Used to dislike Ward for butting Kessler and seemingly damaging him, but now he's one of my favorite fighters to watch, and I respect him as a man.

Froch wasn't someone I disliked, but he grew on me a bit more.

I was willing to give Khan another shot after the Maidana fight...he blew it permanently with the Peterson fight. He was disgraceful that night and even more disgraceful after it with all of his excuses and accusations.
