Unbeaten WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) returned after a 14 month layoff to take an impressive and exciting, albeit one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Edwin Rodriguez (24-1, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.

The bout became a non-title after Rodriguez failed to make the 168lb division limit. Both fighters went fight at it in round one, but Ward soon established that he was quicker and sharper landing the cleaner shots. Referee Jack Reiss deducted two points from both fighters after some roughhousing in round four. Ward then proceeded to put on a clinic, picking apart Rodriguez for the rest of the fight. Scores were 118-106, 117-107, 116-108
