Olympic gold medalist Andre Ward is in Houston this week, where he is expected to sign a professional contract with manager James Prince, according to a source close to Prince. Prince and Ward, in addition, are considering a partnership with promoter Bob Arum, with whom Prince "has an excellent working relationship," the source said. Ward, of Oakland, Calif., defeated Magomed Aripgadjiev of Belarus, 20-13, in Athens on Sunday to earn the United States only its third boxing gold medal since 1992, and its first since David Reid of Philadelphia earned the honor in 1996.

Boxing manager Steve Nelson needed only a short sales pitch to persuade World Boxing Association middleweight champion William Joppy it was time for him to sever ties with Washington adviser J. D. Brown and consider seeking a release from promoter Don King. "All I told him was that he was the best champion nobody knows," said Nelson, who also co-manages heavyweight contender Hasim Rahman of Baltimore with Stan Hoffman. Nelson signed Joppy to a three-year agreement guaranteeing him at least four fights a year.

Andre Ward, America's first Olympic boxing gold medalist since 1996 and its third since 1992, has reached a "multi-fight, multi-year" agreement to be co-promoted by Dan Goossen and former world champion Roy Jones, Goosen said yesterday. Ward, 20, will make his professional debut on Dec. 18, ironically on the undercard of a main event between Jones conquerors Antonio Tarver and Glen Johnson at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The fight is the first of what manager James Prince, who signed Ward four days after his come-from-behind victory over a Belarus boxer in Athens, Greece, has planned during an ambitious schedule of eight bouts per year.
