    Two brothers, Two styles.

    One went the distance with Leonard. One went life and death with Arturo Gatti.

    Who takes this in the battle of the brothers.

    I love MIcky Ward, but I would favor Eklund that fought Leonard over 10 rounds. Eklund would be awkward enough to keep the stronger, Iron chinned Ward of balance for the majority of the fight. The longer the fight goes the more you have to favor Micky, if it was 15 I think Ward connects with his body shots and finishes Eklund.

    It is a styles fight. Micky and his brother were actually quite the combo.

    Love it.

    Ward was more proven (even in losing many times) at top level but Ecklund was bigger and more skilled as a boxer.

    I think he mostly jabs and moves his way to a decision over 10.
