Though the World Boxing Council has not recently allowed for its world title to be held alongside other sanctioning bodies’ belts, super middleweight champion Andre Ward has been the owner of both the WBC and World Boxing Association titles for nearly nine months now.

Ward captured the WBA belt in November 2009 when he beat Mikkel Kessler by technical decision in his first fight of the “Super Six” super middleweight tournament. He won the WBC belt in December when he topped Carl Froch in the tournament’s finale. (Ward defended both titles this past Saturday, stopping Chad Dawson.)

The WBC will be looking into this, according to Jose Sulaiman, the sanctioning body’s president, speaking via email to BoxingScene.com on Monday.

“As I am not informed about champion Ward's position, even after his recent great victory, we are already investigating for a decision to be taken within a time in accordance with the situation, as once again, I am not well informed,” Sulaiman wrote.

Sounds like Suliman and his peeps didn't appreciate the idea of Dre wanting to destroy his Godson on Cino De Mayo weekend next year. I guess they figure they'll pull the same ish they did to Martinez, then duck Dre at 168 claiming JR isnt ready all the while lining up JRs list of defenses against...
