    Well he had to compliment his game with continually breaking the rules and home advantage so not that good.. no one gives a s*** about Ward.. I've never heard anybody say I'm going to go back and watch some of his fights .. & let's be honest he's most known for fighting a mid 30s Calzaghes sloppy seconds .. and even then had to cheat

    Ward was hella talented. But he's been built up like a some top 10 ATG with a particular crowd. HIs resume is not even that deep to begin with.

    Ward should have accepted when they sat down then. And if he could not due to his injury/promotional issues...were then all his 'offers' just fake posturing?? :sisi1

    He clearly didn’t think so. He was ready for Floyd at 160 and declined Golovkin at 164. Sorry, your hero doesn’t pass the test he made others take. He was unwilling to do it himself.

    Lil G could have fought him when Ward was 168 champion but as we all know Lil G only likes fighting smaller guys.

    Ward supposedly offered GGG at 168 LOL GGG countered with Youre supposedly a 168 fighter I;m 160 lefts make it 164 limit Ward bailed on that he couldn't have made 168 let alone 164 ROFL Ole Billy Goat Ball Basher was all mouth he'd only fight at home where he knew he could foul all night & get away with it. Even then he couldn't draw a crowd

    ROFLMAO If so why did all 3 need extra illegal "Help" to get decisions even though they only fought at home.
    I'll say it again about Floyd, if he'd had the stones to fight Antonio Margarito ,Tony would have beaten him like red headed stepchild & Floyd knew it . He saw what Tony did LEGITIMATELY to Cotto & freaked out when he saw Tony standing in front of him. So did Oscar LOL. Floyd would have been on skid row probably today
    Ho can you support Cowards & claim to be not only a boxing fan but a nephew of the great Azumah Nelson lol

    Ward was out for a a while w/ Injury Olu. He came back as a Lt HW. When they were sat down, why did Ward say No while 3G said yes? And WHY was Ward chasing A SMALLER GUY Olu? :lol:

    Everyone knows including Lil G that Ward would literally murder him but if it makes you feel good to think Lil G would have won then have at it because frankly it’s a pointless discussion. Everyone knows the truth.

    While I don't always agree with your take, you certainly bring a measure of consistency/perspective to your posts that is often lacking on here.

    Cheers, man!

    Cut that 'Everyone knows " bull****. If that's the game, everyone knows Andre just used 3G to boost himself, seeing that 3G was selling out LA/NY venues while Andre couldn't sell out a Chic Fil A in Oaktown if his autograph guaranteed a free chicken f'n sammich.

    You just want to say the same **** over and over. But i asked, WHEN was this fight able to be made??? Ward was out with shoulder injury and promoter issues. When he returned, it was at LtHW.

    Oh sure, Ward 'pretended' top offer 3G a fight when Lemieux was already signed. And Ward poopooed the 164, meet in the middle fight as well.

    You got nothing Olu....nothing.

    Like I said everyone knows the truth. You are one of the Lil G lovers who thought he was some sort of deity which he clearly was not. He is good but but not good enough. Even you know Ward would have slaughtered Lil G. He Lil G knew it and you know it as well deep in your heart.

    So, once again you have absolutely NOTHING to say, or contribute, in regards to the actual circumstances between the two. You are making it hella obvious you have NOTHING tpo back your opinion.

    Just wanna say the same ol fanboy garbage, "Well..HE KNOWS....:"

    Deity?? Go felate yourself fanboy, i never touted him and anything but the best MW of his era. I never claimed he'd beat all the other ATG MWs. So stop lying and acting like a jilted *****. I tried to play along and be nice to your self righteous ass, Mr. "Barrister and trainer" and nephew of Azumah Nelson :lol:
