BodyKore was at the Ward vs Abraham Super Six World Boxing Championship. The event took place last Saturday 5/14/11 at the Home Depot Center in Carson California. Drawing thousands of fans at the event, everyone got to witness Ward go undefeated again in his boxing career.
WBA world super middleweight champion Andre Ward successfully defended his crown with a unanimous decision victory over former IBF world middleweight titlist “King” Arthur Abraham Saturday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.
With the easy triumph over Abraham (32-3, 26 KOs), Ward (24-0, 13 KOs) advanced to the finals of The Super Six World Boxing Classic slated for sometime this autumn.
Ward, currently rated by Ring Magazine as the No. 9 pound-for-pound prizefighter in the world.
The lovely ring girls at the event.
Showtime commentators were on hand giving play by play action of the fights.
Ward threw 289 jabs over 12 rounds, landing 178 of his 444 total punches. Abraham got credit for more power punches and landed a similar percentage of total punches, but Ward landed all the blows that counted.
Ward emerged as an elite pound-for-pound fighter while dominating the group stage of this now-ramshackle tournament matching the world’s top 168-pounders outside of Canada’s Lucian Bute, the likely challenger for the Super Six winner.
