Goossen: Ward will convert naysayers

Jan Sanders/Goossen Tutor Promotions

“I think that when everybody sees what Andre Ward does Saturday night to a very capable super middleweight like Allan Green, I believe we’ll start getting a lot more believers,” said promoter Dan Goossen to the SHOWTIME crew during his pre-fight interview. “I can remember back to the Muhammad Ali days when I was a young kid watching Ali and every time you’d see him mowing down someone and beating up someone and winning and winning and winning! But there was always those skeptics out there saying ‘Oh just wait until he fights this one fighter!’ or ‘Wait until he has to do that!’ You know it’s just the way it is with people and opinions so a lot of people won’t give Andre Ward his just due. Saturday night will just be another step into converting the ones who are the naysayers.”
