Why move to 175 when you've already beaten the top guy there and there are no other big names or money earners in the division? Especially when you could go to Europe and make a killing in a stadium super fight or two, against guys rated higher than any one at 175.
Personally I'd like to see Ward fight the winner of Kessler - Froch in a big stadium fight, shut up his few remaining critics, perhaps stick around for another fight or 2 at 168 (If either of the Dirrels want it) before moving up to 175 when the division has settled down and has a clear number 1. Ideally a Chad rematch against a 100% Dawson.
