The Home Depot Center in Los Angeles, Ca will host the upcoming super
middleweight championship bout between Andre Ward (23-0, 14 knockouts)
and Arthur Abraham (32-2, 30 knockouts) on May 14.

On fighting in Los Angeles, Ward said: "I think it is good. He is
going to have a large contingent of Armenian fans and I am going to
have my fans. So it is going to be fun."

Despite all of the signs pointing towards victory in his favor, Ward
feels like he has plenty to prove on May 14. He is already working
out four days a week and looks forward to fighting away from his
hometown for the first time since 2009, thesweetscience.com reported.

Ward went on saying: "I am not satisfied with 2010. I am trying to
get better in 2011. You know, I am thankful for everything that has
happened to me, but there is work to be done. I feel like I have to
redeem myself because I was not satisfied with my last performance. I
was not happy with it. So, I am trying to continue to grow. That is
why I am not sitting around waiting for this date to come along. I'm
working. And I am highly motivated."
