Baseball? Check. Football? Check. Basketball? Check … and now Jay Z can add boxing to the list of sports in his Roc Nation sports empire — inking super middleweight champ Andre Ward.
Ward — who’s 27-0 and recognized as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world — announced this morning, “It’s official!! #NextChapter Happy to be a part of the @rocnation family.”
It seems like a good union for both parties … Jay’s reportedly been trying to get into the boxing game for a while but was holding out for a fighter with real star-power.
As for Ward — he hasn’t fought in nearly two years due to business disputes with his former promoter … but it’s clear he feels Jay can get him back on track.
Plus, anything that brings you closer to Rihanna has got to be a positive.
