Pound 4 Pound Apparel's biggest gun takes center stage this coming Saturday against hard hitting and big mouth Edison Miranda. The fight is in Andre's hometon of Oakland, California.
It is his stiffest challenge of his career.
There is a very good chance the Pound 4 Pound logo will be on the canvas.
Please tune in and support our guy and feel free to get a Ward shirt also.

Easily the biggest night for our young company.
We will be in the program, on the mat, selling shirts at the arena, and oh yeah, Andre Ward in fighting in his own back yard.
Please everyone tune in and cheer our guy on.
This is unreal to me and could be a great evening.

Tonight is the night.
Ward will dominate Miranda, easy decision or late stoppage.

Our new and improved website is up by the way and our Pound 4 Pound logo shirts will be up in the next few days as well.
Thanks to everyone for all the support.

Logo looks great in the ring cuz.

Effin Miranda. Another headbutt. Blatant. Ward looked tenative to start the fight, headbutt and resulting cut pissed him off.

Should be an interestign fight. First round was awesome.

I'm not sure why guys would want to fight Miranda at this point in his career.

That headbutt was absurd and with the low blows you leave yourself vulnerable to something stupid from him.

Entertaining fight thus far though, Ward is showing a lot of toughness.

Miranda is such a thug.

Great round by Ward. Great job by his corner getting that cut closed.

Great fight. Come on Andre. Knock this punk out.

Got Ward winning rds 1 & 3.

Ward said in the prefight interview, he was chasing other guys for this slot. Guys with belts. None of em wanted to take the fight. Finally settled on Miranda, cause he felt he needed a name win. Which he does.

You can almost see that Miranda is looking for one shot.

Ward is just sizing up and teeing off.

This fight should end shortly if Ward stays aggressive.

Miranda simply had no respect for Ward's punching power coming into this fight. Didn't think he could hurt him, had left himself wide open all night.

Miranda just flat out sucks. I got the same scorecard, Swerb.

Guy has ridden the Abraham fight long enough, he's a lesser-Arturo Gatti to me...

That said, it makes it tougher to evaluate Ward, while on one point he's taking care of business and fighting a solid fight, on the other hand the low hands and his tendancy to get a little loose with his punches and approaches are cause for concerns against higher level competition. Still the skills are there.

Also this announcing crew is viciously bias towards Ward, almost a little over-board.

Ward is clearly skilled. Has impressed me with the toughness he's showed tonight as well. Ward is making a statement tonight to the naysayers that have questioned his toughness and competition fought to this point.

To me, Ward is kind of along the same lines as Bad Chad. Both very polished, skilled. Neither with devastating power, maybe both would be better suited one weight class lower .. Dawson at 168, Ward at 160.

Both are going to be very tough to knock out or outpoint though.

Two very talented young fighters. Would love to see em scrap at 168.

Super work by Ward's corner tonight. Closing that cut, and schooling him in between rounds. Absolutely top notch work from the corner tonight.
