Truthfully, the LHW division is so weak at the minute that I'd still favour Conteh over him which is very unfortunate for Ward as there just doesn't seem to be a good enough test for him.

If Conteh was around now he'd be clear no.1 LHW IMO, without a doubt.

But yeah if he shows he is strong/durable at the weight (which he probably will be) then I'd prob change to Conteh points. I just don't give out credit based on potential, especially when we've never seen the guy at that weight AND especially against a Brit!
