Re: Do you consider Ward an underrated fighter??
Underrated? No. I feel he's rated highly, as he should be.
Under-appreciated? Yes. He has no fan appeal.
It's like George Foreman said, "Boxing is like jazz, the better it is, the less people appreciate it." People want to see a scrap. They want to see guys like Arturo Gatti. Ward's there to do a job, to get the win any way he can. He's skilled and utilitarian.
