Ward: "I just need to do me"

WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight world champion Andre Ward’s latest comments on Saturday’s grudge PPV rematch with Sergey Kovalev. “I always want to put on a great show for the fans,” said Ward. “I value and appreciate boxing fans, that’s first and foremost. Last fight, we definitely put on a show. That said, I can’t go into a fight thinking about its entertainment value. I just need to do me, execute the game plan and get my hand raised at the end of the fight.

“As far as being the best pound-for-pound fighter, I leave it to those who have a say. I know where I stand, I know what I’ve accomplished in this sport and how I stack up against today’s elite fighters. At the same time, I don’t have a vote, so I’ll leave it to those who do. If they have me at the top, I’m thankful. If not, I’m going to just keep working.”
