Andre Ward vs. Paul Smith

Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA, June 20
By Peter Lim

This amounts to little more than a tune-up for Andre Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) to sand off the ring rust from his 19-month layoff. Unless Paul Smith (35-5, 20 KOs) has a trick up his sleeve that we've never seen before, Ward cruises to a comfortable decision in what looks more like a glorified sparring session than a prizefight worthy of a national live broadcast.

There was hardly any ring rust at all. Good comeback fight for Ward.
