DiBella: Andre Ward turned down Curtis Stevens for HBO fight!

Moments ago Lou DiBella informed Boxingtalk.com that Team Andre Ward was not interested in facing undefeated super middleweight Curtis Stevens on Ward's scheduled co-feature on HBO's August 19 installment of Boxing After Dark. DiBella also stated that Stevens was willing to come down to 160 pounds to make the fight, but he understands  why the handlers of the 2004 Olympic Gold Medallist are looking elsewhere. Paul Williams-Sharmba Mitchell will headline the telecast, the Reno Events Center will host all the action and Goossen Tutor Promotions will promote.
