you keep saying this but elude to the fact that america isn't the home of boxing where the super middleweight division is concerned and never has been. Even now, aside from ward there is nothing of note. Just in the same way that America has nothing much to do with the heavy weights..
Correct, and probably Cruiser too. My point was the top 10-20 elite fighters in the world across all of the divisions are based in America. The biggest fights in the world happen in America. Yes of course other big fights happen outside America also. But the majority of the best fighters in the World are in America. This will never change. Because guys that aren't based in the U.S. sooner or later have to go there to make it big on the world stage.

How is ward going to start earning big money soon when there aren't any fights for him at the home of boxing? If America is the home of boxing in relation to 168 then why is ward after all he has achieved lacking in options, exposure and big money fights?
I didn't say in relation to 168. I said the majority of the elite fighters in the World fight for Oscar and Arum in the U.S. Ward hasn't got that many options. I think he'll stick around for a while at 168, and see what happens Kessler, Froch and Bute, and then make a decision. I would think he'll move to 175 soon.
