The WBA family sends an affectionate greeting to the 168 lbs super champion, Andre Ward, who today celebrates 31 years of life.
He was born in San Francisco, California, USA IN 1984, entered in boxing since at a very young age.
He had a successful amateur career. He was part of the national selection of the United States, and won the gold medal in the Olympic Games of Athens 2004.
In December of that Olympic year, Ward made his debut in the professional line with a TKO 2 to Chris Molina. After some regional titles, he had the opportunity to face the up-to-then Danish Mikkel Kessler, whom he defeated on points.
Since that moment, Ward is the owner of the Black and gold super middleweight belt with six successful defenses.
Congratulations to a great Boxer, WBA ally and exemplary athlete.
