Super middleweight Andre Ward has learned over the years that training for a fight doesn’t mean “living like a caveman and staring at a wall to focus on a fight.” Ward, who fights Allan Green on June 19 in Oakland, Calif., to close out the second round of the Super Six World Boxing Classic, said at a public workout that he balances fight preparation with relaxation–which these days includes watching the NBA Finals. Ward predicted that the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics will split the next two games in Boston and when the series returns to Los Angeles, the Lakers, up 2-1 in the best-of-7 series, will win the title.
