“It’s great to be back behind the mic and working for ESPN alongside Joe
Tessitore and Teddy Atlas, two guys that I respect and who provide great
commentary to the sport of boxing,” Ward said. “I love stepping in to the
broadcast booth because I have the best seat in the house, I’m not taking
any punches, and I get to talk about the sport I know and love.
Crawford-Indongo and Mayweather-McGregor are two of the biggest fights in
the sport right now and I’m looking forward to providing my own unique
insight and being an asset to ESPN’s boxing coverage.”
