For the second time in 10 months, the California State Athletic Commission upheld promoter Dan Goossen's promotional contract with super middleweight champion Andre Ward, who has been seeking to terminate the agreement, ESPN.com reported.

Ward previously lost an arbitration hearing before the commission in June 2013. On Wednesday, arbitrator Andy Foster, the executive officer of the commission, ruled in Goossen's favor following an April 9 hearing at which Ward did not show up and did not testify.

Ward's contract with Goossen was declared valid until Nov. 8, 2016, according to Foster's ruling.

"It's now time to sit down with Andre and his advisers to put these legal disputes behind us and concentrate on getting Andre back to fighting consistently inside the ring," Goossen said.

Ward's side argued his contract should be over based on California's seven-year limit on personal services contracts.
