Super middleweight champion Andre Ward has incurred a shoulder injury in training and will likely be forced to postpone his Jan. 26 defense against Kelly Pavlik at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, sources have confirmed with BoxingScene.com/CSNBayArea.com.

Ward (26-0, 14 KOs) was slated to headline an HBO World Championship Boxing main event against Pavlik (40-2, 34 KOs), the former undisputed middleweight champion.  Heavyweights Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne were scheduled to fight in a title eliminator in the televised co-feature.

There has been no word yet regarding the status of the rest of the card, but Ward-Pavlik will likely be headed for either late February or early March.

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated initially reported the story on Wednesday night.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson]Look for Ward to vacate after that so he doesn't have to travel to Denmark to defend. [/QUOTE] He doesn't have to travel to Denmark at all actually, he can defend the belt just as well in the US. But let's see what the extent of SOG's injury is and how that will affec...

Ward probably has a bigger fight lined up

something smells here. Either Pavlik is back drinking. Or Ward has a Froch fight lined up soon.

I think the fight won't get rescheduled.

yeah, i don't think that many people wanted to see this fight. hopefully ward can take some time off and perhaps get a fight going with a top SMW. i'd love to see pavlik/chavez happen in 2013. have pavlik fight some decent opponent for now and save him for chavez whenever he gets off suspension (...
