Andre Ward And Max Kellerman Leave ESPN

Max Kellerman and Andre Ward have departed from their roles on ESPN as boxing analysts. 

The major shake-up was part of the network’s wider attempt at cutting costs as they consider taking a new direction.

Kellerman, for his part, had been with ESPN for 25 years since joining in 1998 for the network’s ‘Friday Night Fights,’ show. 

This was then followed up by Kellerman’s ‘Max on Boxing,’ show that featured heavily when the fight cards played out. 

In contrast, Ward became a fan favorite after having been a hall-of-famer boxer, who went undefeated and became a world champion in two-weight classes: super middleweight and light heavyweight.

But in the aftermath of Jared Anderson’s win over Charles Martin, ‘S.O.G’ called it a day. 

“Tonight’s show was the last fight under my ESPN contract. It’s been a great ride and I’m going to miss the whole ESPN crew that I’ve worked with for the last six years. I’m excited about my future and the chance to work on new projects and endeavors. Great things are ahead,” Ward

The network will have huge boots to fill, given the competition in boxing presented by the PBC and DAZN.

But what ESPN have shown is that they are capable of putting on mega flights, and the same must now go for the broadcasting team.
