The only reason why Kessler, Froch and their butthurt fans want Ward to travel is so he can get jobbed in some ridiculous hometown decision, like Dirrell did.
I agree ward wins the fight but as a boxing fan i don't support fights not being made due to the notion that ward is so good the outcome wouldn't be anything different..
With this attitude ward may as well just retire.
Thank god for champs like Kessler who was willing to put it all on the line when he was the no.1 and obviously still prepared to do so.
