The 28-year-old Ward (24-1-2, 11 KO) picked up his fifth straight win with this one, outclassing Amparan (16-2, 14 KO) quite easily. The 23-year-old Mexican was taking a pretty big step up in competition here, and despite a game effort, he did not pass the test.

Bad Left Hook also scored the fight 100-88 for Ward, who scored body shot knockdowns in the seventh and 10th rounds.

After the fight, Ward made a challenge to the WBA’s secondary “world” titleholder at 130 pounds, Rene Alvarado.

“Rene Alvarado, if you’re watching this, I want you next,” Ward said simply.

“We want it badly,” promoter Eddie Hearn said of the potential fight. “It was a brilliant performance. I call Golden Boy all the time about Rene Alvarado. I really feel (Ward) deserves it. I’d love to see him get a shot at a world title this year.”
