So you think it was a clear 120-108 with no close rounds for a clinic do you

8-4 isnt a clinic even if like me you saw Ward as a winner

Ward 9-3.

There was never any moment where it seemed Froch would or could win.

Whos these most guys?
Some nuthuggers or commentary, because it certainly wasnt two of the judges, who saw a close fight, which it was

Froch couldn't stop Ward's left hook. I think he came in a little too top heavy that night, intent on man handling Ward.
You back tracking now?
Stop sitting on the fence and trying to make friends, call it as you see it

Fair enough, not a clinic and some very close rounds, where I think some were taken on Ward looking composed and by leaning on Froch rather than doing anymore

Eh, kind of a "clinic" when considering this is ESB and word choice is at a premium.

I thought Ward dominated the first half of the fight. Almost all of the later rounds were close, but that includes the rounds which Froch seemed to edge as well.

showtime were horribly bias. My favourite line was when ward looked at the clock in the last round, a sign that you want the fight to be over, the commentary team said "Andre Ward Looking at the clock, Time Management is also one of skills!" Haha.

Certainly not a clinic but a win it was. You see a clinic to me is when a fighter closes out a fight and wins all rounds or better still stops his opponent.

Calzaghe vs lacey was a clinic and more recently broner vs demarco.

Ward won comfortable on the cards but the fight was anything but easy for him, froch was getting to him in the 9th round, the tenth i gave to froch but it could have been even or a ward round. I then gave froch the last 3, with andre looking gassed and hurt.

I expect to be bombarded with gay comments about Wards hand but like i have said previous, he injured his hand in a fight, big ****ing deal. He may of hurt it before the fight, just in the same way as he may be looking to provide an even bigger excuse for falling away at the end of the fight. Considering all the smoke and bull**** concerning his s6 contract and further bull**** in regards to the bute fight not being realised, I am not surprised folk don't buy into him.

Not American. And I never said it, no. It's a slight advantage, mentally, but Ward still schools Froch anywhere on the planet.
