    Depends.

    Will he get away with Kovaleving him? You know, low blows, elbows etc. If so then yes, Ward wins several rounds and probably the fight. If not then I'd favor Calzaghe but no matter what, Ward would find a way to take some rounds.

    Well..where they gonna fight? Oaktown? I hate to say, but I think that would be a big factor. Is the ref going to allow Ward to low blow AGAIN?

    Andre is all wrong for Joe too.

    See the Hopkins, Reid and Bika fights.

    Win a round?

    Ha!

    It would have been a true 50/50 fight.

    The rare times I've watched a Ward fight I'm always left thinking all it's lacking is a submission hold and 5 minute rounds.. ive seen less dry humping in a GSP fight

    Only if punches below the belt are allowed, otherwise Joe wins a UD

    Ward had headbutts and low blows as part of his arsenal. Ward fights like an OG UFC fighter.

    It would be competitive but I see Joe pulling away as the fight gets to the later rounds
    Yeah Hopkins got some good shots off in his fight but simply got outworked and spent a lot of rounds doing very little other than to try and spoil. Ward didn't have the best gas tank at Super Middle and Joe would present a work rate and ability to adjust that Ward hadn't faced.

    Hope he wouldn’t, never cared for Ward’s style or dirty tactics
