Andre Ward

Andre Ward, born February 23, 1984, was first introduced to boxing at age nine by his dad, Frank. He’s come a long way since then. His career highlights include 2011 Fighter of the Year, 2004 Olympic gold medal, Light Heavyweight World Champion, and two Super Middleweight World Championship titles. His success earned him a promo deal in January 2015 with Roc Nation Sports. He’s taken his expertise from the mat to behind the mic as a boxing commentator on HBO’s World Championship Boxing and “Boxing After Dark.” Ward learned the tricks of the trade through an internship at a Bar Area Comcast station. In 2015, Ward helped Michael B. Jordan train for his lead role as Apollo Creed’s son in “Creed.” Ward appeared in the film as well. He’s married to his high school sweetheart, Tiffiney. They are parents to sons Andre, Jr., Malachi, and Micah and daughter Amira. The Oakland, CA native gives back to his hometown by speaking at schools, prisons, and youth centers. He’s also gone to Capitol Hill to promote healthy living.
