Ryan Burton of Boxing Scene has reported the news that Ward will return on March 26th, and will likely headline a bumper night of boxing action live on HBO.

To those not familiar with Sullivan Barrera, he will represent a good first test for Ward who will fight at the 175lbs weight limit (fully) for the first time ever.

33 year old Cuban Sullivan Barrera, is 17-0 (12KO) as a professional and has notable stoppage wins over the likes of Karo Murat and (all be it against a very faded) Jeff Lacy.

Ward last fought in June of last, when he comprehensively shut down Englishman Paul Smith in a catchweight bout on route to a 9th round TKO victory.
