Not only does Williams have a lot more going for him offensively, in terms of foot speed and head movement he's probably better on the defensive side of things as well if not even at the very worst. The middleweight argument is also pretty poor. Both men have flirted between welterweight and middleweight throughout their career and with a 3" in height and 4" in reach he is far more suited to the higher weight. The nature of the win (although Ward won comfortably, it wasn't as infactic) and consider the fact Sergio knocked out a top 10 p4p fighter out in just 2 rounds. Before Chad Ward hadn't fought anyone top 10 p4p and probably won't do (on even terms) in quite some time.
