No.

He will most likely become the P4P #1 once a few names leave the sport. But he will never be mainstream (I expect, anyway).

Until he stops living off of Calzaghes leftovers, cans and weight drained fighters, nobody will care about Ward.

I don't know if American necessarily always has one face of boxing. There have been plenty of eras in which multiple fighters carried the sport, and I think another one is coming.

Ward is very quiet and humble, Broner is a Mayweather mini-me, and Gary Russell Jr. has a ton of tools.

Please don't, that is like looking into the mirror and saying "Candyman" three times. You will unleash something horrible.

In this case, Bailey with some boxrec warrior shit he has permanently saved and ready to cut and paste.

i think he will be well know, similar to Hopkins. everyone will know him, but will they PAY to see him? alot of people tuned in for his fight against Dawson. but, i dont think he'll make it to Mega Star status. but him knocking out Dawson is a good start. he has the potential because hes religious and a very nice dude. good guy/bad guy sells.

Absolutely not

After canelo butt****s cotto the canelo mania is going to rival DLH/Pac

that will overshadow any need for an american star

Broner is definitely going to take this place. Ward will not only be an evolved form of bhop in the ring but in popularity as well.
