Ward, who won a light heavyweight Gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics, hasn't lost a fight since he was a 12-year-old amateur. With the win, Ward moves on to the Super Six finals to face the winner of the June 6 semi-final bout between Carl Froch and Glen Johnson. His impressive performance also vaulted him past another undefeated 27-year-old American boxer, Timothy Bradley, on the About.com Pound-for-Pound Top Fifty.
Abraham said he intends to stay at 168 but, after losing three straight in the Super Six tournament, would be better served dropping back down to middleweight.
On the undercard, Chris Arreola stopped Nagy Aguilera in the third round of a scheduled ten rounder. More impressive than the victory was the fact that Arreola actually seemed to make an effort to get in condition for the fight. He weighed in at 234 pounds, his lightest weight since 2007 and the fourth lightest of his 33-bout professional career. Given the complete lack of depth in the heavyweight division, the 30-year-old Arreola still has a great opportunity to revive his career and get another shot at a title.
