Exactly - i never got the impression that referees in europe would allow for some of the stuff ward does. I think that he will be forced to fight more on the outside and not be allowed to smother and hit on the break etc.
Ward is great on the outside too but the problem for him will be that he will obviously be in a position to be hit more often, plus he will have to work harder. I have a feeling he is packing an average chin and relys more on not being hit. If kessler does catch him it would be the end.
Bottom line is a ref from europe wouldn't have allowed for the mess the first fight became.
