Default Re: Kessler and Froch fans are pathetic!!


That's fair enough. Ward hasn't left home as yet. But he's only 28.
So you think he will travel to his opponents backyard? I don't.


Ottke retired after 34 fights at home, against opposition that wasn't as good as the guys who Andre's fought.
He did beat Glen Johnson though and he fought the available opposition didn't he?

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.
Goosen did a tremendous job for Ward no doubt about it. He made the ultimatum that if Ward didn't get all his fights at home he wouldn't enter. The rival promotors caved in under pressure from Showtime.

The Dawson fight certainly wasn't seen as a gimme for Andre when it was signed.

Regards, Loudon.
It was a gimme from the moment it was clear that the fight was at 168 and in jOakland. Everybody but Ward-stans knew that.
