That's fair enough. Ward hasn't left home as yet. But he's only 28.

Ottke retired after 34 fights at home, against opposition that wasn't as good as the guys who Andre's fought.

The circumstances are different. Ward got a gift because Goosen's his promoter and Showtime hosted the event.

I'm sure that if the tournament had been in hosted in Britain or Germany, and Andre would have had to have travelled, then I'm sure that he would have done.

I have little problem with Ward fighting Pavlik now. There's no reason to hype the fight though. It's a gimme against someone who has namevalue only. Just like the Dawson fight.
The Dawson fight certainly wasn't seen as a gimme for Andre when it was signed.
