Default Re: Andre Ward vs Bob Fitzsimmons

Fitz is in my top 5 all time. He was in my top 3 but I have a newfound appreciation for Armstrong.

Fitz can end any fighter from cruiser and below with one punch, but there's no doubt that Ward is on another skill level.

People say Ward is inexperienced but he's already an olympic medalist, unified champion and the greatest smw in history.

Ward fighting on the front foot will allow Fitz chances to set the trap but that aside Ward should take it on points, maybe surviving a shaky moment here and there.

Fitz has a punchers chance but the reality is that skillwise we're talking about different levels of fighter's.

The super six has been responsible for the gross overestimating of numerous decent 168 fighters on this board imo.and i say that as a Froch convert.

I guess in a good way it shows how the we're willing to put fighters who take meaningful fights against the better fighters available on a pedestal, but on the other hand the inherent ability of a few of these guys have been overstated imo.

Ward doesn't have any better a record than someone like Eubank if you're talking about the quality of fighters faced and defeated imo, though you could argue he's taking more meaningful fights(comfy home advantage dumbs it down a bit though) and is part of a crop of fighters more willing to take risks.

Iīm a big Ward fan...and this is 100% correct IMO as well.....

With that said, I donīt like to compare a guy like Fitz with a current fighter like Ward......I understand people voting for Ward here, but IMO it is too early yet to compare with someone like Fitz...
