It is rare to see a fighter of Andre Ward’s caliber fighting on someone else’s undercard, but it really would not be too difficult to make this happen. Ward and Cotto now share the same promotional company in Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports.
Ward (28-0, 15 KO) has not fought twice in a year since 2011, so the opportunity to fight on a high-profile pay-per-view card could help boost his popularity.
Cotto vs Canelo is being rumored to take place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on November 21.
