ward refused to engage with abraham early on and went into shell mode,and king arthur was able to land on him,again ward bores us to death looking average doing so, imagine what calzaghe would do to abraham (froch schooled and toyed with abraham much easier than ward)...

he was clininging on for dear life against a short notive inactive past peak bika...

people over egg the kessler win massively,he was a beaten beltless inactive fighter at the time with a major sight problem and even then ward had to use dirty tactics. its funny how calzaghe beats a peak kessler and both are labelled eurobums,ward does it aginst a shell and hes p4p no.3

is this the best you've got?

i really am leaning toward froch winning the tourny,he gets better and better,ward gets worser and worser.

ward to win the tourny via robbery decision over froch.

Doubt it. He'd have to be A LOT more entertaining... like go on a brutal KO rampage. Plus there's no Oscar De La Hoya equivalent for him to beat and to hand him down the torch.

Oscar had Chavez, Pac and Money had Oscar. If somebody doesn't beat one of those guys, it will be a looooooooooooong time before a boxing event comes close to a million buys after they hang em up.

His only hope is to become a Floyd-like character. I can't see him building a large fan base, American fighters almost never have big fan bases these days

Nobody really hates him though. Thats the problem. People are pissed that he has had all his fights at home, but they also realise that hes an exceptional talent. People just don't "care" enough to invest in him like they do with Cotto, Pacquiao etc...

If he keeps winning against top opponents he has a chance. The biggest problem for him is that he is dull in and outside of the ring.
