Andre Ward will be returning from hiatus by appearing on BET (Black Entertainment Television) under the banner of rapper Jay-Z. Ward is a large betting favorite against Britain's Paul Smith in their June 20 fight.
Andre Ward is the overwhelming favorite at (-5000) with the total set at 11.5 rounds. You can check out the various props for this fight at Bovada.
With Ward being such a big betting favorite, many boxing fans are already looking ahead to a possible super-fight with Ward and Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin.
The bookies have Ward winning by knockout as the most likely outcome at (-200), as he has stated he wants to impress in front of his hometown fans in Oakland, one of the few places Ward has been able to draw a crowd.
“We want to put on a tremendous performance and let people know that Andre Ward is back and doing it in Oakland, California.”
