    How great would this fight be if Canelo beats Kovalev. I would love to see Canelo call Ward out, because true be told that's the only way I see Ward coming out of retirement. I would have to say it would be a 50/50 fight in terms of who would win, because of Ward inactivity. Had Ward been active up until now, and still undefeated my money would go on him 100%. Should these two fight now, how would this fight play out?

    Ward stops him late. From a body shot.

    Ward by an ugly UD, but the judges might give Canelo a draw or a razor close MD/SD.

    If Ward ever was to come back I would like to see him face Gvozdyk/Bivol/Berterbiev....he got out quick to avoid these monsters.

    well this should be an interesting debate seeing as some of the people who thought canelo only beat 3g by cheating judges/ref are some of the same people who think ward only beat Kov by cheating/judges/ref.

    So whom does their theory apply to in this case? aha. Some fakers will be exposed in their answers.

    Since I've said on here for years that Kovalev and Ward both beat Golovkin, it's a no-brainer for me.

    Tainted beef or not
    Illegal wraps or not
    Two corrupt judges
    A corrupt commission
    Millions of dollars for all
    Catchweight?
    Rehydration clause?
    What would it actually take for golden boy to make that fight?

    Ward would have the advantage in most things, and that means probably a one sided fight if you take the size into account. Probably mid to late round stoppage..

    I would say that this is potentially the fight with the top hated fighters around the internet, seeing any of them lose would be a big achievement for all the internet trolls. I don't like them too, but there is no doubt that they are skillful and I don't mind watching them. I think Ward will crush Canelo.

    Ward completes Canelo in 6 or 7 levels. Canelo is a tutorial level fight for Ward.

    Andre Ward wins this one over Canelo Alvarez. Andre Ward inactive, would get ready for such a big fight, and would fight a very tactical fight against Canelo. Ward is quick and can punch very hard, and he demonstrates good ring generalship in all of his fights. He kayoed Kovalov with a very brutal punch to the body. Alvarez will be exploring this weight class, while Ward already has. Provided no catch weight meant to handicap Andre, I see Ward stopping Canelo in round 11 from a variety of swift hard punches to the head and body. Canelo does not fare well against fast boxers, such as Floyd Money Mayweather.
