Andre Ward

Senator John McCain, of Arizona, and Rep. Peter King, of New York are looking for a presidential pardon for Jack Johnson, the   heavyweight champion. A similar resolution passed the senate and house of representatives in 2009, but President Obama did not act on it. Generally, they do not act on posthumous pardon requests.

Super middleweight titlist Andre Ward signed a multiyear promotional contract extension. He also re-signed with co-promoter Antonio Leonard and manager James Prince. The deals were finalized around a month ago, but were kept quiet on account that Ward was preparing to defend his 168 pound title against Arthur Abraham. Ward hasn’t lost a fight since he was a 12-year-old amateur!

Joseph Agbeko

“On Freddie Roach” – a new six-episode unscripted primetime series to debut in early 2012 on HBO. It’s to focus on Roach and his daily life of working with fighters at his Wild Card Boxing Club, and his fight with Parkinson’s. Says Roach ”I am used to it… They have the keys to my house to get in.” “”It’s going to be my lift at home and mostly everything in the gym leading up to fights… Sometimes it gets overwhelming… I tell them to go home.” The show began filming about 10 days before the May 7th Pacquiao vs. Mosely. Freddie Roach, 51, is a native of Dedham, Massachusetts, was a longtime pro fighter. He recently received his third trainer of the year award – in a row.

Joseph Agbeko cleared for training – fight scheduled for August 13th. He thanked Abner Mares and Showtime for giving him time to recover.
