Diaz brothers team up with Olympic gold medalist Andre Ward

source: http://www.diazbrothers.com

Nick and Nathan Diaz will be joining the camp of Olympic Gold Medalist, Andre Ward. Ward will be fighting in the finals of the “Super Six Tournament” against Carl Froch on the same night that Nick Diaz is set to fight UFC Champion, Georges St. Pierre. Nick and Andre have sparred infrequently for the past 10 years with each man acheiving immense success in their respective sport. This be the first time the two fighters collaborate to spar frequently in an official camp.

In the history of boxing and mma, this will mark the first time two champions from these sports have teamed up together. Spike television’s Primetime show and Showtime’s Barker show will undoubtedly put the spotlight on this collaboration.

“I know that Georges is training with Freddie Roach but I doubt he’s sparring Pacquiao. Nick will be sparring frequently with Ward and I think it will help him tremendously.” -Cesar Gracie

andre ward is slick and elusive. good training partner for ND. can't wait for this fight. GSP knows he needs a finish, another decision will cost him.

This is great for Nick Diaz, but I hope Andre Ward has better sparring partners coming in. :/He's got to get sharp for Carl Froch.
