i think he has a chance,he does have KO power,if he fights more miadana than himself,that is chasing for the kill non stop,he might just get it.

ward has had it easy so far,kessler looked awful,not doing nothing good to push ward.

green was over trained and not that good anyway,bika was a horrible messy fight,ward couldnt fight to a game plan very well there,got dragged into bikas fight.

AA has a puncher's chance, and I think a lot of people are giving up on Abraham too easily. Most people are still in that state of mind where all you have to do is jab Abraham to win. That is true, but you also have to have a good strong jab, and have big size. Dirrell and Froch fit this description. Ward doesn't. Ward paws with the jab a lot and he doesn't use his full frame. He bends at that knees. Again, I'm not saying Abraham will win, I'm just saying don't be so quick to disregard Abraham. He may buzz Ward once or twice in this fight.

Maybe...

It's really Ward's fight to lose IMO. He is a notorious tape-studier, so he'll know all about Abraham by fight night if he doesn't already (which he surely must, given how long he's had to scout all his potential S6 opponents). He knows about the power. He'd have to pull a totally boneheaded move to get caught. He does have a strong jab from the outside (although it hasn't been used as prominently in his last couple of fights) and while he doesn't have size on Abraham, his movement is more than good enough to keep the former MW champ striking out swinging all night.

Abraham is so slow he has Zero chance not even a punchers chance Ward is way to smart to fast and just way to good.

Abraham probably has more chance of beating ward than he did froch.

froch being taller,with more range and more power than ward.

and it does seem ward can get dragged out of his gameplan and into the other guys fight of late.

also depends on if ward comes in and they clash heads or not.
HOPE A MIRACLE CAN OCCUR TO AA!

I doubt Abraham will repeat the off night he had against Froch.

When you have and underdog as powerfull and experienced as Abraham, truth is the final result of the fight is quite open.

Anyway, I agree Ward is the more talented and it is his fight to lose.

Agreed - Ward also tends fight inside, which IMO gives AA more opportunities than what Dirrell gave him and what Froch 100% denied from him. All of these guys (Dirrell-Froch-Ward) are superior when it comes to boxing skills, but AA has one gift and thatīs the cave-manlike raw punching power.

Iīd give AA a slight more chance of getting a KO-victory (he absolutely canīt win on points) against Ward than what AA had in Dirrell- or Froch-fights.

Ward is 85-15 favorite to win this one in my books.
