Andre Ward has been out of the fight business for quite some time, due to a number of issues, but has finally secured a fight against Paul Smith, who is a mediocre boxer at best, but is the right kind of fighter for Andre Ward to step into the ring with, considering; he’s been out of boxing for so long. Paul Smith will have to pull something special out of the bag, if he hopes to get anything out of this fight, with that said; we shouldn’t rule him out, since Andre is definitely a little rusty.
After some time in hiatus, Andre Ward steps up against Paul Smith.
This fight has a very relaxed start to it with Andre Ward immediately leading the fight. Paul Smith looks very cautious as he’s well aware of the pedigree of Andre Ward, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. Hopefully he’ll begin to come into his own, so that this fight will grow into a competitive one.
