I heard somewhere Nazim Richardson (?) say that Ward actually can hit pretty hard he just doesn't chose to because he can control fights so much he doesn't need to or along those lines. That first left hook definitely had some spite to it. But Dawson has never been the most sturdy fighter, especially with the weight issue.

i'm sure i read somewhere that ward said recently, bika was his toughest fight yet.
Definitely but thats just styles. Bika is a tough, ugly fighter whos strong as **** Ward is in a way a much, much more refined version of him. If they were to fight again I'm sure Ward would handle him a lot easier.
