Ward and Hunter are very good at coming up with gameplans and Ward at implementing them, Joe could do it in the moment and improvise at any point during the fight to make necessary adjustments. Maybe his most unique and formitable quality.
I remember Calzaghe-Bika being very close and scrappy. Comparable to Ward-Bika in scoring.
