Andre Ward has admitted he misses boxing ‘a lot’ when probed about a possible comeback, which he refused to rule out.
The retired American quit the sport in 2017 when two victories over light-heavyweight king Sergey Kovalev cemented his status as pound-for-pound number one.
As a former Olympic gold medallist, unified super-middleweight and unified light-heavyweight champion, Ward achieved a phenomenal amount in boxing, hence his decision to call it a day with his faculties in tact.
However, when pushed by talkSPORT’s Gareth A Davies and Adam Catterall, he couldn’t guarantee for certain that he wouldn’t make a ring return.
“MSG was the big one that got away from me,” Ward said while standing at Madison Square Garden where Terence Crawford beat Amir Khan on Saturday night.
“I know the executives and they were like, ‘Man, we want you here.’
“I keep hearing that [fans want me back]. I’m relaxing right now, I’m enjoying myself.
“But I will tell you I do miss it. I miss it a lot.”
