Ward Green Ward vs. Green  andre ward allan green Photo credit: Tom Casino/Showtime – By Dan Amrbose: Allan Green (29-1, 20 KO’s) has a lot of notes on WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (21-0, 13 KO’s), says Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports News. The notes list the weaknesses and tendencies of Ward, who Green will be fighting this Saturday night at the Oracle Arena, in Oakland, California. However, you have to wonder whether it will even matter how many notes Green has collected on Ward.

This falls under the heading of no news is good news.” You can read that anyway you’d like, but it doesn’t sound very promising.
