Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs) defended his super middleweight title on Sept. 8 with a 10th-round TKO of Chad Dawson. His next opponent is likely to be former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (40-2, 34KOs). Dan Goossen confirmed he is still working on putting that fight together for Ward's next defense.
"We're trying to finalize a bout with Kelly Pavlik," Goossen said to BoxingScene.com. "One of the key dates on HBO and all of TV is Jan. 26. I know there has been some mention of February, but that's the time period we're looking at right now.
"We don't have a site done yet. I'm going to get Pavlik finalized and I believe that we will. But until it's done, well, you know the business."
