[Photos] Molina, Mora ‘The Return Undercard’
VAN NUYS, CA –
On November 16th, WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward makes his return to the ring against undefeated Edwin Rodriguez on a card appropriately entitled “The Return.”
Today, it was all smiles and happiness at the Goose 10 gym as the Goossen Tutor team competing on the card invited members of the media to watch them workout. Leading the way was John Molina. Anxious to get back in the ring since his comeback victory over Mickey Bey back in July, Molina answered questions and engaged in a light workout and get in a shot against Dan Goosseen…literally. As of now, he doesn’t have an opponent. Also on hand, the Latin Snake Sergio Mora (not a Goossen Tutor signee but invited to compete) and featherweight Juan Fuñez fighting in his third professional bout against Carlos Gonazalez.
Fielding question from the media, Dan Goossen answered questions on the coordination of this fight card, specifically the fight between Ward and Rodriguez:
“HBO wanted this fight. They wanted in September but Rodriguez wasn’t available. Andre loves it because he fights a young, upcoming kid. You are going to see a bigger, stronger, Andre Ward.”
“It’s great to have Andre back in the ring and HBO wanted Rodriguez there. This has all the ingredients of a major fight. Andre is gonna knock the socks off everyone including Rodriguez.”
