The WBC announced on 27 April 2012 that they were giving Ward ‘Champion in Recess’ status on the grounds that he had broken his hand last time out and it needed to heal. Although there had been rumours that Ward was considering giving up the WBA and WBC belts, believing that the Ring belt was far more prestigious and was not really interested in defending against [[Anthony Dirrell]], with two months left to make a defence the WBC’s actions were surprising to say the least. All of that was forgotten when he signed up to defend all three belts against [[Chad Dawson]] in September 2012.
