Ward, who is now in the semi-finals of the Super Six World Boxing Classic on Showtime, will be providing analysis and doing interviews at the February 18th weigh-in and the post fight press conference on February 19th. Ward will be joining Al Bernstein and Trip Mitchell on the coverage team. All the features and interviews can be seen at www.Boxingchannel.com.
An Olympic champion, Ward is undefeated as a pro and has plans to continue in boxing as a broadcaster after his career has ended. He has worked as an in-studio boxing analyst for Comcast in Northern California. Now, he joins Boxingchannel.com for this assignment.
Ward said, " People are starting to see how important commentating is to me both currently as an active fighter, and as a second career once I retire. Al Bernstein is a legend in this business and has been extremely helpful to me as I tackle this new challenge, and I'm excited to work with him and the Boxing Channel team to cover my first fight as a member of the media. Some
people think that commentating while I am an active fighter is a distraction
but it is something I really enjoy."
