LAS VEGAS — Unified Super middleweight titleholder Andre Ward suffered a shoulder injury during training and his Jan. 26 title defense against Kelly Pavlik will likely be rescheduled, multiple sources told SI.com
Though no final decision has been made, sources say the fight will likely be rescheduled in late February or early March.
Ward (26-0) is coming off a 10th-round TKO of Chad Dawson on Sept. 8. Pavlik, who took nine months off from boxing to begin 2012, has won his last four fights, most recently defeating Will Rosinsky in July.
