Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Andre Ward has chosen to let his fans in on his life’s story, one which defies the odds from the streets of Oakland to boxing greatness. ‘Killing the Image: A Champion’s Journey of Faith, Fighting, and Forgiveness’ unfolds the remarkable tale of Ward’s unwavering resilience and determination, tracing his evolution from a challenging upbringing in Oakland, California, to his ascent as a timeless figure in the world of boxing. In his compelling memoir, he unfolds the gripping tale of his remarkable career, intertwining it with the unyielding strength of his faith.

One of the first to receive a signed copy of the book is none other than the three-division champion, Terence Crawford. It is not just a signed copy, but it also holds a special message for Ward’s dear friend.

Crawford posted a picture of the book on his Instagram along with a video of Ward gifting ‘Bud’ the book. He captioned it “Appreciate you bro @andresogward Everyone if you haven’t already got your book, it’s in stores now. Go pick you one up and support the real.” urging fans to buy a copy and support the former boxer. In the same carousel, there also was a sweet message addressed to Crawford.

Ward wrote, “You know you are a great fighter but you are an even better man. Keep being you! Love my boi!!” expressing his appreciation and love for the undisputed champion. On the other hand, the fighter Ward does not feel deserving of the hype is Francis Ngannou. Recently, Ward commented on Ngannou’s name popping up in WBC’s top ten rankings.

In the aftermath of Francis Ngannou’s intense showdown with Tyson Fury, the former world champion has cast a critical eye on the Cameroonian’s recent ascent to the WBC’s top 10 rankings. Despite Ngannou’s commendable performance against Fury, which included a third-round takedown of the British champion, Ward remains unconvinced. Speaking on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Ward expressed his dissent, attributing Ngannou’s ranking to the murky realm of sports politics.

Ward emphasized the disparity, noting fighters who have tirelessly strived to break into the prestigious top 10.“I’m gonna call it what it is — it’s like politics. That’s what it is with the sanctioning bodies.” Dismissing it as a political move within the sanctioning bodies, Ward took a direct jab at Mauricio Sulaiman. He alleged that the rankings were more a product of backstage maneuvering than merit.
