Many people was waiting for this fight to happen but apparently its not, The fight iscancelled and this time there are no reschedule date.

This is not the first time that this fight was cancelled and move and this time it looks like it will be totally cancelled. Andre Ward apparently need a surgery for his injured shoulder. Initially everyone thought it was just minor but now it looks like a serious problem. Andre Ward who is only at 28 years old is being cautious, he  is a young fighter and that being said it is a wise decision to go thru the surgery first and not gamble on pursuing the fight and making the injured shoulder worst.

A message from Andre Ward

"When I first got injured, there was a lot of inflammation, and the MRI was misread by the first radiologist. I've been doing extensive rehab and the shoulder was getting stronger, but after three and a half weeks of rehab, there was still slight pain that had me concerned enough to get two additional opinions.
It was then diagnosed that there is a small tear in my shoulder capsule. It's not a major tear, but I can either rest it and see if it heals itself or speed up the process by surgically repairing it, and be stronger than I was before the injury and that's what we opted to do.
I'm working with one of the best orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists in Northern California, and I know that I will come back stronger than before. I appreciate all the support that I've already received and my fans can rest assured that I'm going to be back in the ring as soon as possible
Despite the injury, I still plan to have a big 2013 and hope to have two fights in the New Year.

I was really looking forward to the fight with Pavlik. Everything was on board and situations happen, but I wish Kelly Pavilk and his team nothing but the best in the future."
