ONTARIO, CA -- Andre Ward & Edwin Rodriguez get up close and personal at the final press conference before they colllide for Ward's WBA & Ring Magazine Super Middleweight Title Saturday night in the fight dubbed "THE RETURN."

 "I'm locked in.  I take this sport real serious.  And he (Rodriguez) is going to find that out come Saturday night.  Everybody talks about how hungry he is as a challenger, but he is running into a hungry champion.  I am excited to get back.  I'm sharp.  I'm ready to be better than ever. "

"I respect Andre Ward.  I think he's a good fighter.  He has accomplished a lot in the sport of boxing, winning the tournament in the Super Six.  But, at the same time, I don't respect him either.  I'm ready to get in there and punch that guy in the face.  Come November 16th, I will do just that."

If there's anything to be watched in this fight it's just how much Ward improved his work with his right hand after surgery...
