Andre Ward Mulling Next Move, Doubts Stevenson Will Fight

IBF, WBA, WBO light heavyweight champion Andre Ward (32-0, 16 KOs) is still mulling over his next move for the future.

Two weeks ago, Ward stopped Sergey Kovalev (30-2, 26 KOs) in the eight round of their rematch at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The fight headlined an HBO Pay-Per-View event.

In their first fight last November at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Ward got off the floor in the second round to win a close twelve round decision over Kovalev to capture the three titles. All three judges had it scored 114-113 for Ward, but many observers felt the decision was controversial with Kovalev doing enough to win.

At the moment Ward is considering every possible path - including a mover to cruiserweight, heavyweight and even the possibility of retirement.

"I'm taking time out to consider my next move. Retirement? I'm considering everything," Ward told Daily Mail/

One possibility is a unification with WBC world champion Adonis Stevenson, who recently retained his title. But Ward doubts Stevenson will be willing to step in the ring - after watching the entire saga where a unification deal was never reached between Stevenson and Kovalev for several years. 

"Adonis has never seemed keen to fight Krusher. It looks like he prefers staying at home in Canada and fighting less dangerous opponents," Ward said.

As far as Kovalev's demand for a trilogy fight, Ward is not very interested in the contest. And he believes that most fans are not very interested in watching them fight for a third time. He also cautioned that Kovalev should do what he can to avoid suffering a third loss in a row.

"I've proved my point, again. And I'm not sure a third fight would have much appeal. Worst of all for his side, it would not be good for him. Another defeat would be bad business for them. A bad statistic for his record," Ward said.
