Default Re: Haha Andre Ward clowning froch on twitter

In what we can fairly be described as a mega fight against Chad Dawson, Ward (in his hometown) sold only 7500 tickets in 17,000 seat arena. Froch against some B-level fighter sold 10,000 and packed Nottingham FM out.

Ward is a fantastic fighter with amazing skills but the fact is he's boring to watch. No doubt about it. Just because a you're a great fighter doesn't make you an entertaining or interesting fighter (e.g Klitschkos being another fine example).

Froch is very entertaining to watch because of his 'all-guns blazing' style. If Froch and Ward fought identical opponents on the same night then more people would watch Froch. FACT.

Ward and his team obviously don't like the fact that they can't attract any big name fights when Froch can (talks or Bute and Kessler rematches in recent weeks). It's obviously nipping away at them so now Ward has started to act up a bit on Twitter. No surprise.

As much a good, down-to-earth guy as he comes across as being, I honestly wouldn't watch any Andre Ward unless it was a rematch Froch. His style is just not good viewing.
