Default Andre Ward's next opponent

Who do you think his next opponent should be? Which opponent would he prove something by beating, even at this point of height where he has clearly beaten top contenders like Froch and Kessler? I think he should fight...

1: Andre Dirrell (Andre Dirrell did show superior boxing skills to Froch and he did outbox Arthur Abraham before the DQ. It would be an interesting match, better than people think)

2: Lucian Bute (Yeah, Froch KTFO of Lucian Bute. But Bute's resume proves his skills as a good boxer and some do think that Lucian Bute got a style that could cause Andre Ward some problems. It COULD be interesting, Ward won't KTFO Bute like Froch did)

3: Bernard Hopkins (Yeah, he's old and out of prime, and it has probably worsened since his impressive win against Pascal, considering how Dawson managed to outbox him. But still, Bernard Hopkins' technique haven't aged like his body and it would be an impressive and very tactical match, even if boring and in Ward's favour. Hopkins' awkward style would cause Ward SOME problems)

4: Kelly Pavlik (Pavlik is a very good boxer and would make a great contribution to Andre Ward's resume)

Those matches would be good. Everything else would be a joke.

Why drain himself? If anything, Martinez is looking for big fights he should move up, instead of trying to fight WW's.

If Ward went down to 160 and dominated Martinez he's automatically the P4P number 1 in my mind, no questions asked. That's never happening though, Ward is a decent sized Super Middleweight.

It'll be another masterclass in his next fight however, this time over Pavlik.

I would love to see a neutral site rematch with Kessler. That way when Andre dominates him again his detractors have one less stone. I think it makes decent money, too.

It will be Kelly Pavlik because it allows Andre to build his brand by beating an established, pretty well known fighter.

I dont know why ppl think he can fight Dirrel, Dirrel has fought 1 fight in like 2 yrs vs a bum, we have no idea whats up with him or his "condition" the guy is a giant enigma

His best options are Froch vs Bute 2 winner, Adonis Stevenson, Kessler rematch, Abraham rematch

go up and face Cloud or Campillo or Shumenov or Pascal

Pavlik is alright
