Goossen Wins CSAC Decision Over Andre Ward - Again

The California State Athletic Commission handed down the decision today in Andre Ward’s latest attempt to invalidate his promotional contract with Dan Goossen and Goossen Tutor Promotions. The decision by the arbitrator Andy Foster, the Commission’s Executive Director, was a clear victory for Goossen. Ward’s contract, was once again, ruled “valid” and extended to November 8, 2016.

In June 2013, in a prior arbitration initiated by Ward, the arbitrator also ruled Goossen’s contract “valid.” But, coming up with a new theory, Ward tried again in December 2013 to have the contract held invalid. Once more, Goossen prevailed. Responding to the latest decision, Dan Goossen said, “It’s now time to sit down with Andre and his advisors to put these legal disputes behind us and concentrate on getting Andre back to fighting consistently, inside the ring. Andre and I have had success together; and there’s no reason not to get back on track as a team to secure his status as the top fighter in the world behind Floyd Mayweather.”

Bert Fields, who argued the case for Goossen, said, “Of course I’m pleased with the decision. It was the right result both morally and legally. Ward’s a great fighter; but it was Goossen who helped build his professional career and put him in position to command the really big bucks.”

Something tells me this has to do with network issues. Andre Ward wants to fight on HBO, Dan Goossen has been on Showtime & ESPN recently. I think Ward should just say F-It and fight on ESPN if it becomes…
