Andre Ward vs. Sakio Bika

When: Sat., Nov. 27, 5 p.m. 2010

In a year that hasnÕt been kind to many of the East BayÕs professional sports teams, itÕs nice to know weÕve got a hometown hero in Andre Ward. The Hayward-born professional boxer, who now trains in Oakland, is arguably the best professional boxer in the world, boasting a spotless record, an Olympic gold medal, and the title of World Boxing Association Super Middleweight champion. All this has garnered him a small army of loyal fans, many of whom will be cheering him on at the Oracle Arena (7000 Coliseum Way, Oakland) on Saturday, Nov. 27, as he defends his title against Sakio Bika. Ward is the odds-on favorite, but you never know when youÕre up against a guy nicknamed ÒThe Scorpion.Ó No matter what happens, it should be a great fight. 5 p.m., $36.75-$160.50.
