Default Ward will ALWAYS be a bad match up..

For Carl.

Ward is too slick, elusive, more technical, has a better array of punches and has a much better skill set than Carl. They could fight 10/10 and Ward will always win. He is a NIGHTMARE for Froch, statistically speaking.

Carl should go after the WBO belt and see if Ward moves up and then make a case for the vacant belts.

Froch should push for a AA, Kessler & Bute rematch. Not Ward, Kessler & Bute rematches.

Ward wouldn't win 10/10, he's got a glass chin, if they fought 120 rounds eventually froch would crack that egg

Just saying

Ward is a meh version of Hopkins. For a straight-up puncher/brawler like Froch that's always going to be a long unforgiving night.

Wards a horrible fight for Froch and I would expect Ward to be even better the second time round as he is simply a more technical and strategic fighter. Frochs game plan would be to try and push the fight more.

Bute 2 is a decent win, Kessler 2 is where its at and that is huge, Ward 2 is an acceptable way to lose and sign off after all hes given boxing.

Agree with most of this.Think Carl should see to Stevenson if thats his mandatory,its a good fight for Nottingham.Then Kessler on neutral ground{Vegas?]and Bute if he wants it.Agree with Achilles last line about Ward.Maybe Carl can do better,but not win.I think in 3years time Ward will be spoken of like Roy Jones.
