old B-Hop. But B-Hop in…

Maybe Ward and Goosen is solving their dispute behind close doors.
