Showtime Boxing: Andre Ward Honored At Oakland A’s Game Tonight

By Boxing Press June 4th, 2010 All Press Releases

Undefeated WBA Super Middleweight Champion and America’s last Olympic Gold Medalist Andre Ward (20-0, 13 KOs) will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at his hometown Oakland A's game against the Minnesota Twins tonight at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Ward, who captured the WBA belt with a convincing, 11th-round technical decision over Mikkel Kessler in the Super Six World Boxing Classic opener on Nov. 21, 2009 at Oracle, is looking forward to taking the field.

"I'm excited for this opportunity to show my support to The Oakland A's,’’ Ward said. “They are my hometown team and I am a baseball fan!’’

Ward will make his first title defense against world-ranked contender Allan “Sweetness” Green (29-1, 20 KOs), of Tulsa, Okla., in a Super Six World Boxing Classic Group Stage 2 bout on Saturday, June 19, on Showtime at the Oracle Arena.

Ward will look to successfully defend against the mouthy Green in front of his local fans and take another step toward winning the Super Six World Boxing Classic.

Tickets for the June 19 event are priced at $300, $150, $65 and $35 and are available at the Oracle Arena Box Office, 7000 Coliseum Way, Oakland, CA 94621, Phone: (510) 569-2121 or online thru

The Ward-Green event is presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions, Antonio Leonard Productions and DiBella Entertainment.
