    Pleasantly surprised about this, Andre Ward never was appreciated enough.

    You need to have a passport to get a fighter of decade and actually leave Oakland.


    That rules ward out sadly.

    Great choice well deserved. Arguably the best resume of the decade.

    Inoue, Wilder|Fury are all undefeated & didn't have questionable wins

    If Ward, Mayweather & Pacman are not included due to focus on this decade, nothing is more impressive than Naoya Inoue Destructive run, no catchweights, no questionable decisions...just satisfying beat-downs

    Fighter of the decade in Oakland. I agree with that for sure.

    I'm relaxed you're the one hot and bothered that Ward won not me.

    Kessler was picked to school Andre Ward by all the so called experts. No one outside of Oakland gave ward a shot . Ward manhandled and exposed him.

    Abraham was considered a granite jawed cyborg with the heaviest hands in all of Europe and Ward treated him like a teenage sparring partner.

    Froch was the biggest star to come out of the UK since the Beatles and Ward won nearly every minute of every round of that fight.

    Say what you will about Bikia but he was a very underrated, rough and tumble fighter who was capable of giving any champion a tough fight....look no further than his fight against the great Joe Calzaghe

    Again, who would you pick over Ward during that stretch? And why?

    You think Ward cleaned out LtHvy?!?! By beating Kov, that's cleaning it out? And he didn't clean out 168 either. Bute, Andre and Anthony Dirrell were there to face. But if you think beating Kessler, Frosh, and Dawson constitutes cleaning out, that's on you.

    BTW, Bute wanted Ward after the S6. Ward didn't care to face him.

    Good choice, even though others could be made too. Too bad he wasn't more active, but most of the fights he had was quality challenges. Dismantling Froch and somewhat exposing Kovalev were his two best efforts and I can't really come to think of efforts of other fighters's that were clearly superior.

    Bute was a joke man you already know that. Ward beat the best at 168 and proved he was the best. Bute was unproven and didn't beat the best at 168. As soon as he stepped up he was exposed in grand fashion by Froch. If Ward had fought Bute he would have beaten him worse than PBF beat Gatti, it would have been funny to watch. Hell Ward has arguably the best resume of the decade and arguably the best resume at 168 in history.

    Dude... I don't give a **** about you're "Would have beaten WORSE than...." garbage, you say that **** too much. And the thing is, you don't know. Bute was good enough to give Ward a tough fight. But IF Bute was unproven, so ****ing what? WARD WAS UNPROVEN AS WELL prior to the S6. Should Ward have been left out too?

    Ward's resume at 168:
    Kessler
    Miranda (Did nothing at 168)
    Froch
    Dawson (Nothing at 168 but drained)
    Bika (Again nothing at 168)
    Arthur Abraham (average at best at 168)

    You guys really UP his resume, trying to say it's the best ever at 168. :lol: Add a controversial win over Kov @ 175, BEST IN THE DECADE?!?! :lol: Good grief...
