Ward-Green Presser Wednesday

Oakland’s own WBA Super Middleweight Champion Andre Ward and World-ranked Allan Green will participate in an OPEN TO THE PUBLIC PRESS CONFERENCE on Wednesday at 12:30PM in the Oracle Arena’s Courtside Club. Ward will take on his first world title defense against challenger Allan Green in Group Stage 2 of the Super Six World Boxing Classic on Saturday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California in a clash to be broadcast on SHOWTIME® (10 p.m., ET/PT, delayed on the west coast).

Ward, who has emerged as a tournament favorite following his win in Group Stage 1 against Mikkel Kessler, is currently listed as a 1-1 favorite to win it all by USA Today sports analyst Danny Sheridan. A victory over the world-ranked Green (29-1, 20 KOs), of Tulsa, Okla., will catapult the last American to win an Olympic Games gold medal into the tournament semi-finals.
