Concise and insightful post. Yes, it would be nigh on impossible to lure Ward out of his hometown where he enjoys every advantage under the sun (choice of gloves, ring size, hometown referee etc).
None of that would matter because Groves has already proved his mettle, having fought in the US twice. Ward already tasted the canvas against a journeyman called Boone. He was on Queer Street and was saved by the bell. Imagine the damage Groves would inflict.
