Andre Ward won the super middleweight title in November, now his job is to keep the championship belt. Ward defends the crown in 10 days against Allan Green.

The 2004 Olympic gold medalist worked out on Wednesday at King's Gym in Oakland.

Ward and Green are fighting as part of the Super Six World Boxing Classic -- a series of elimination bouts at 168 pounds.

Ward says he needs to build on his 11th round win over Mikkel Kessler to stay undefeated.

"It was a great performance. I felt like we did really well, we won the title. That was always a long-term goal, but the goal is to out-do that performance. To say that is to say that I haven't rested yet. I'm still going to work and I'm still putting in the man hours," says Ward.
