    Ward was solid and considered an ATG at 168 mostly bc its a meh division historically. Nonetheless Ward would be a fight for any ATG at 168.

    Typical Lil G fanboy. When losing the argument resort to insults. I just laugh at your BS. It’s not worth my valuable time.

    What the heck are you talking about? I asked you a specific question regarding the timeline for 3G v Ward, and you reply with '3g knows he would lose...." You claim to be a barrister, then use your words and education FFS. Formulate a proper sentence as to WHEN it was possible to have this made.

    You say it's not worth your time because you have NOTHING. C'mon barrister....provide something of substance. Otherwise, it seems you aren't fit to defend a jaywalker FFS....

    Dirrell had to bow out through injury if I remember correctly. Shame that fight never happened.

    Well, you made a statement re: 3G and Ward, I asked you a specific question. Then you turned in to an 11yo coward turd.

    Why not just have given a proper response?? Ignore me, i'll still call out your poser ass when i see fit. Now go catfishing or whatever it is internet cowards like you do in the freetime.... I don't know, scam and spam facebook or whatever.

    I think I scored the Kovalev fight for Kovalev but the fact that he fought Kovalev in a fight that could go either way at Kovalevs peak is a testament to how good he was. He had a great resume at 168 as well.

    Solid.

    Very decent, especially as a 168 pounder.

    But not an ATG.

    He got a gift against Kovalev, in the first bout, and low blowed his way to a 'victory' in the second.

    That's pretty much his entire LHW legacy, that plus two other journeymen.

    So he was the all-time third or fourth best SMW .

    That's nothing to sneeze at.

    But the man gets over-rated on these boards.




    PS.

    He was a very dirty fighter.

    I've often said that Andre Ward is like a young version of Old Bernard.

    VERY overrated and had to resort to corruption and fouling to beat a past it Kovalev. That’s undeniable.

    Also seemed to retire at a real convenient time too didn’t he!
