    And Froch is the one that doesn't want the rematch. He'd lose even worse than the first fight. Groves was beating him in both matches, if not making it even.

    There are no off the wall assertions to be made when you make a statement like this. The fighters I named are greater than the fighters they have losses to. Just because they have a loss to said fighter doesn't make said fighter greater than what the other fighter has accomplished as a whole. Boxing is about accomplishments and Froch has more than Ward has seen by his resume.


    Once again an opponent does not need to be successful against all of his opponents in order to be considered greater even though Froch has only lost to 2 of his opponents he has fought the harder opposition of course he might have a loss here and there he is not the one fighting easier competition from the comfort of his home.

    Froch has also fought fighters with a varying array of styles on the world class stage Ward has not. Ward has also avoided fighters with styles he may be susceptible to by saying they haven't earned their shot while fighting lesser fighters. Ward also refuses to be drug tested . These factors for Ward do not make him a greater fighter than one who fights every top contender in the division avoiding no one and beating better competition than Ward. You cannot make it all about technique because styles make fights and every style doesn't work on every opponent. Wards style is all wrong for Froch but Froch is still the greater fighter.

    What is worse you discount Calzaghes win over Hopkins but not Wards over Kessler. At least Calzaghes win was legit and he beat the fighter trying to foul. Kessler was headbutted over 25 times tearing up his face. Ward does not have the power to do that with his fists. Ward should of been DQ. That fight was a travesty.

    And then you say...
    The answers are evident. Visit a gym. Get away from your computer. Discover athletics.

    Do you personally know me? No, so there is no need for slight jabs to feed your superiority complex. I assure you I am in great shape exceedingly above American standards.I am indeed American also.

    Forget this rematch. Froch is tailor made for Wards horrible style.

    Ward has only beaten guys tailor made for him plus the corpse of Chad Dawson, DeGale would expose him badly and have people wondering what all the fuss was about in the first place...

    We have a big time troll here! Whilst Degale has some skills, when you put the package together he is a fringe top 10 type of a guy - a pretty average fighter. Find a better fighter to troll with at least!

    Who has Ward ever faced with the slickness, skill and strength of DeGale...noone. He has feasted on face first euro brawlers, look at the one time he got put in with a decent skilled counterpuncher he nearly had his lights put out. Groves would also shatter Oakland glass real bad :deal

    unfortunately if ward ever gets himself back at the top of his game froch will likely be retired.

    it takes a highly selective take on reality to reach that conclusion, ignoring:

    froch was open to a rematch before ward sabotaged his own career.

    ward stated he would not travel to england because he reckoned he would get robbed.

    froch isn't the 1 who is inactive.

    I'm not getting into the past, I'm talking about now. Froch didn't say anything about Ward's inactivity, his promoter said that Ward doesn't bring in any money. Which is a reasonable excuse considering Froch already has a great resume and is looking for the biggest reward before retiring. And I think Froch loses worse now than he did last time, regardless what country they fight in.

    Why would he, Ward has been inactive for ages, has lots of external issues and has not had a chance to test the severity if any of the after effects of his injury's in later rounds vs a strong fighter. Ward maybe as strong as before but he may also be much much weaker for a while. It is impossible to tell until we see him fight again a few times.

    impossible to say, given we don't know how ward is now.

    but talking about now, whatever fast car says, ward is still unavailable, and had he remained active we'd be seeing a rematch.

    I'd expect the same. Ward to dominate. But don't write off the chances that inactivity could have hurt Ward- we've seen it happen plenty of times before.

    In the last two years he's had a single fight, the soft opponent Edwin Rodriguez.
