Lots of people think that Dirrell was robbed.
So what makes you think Ward would have won outside the USA? Because he won home decisions easily? Then why did he have a glass passport and refuse to leave Oakland! If he lived in Vegas it would almost be (almost, but not really) be forgivable...but instead he fought out of the mecca of boxing that is Oakland.
What makes me think Ward would have won outside the U.K.? Because he's better than Taylor and Dirrell.
We've seen Andre outclass Froch in the final. Do you think he'd suddenly turn into Roy Jones if the fight was in Nottingham?
We know that Andre Ward had advantages over the other fighters. But that's because Showtime hosted the tournament, and Goosen got him home town advantages. Goosen put in requests, and Sauerland and all of the other promoters including Eddie Hearn for Matchroom all AGREED!
Do you think if Carl had have had the opportunity to fight all of his fights at the Nottingham Arena, he'd have said no? Ha! I don't think so.
