Andre Ward easily beats Allan Green in Super Six

Andre Ward (right) vs. Mikkel Kessler

Saturday night's Super Six World Boxing Classic matchup between WBA super middleweight champ Andre Ward and Allan Green was supposed to be a defining statement for someone.

Ward (22-0, 13 KOs) was the one who made that statement as he blanked Green for a unanimous-decision win over Green (29-2, 20 KOs).

It was easy pickings for Ward, who worked inside with great efficiency and had Green on the defensive and on the ropes for a large portion of the fight. All three judges scored the bout 120-108.

Ward didn't appear to be impressed with Green. "I did expect a little tougher fight," Ward said.

Ward earned a spot in the Super Six semifinal with the victory.

Green, despite the loss, could stil earn a spot in the semifinal if he can manage a win over WBC champ Mikkel Kessler in Group Stage 3.

"Andre Ward fought a hell of a fight," Green said. "I weighed in at 166. By time I got to the ring I felt dead."
