Andre Ward Looks Forward To A Possible AJ Bout

Andre Ward after successfully defending his title against Sergey Kovalev, hinted a possible move up the weights putting the world Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua on his radar.

The Undefeated Ward moved up from the super-middleweight and the 33-year-old has now admitted a bout against the WBA 'super' and IBF heavyweight champion could tempt him to target the top division.

"I always seem to be knocking down giants one by one," Ward said. "Heavyweight, that's always been a dream of mine. It's got to be against the right guy, but I dream big and anything is possible."

Ward added: "He [Ward's trainer Virgil Hunter] has always been setting the bar high, that is the essence of our team right there.. 

"That man will have me believing things that I never even thought of. Like, 'Anthony Joshua, really?' and it will make perfect sense to him. So we'll see."

Ward's trainer Virgil Hunter brought up the idea and believes the American could outpoint the Brit

"Fighting a bigger man doesn't have to do with size, it has to do with your attributes and their attributes," Hunter said.

"If you are able to single out one thing that makes it a competitive fight for yourself, you take that chance.

"I'd like to see him fight Anthony Joshua. I'm not playing, I'm serious. I think it would be a very interesting fight. I believe he could outbox Anthony Joshua.

"There's some things about Joshua that I see. He's a good kid, I know him, but I see things with him in particular and he is the best [of the heavyweight champions], but styles make fights..
"It would be a waste of time to go to the cruiserweights, we should just leapfrog it, go for it all."
