2011 Fighter of The Year: Andre Ward

Let’s just get down to it: For The Suits boxer of the year is Andre Ward. I ain’t sugar coating it or gonna leave ya in suspense. There could be no other winner. With his emphatic win in the Super Six tournament Andre Ward cemented himself as the absolute best in his division and one of the best pound for pound in the world. I only wish the Super Six final would have got some of the press attention it deserved outside of the boxing world, but it seems as though unless it revolves around Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather the mainstream press does not care. These will be the same people that are talking as if they knew Andre Ward was going to be at the top of the sport a few years from now. At the moment he’s the fight fans hidden secret, a star simply beginning to shine. I can’t wait to see where he goes from here.
