Its all there in the last few pages. Ward wasn't after a fight with ANYBODY, this is proven by the fact he did not fight till the end of 2012. There is no arguing against this fact.
Nobody else will argue this except you and the rest of your chumps who are known Ward haters.
If you are so confiant about it , make a thread with a poll. Go on , do it.
Are you actually going to provide some sources to back up anything you say?
Bute's team wanted to fight Ward first and foremost. Ward's team made no contact because they didn't want the fight:
"It's like he was resurrected after Easter ... after all, his nickname is 'Son Of God.' When I first read [Ward's comments], I thought it was a joke. We never had any discussions with Andre Ward. In fact, we have not heard from him since December 18... If he wanted to fight Lucian, we might have already been one week away before the fight."
Bute's manager confirms that if Ward wanted to fight, they would never have faced Froch. Carl was the back up, because Ward didn't want to fight. How is this not sinking in yet?
