This just makes no sense all around.
1 - Ward cant
make 160 healthily
2 - If he could
drop to 160 healthily, he would fight Sergio, not the guy sergio just beat 11 rounds to 1.
3 - JR doesnt want to fight at 160 anymore, and stated in this very interview if he doesnt fight martinez again hes moving up. He doesnt want to fight at 160, it kills him making the weight there. It would essentially be a fight between two 168lbers, at 160.
Ward vs Chavez at middleweight makes no sense for either fighter.
