Underrated? No. I feel he's rated highly, as he should be.

Under-appreciated? Yes. He has no fan appeal.

It's like George Foreman said, "Boxing is like jazz, the better it is, the less people appreciate it." People want to see a scrap. They want to see guys like Arturo Gatti. Ward's there to do a job, to get the win any way he can. He's skilled and utilitarian.

Very underrated. He should be ranked in the top 3 P4P.

Overrated.... Andre ward isn't as good as people think... There isn't much difference between him and John ruiz! He leaves the jab out and u kno the rights comin straight after.... His power is horrendous for a champion.... Not malignaggi bad but he's got next no power!! Dirrell would beat him, bute will beat him ... Styles make fights and with his only impressive attribute SPEED, so he will more than likely beat froch, which isn't good for the sport!!

I don't think he's underrated. Most people rate him pretty fairly, while others overrate him currently.

These are the type of people who over rate him. He has yet to crack the top ten p4p list at the moment, imo. VERY close, no doubt.

A win over Froch and he does enter the p4p rankings, somewhere between 7 and 10, below Mayweather, Pac, Martinez, Marquez, Donaire and Wlad.

His p4p spot ranking is overrated if you have him top 10 going into this fight but then again he is only a couple hours away from cracking my top 10 with a win over Froch

A bit underrated because a lot doesn’t like his style inside the ring.

I don’t get why he fights the way he does?

He is the best SMW in the world, and I think he could be that without all his defensive and dirty tactics.

He does not get the same exposure as some others b/c of his style of fighting, and he is very dirty. He's rated about right, he's very good, but he is not the best fighter in his division.

No, hes definitely overrated as he is in many p4ps lists and Froch isn't. Froch has a far better resume, so much better that it overrides Ward's extra talent.

How do you make that one out.Froch not being in p4p rankings doesn't make Ward overrated.And as for a far better resume,ward is the better fighter because of ability.At the end of the day talent beats power and work-ethic.For the record im a fan of the cobra.

Ward doesn't deserve to be in the p4p rankings if Froch isn't because Froch resume is that much better that it overtakes the difference in talent and boxing ability between the two.

Pretty self explanatory the first time really.
