Andre Ward returns November 16 to face Edwin Rodriguez

Undefeated WBA world champion and former Olympic Gold Medalist Andre Ward (26-0, 14 KO's) will finally make his much anticipated return to the ring on November 16th when he squares off against Edwin Rodriguez (24-0, 16 KO's) at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, CA. Ward is coming off over a one year layoff since defeated Chad Dawson back in September of 2012. After the fight, Ward suffered a shoulder injury that required him to have surgery forcing the layoff from his boxing career. Rodriguez, now promoted by Lou Dibella, just one the one million dollar Monte Carlo tournament in Monaco after a stunning first round KO over Denis Grachev. While Ward will be a heavy favorite, Rodriguez should be a very tough opponent and could pull off a upset over a fighter coming off surgery and inactivity.
