WBA: Andre Ward Will Have to Face Kessler-Magee Winner

By Miguel Rivera

According to the World Boxing Association, the WBA's "super champion" at super middleweight, Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs) will have to face the winner of the upcoming fight between Brian Magee (36-4-1, 25KOs) and Mikkel Kessler (45-2, 34KOs).

Magee and Kessler will fight on December 8th in Denmark for the "regular" WBA championship. Following the conclusion of that fight, the WBA will give Ward six months to face the winner.

Ward, who may return on January 26th against Kelly Pavlik, already holds an eleven round technical decision over Kessler from their 2009 fight in the first stage of the Super Six tournament.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson;12655404]Like who????[/QUOTE] Gennady Golovkin has said he will fight Ward at 168, Andre Dirrell would be another good name and maybe step up to 175 and get a belt there. He's already beat Kessler convincingly and Magee does not belong…
