Photos: Andre Ward Receives New WBC Belt in Mexico

Report and photos by Pepe Rodriguez/WBC

Andre “Son of God” Ward, received today from WBC President, Jose Sulaiman, the green andgold championship belt that accredits him as the new WBC Super Middleweight World Champion, which won last Saturday December 17 within the SHOWTIME Super Six World Boxing Classic Final, that came to a dramatic conclusion at the historic Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Ward (25-0, 13 KOs), from Oakland, California, USA, was crowned as the new champion, after having defeated the champion Carl Froch (28-2, 20 KOs) over twelve one-sided rounds, being more faster, busier and landed cleaner, harder punches and did not allow Froch to get anything going.

A desperate Froch came on late, but the result was never in doubt as Ward prevailed by surprisingly close scores of 115-113, 115-113, 118-110.

Andre Ward is a good fighter.

What is SOG doing with the devil himself? Ward is a man of strong character and moral fiber yet he pays homage to the thief Sulaimon. Ward has always loved the belts and sanctioning bodies, I suppose he needs them…
