Conteh would out box him from the outside or out muscle him on the inside. He was faster, stronger and more refined. Clear ud for Conteh.

The British forum seems to have lost any sense it once had.

These days people claiming Fury beats Price and Conteh beats Andre Ward?

Every bit as Irish as Ward.

How is it a Yank needs to school you lot on this?

Too many people are biased to the past fighters IMO.

I mean, Conteh was very good. I've got no sort of nationalistic or nostalgic attachment to him whatsoever and recognize that he'd be more difficult than anyone Ward has yet seen. (or is like to at 168 or 175, among those active)

Nobody on either side of the fence should be viewing this as a piece of ****.

Ward by stoppage, and I'm leading this off Conteh losing the second fight against Muhammed.

I never knew John was that good, he clearly wouldn't be stopped. Ward isn't a big hitter. Tony Bellew hopefully will become the next Scouse light heavyweight champion of the world.

Because in our eyes that still makes him English, we don't go back generations when stating where we're from like Americans. I have an Irish Father but I'm born in England, I see myself as English but yes I have Irish heritage. In fact 95% of my family and ancestors are all Irish. We both obviously just have a very different way of looking at things.

Same, im of irish descent but am from Liverpool so am english. Ive never understood yanks who claim to be irish because of there great great great grandparents, even though theyve never been to ireland themselves and no **** all about the place.

And since when have you displayed any common sense? You're a wind up merchant and not much else.

Oh Conteh beats Calzaghe as well and my opinion has **** all to do with with weather a fighter is from a past generation or not.

I do think Price beats Fury however.
