On December 17, 2011 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ, Andre "SOG" Ward captured the WBC world championship belt, the Ring magazine belt and the Super Six Championship Cup all being added to his trophy case, along with his WBA championship belt he collected in beating Mikkel Kessler in 2009. After emerging victorious from the 25-month gauntlet of facing the very best world contenders and champions in the inaugural Super Six World Boxing Classic, Ward has his sights now on being the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world. In the "Final" bout of the tournament, Andre thoroughly dominated WBC World Champion, Carl Froch (27-2, 20 KOs), with a consistent and accurate offensive attack. The sheer will power and performance against both Froch and Abraham in 2011, earned Andre 2011 "Fighter of the Year" honors from the prestigious Boxing Writers Association of America, along with his trainer, Virgil Hunter, who was named "Trainer of the Year." Ward is also the last American boxer to win Olympic gold, for his performance at the 2004 Games in Athens.
