Last Saturday night, Andre Ward returned to the ring in a match against Paul Smith on BET, and the S.O.G. did not disappoint, winning by TKO in the ninth round.

Ward, good friend of The Shadow League, spoke with King Mo and Rhett about his return to the ring, his partnership with ROCNation, the business of boxing and his style of boxing. The guys also got deep into the discussion, with Mo proving once again that he is a true boxing aficionado and student of the game, breaking down Ward's progression in his career, from start to current day. 

They also discussed breaking stereotypes held against boxers and African-American boxers and the role of the villain that some fighters, in both boxing and MMA, play.

It's another can't miss discussion with one of the best in the game today, with Andre proving, once again, that his success, reputation and intelligence are well deserved and prevalent no matter whether he's in the ring or outside of it. Enjoy another great episode and spread the word!
