Video: Sugar Ray Leonard on Andre Ward

New, comments

Recently, Sugar Ray Leonard spoke about super middleweight star Andre Ward. Ward faces Arthur Abraham on Saturday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, live on Showtime, paired with the Pacquiao vs Mosley replay. The broadcast starts at 10pm EDT.

Leonard talks about the importance of Andre Ward's 2004 Olympic gold medal. Ward is really the last American Olympic star, and of course Leonard knows a bit about coming from the Olympic team. Leonard was a gold medalist in 1976.

Leonard: "Here's a guy who will be a superstar soon. I think that the more he wins, in the fashion that he wins, is symbolic of what the Olympics should mean. ... But Andre Ward, without question, is a winner."

Ward (on comparisons to Leonard): "That's good stuff, man. I appreciate it. I've got a lot of work to do to be in that company. I've got a lot of work to do."
