Proposed HBO clash between Andre Ward and Dimitry Sartison falls through

By Karl Freitag

A proposed September 28th fight between WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward and WBA #4 rated Dimitry Sartison has collasped. A deal had been reached and contracts were ready to be signed, however HBO rejected the fight. Sartison (30-2, 18 KOs), a former WBA world champion himself, will now fight on August 24 against Baker Barakat (38-14-4, 26 KOs) at the Hockeypark in Moenchengladbach, Germany. By the time the fight date rolls around for Ward vs. TBA, Andre will have been out of action for over a year, due to a shoulder injury followed by a promotional dispute.
