On the Conteh v Ward match up it's hard to to really estimate how good Ward is because he has handled everything put in front of him fairly comfortably. He's so ****ing elusive I think Conteh would find him an enigma wrapped up in a riddle. I could see Ward fighting conservatively and taking a decision.
Wouldnt argue with that Strongback.I think the fact that he handled both Froch and Kessler fairly easily makes him a really excellent fighter.Regarding lightheavy,if Dawson hadnt come down in weight the win would have been even better.But I saw Conteh clearly outpoint a decent British heavy in Les Stevens who I think drew with Jimmy Young,in his pre decline days.Conteh a bigger man than Ward,making it a great fantasy match IMO.
