 "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. "

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...
