The Last American Boxer to win Gold Medal: Andre Ward
At the time, a Boxer from the United States had not tasted gold for 8 years until Andre Ward won the gold at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece. Ward defeated Magomed Aripgadzhiyev of Belarus in the Light Heavyweight division. Boxing is currently underway in Rio for the 2016 Olympic games and if the US does not win gold it will mark 12yrs since Ward put his talents on notice, and a drought that US boxing fans can stand to bare. Relive the epic gold medal match from 2004 in Athens.
