Andre “S.O.G.” Ward, the number 2 pound for pound king, is now ready to step back into the squared circle in November after a year long layoff due to a shoulder injury that required surgery.
The opponent that Ward will face and put his WBA(Super) and Ring super middleweight titles on the line against on November 16 will not be an easy one as the number 2 pound for pound king will have to showcase his talents to the highest level when he faces up and coming undefeated challenger Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriquez.

The fight will take place at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California; Ward’s home state as the state of California is becoming the usual venue for the number 2 pound for pound’s boxing matches.
So far this year I have to say that Showtime has been the front runner as the best boxing network this year, but now HBO has finally landed a potential great fight in Ward vs. Rodriquez which will pit the 2nd best fighter in the world against a young and hungry undefeated fighter in Rodriquez who feels he has a huge shot in this fight.
The last time Ward was in the ring he pulled off one of the best boxing performances of his career as he destroyed “Bad” Chad Dawson and made Dawson quit last year, while Rodriquez is coming off an impressive 1st round TKO victory over Russian Denis Grochey back in July of this year.
November 16, 2013 could possibly be a monumental night for boxing because Rodriquez believes that he can shock the world by knocking off the number 2 pound for pound fighter in Andre “S.O.G” Ward. Time will tell, but I will say this, Ward has not lost a fight since he was a teenager and he is the number 2 best fighter in the world for a reason so he will be ready and willing to shell out another boxing lesson as he put the boxing world on notice with his destruction of a pretty good fighter in “Bad” Chad Dawson.
This is going to be a great fight and come November, I cannot wait to see the fireworks that are going to take place in this fight.
