OAKLAND, Calif. -- Undefeated Andre Ward used a steady left hook to repeatedly score and unanimously outpointed Alexander Brand to take the WBO Intercontinental light heavyweight championship Saturday night.Ward (30-0) was never seriously threatened by Brand (25-2), the 39-year-old Colombian who lost for the first time since 2012.Ward stunned Brand early and opened a small cut over his right eye while winning every roundAll three judges had the fight 120-112 for Ward.We knew this guy was going to be really, really hard to knock out, Ward said.
