I don’t think I questioned your belief or resolve. Perhaps it is worth considering, however, the only real facts that matter — the wins on Ward’s record. It is unlikely that any fighter in boxing today, with the total number of fights he’s contested, that have as many wins against legitimate top 5 opponents. Time will tell us about Ward and his place in history.

I didn’t mean Word champion, even though I think Ward is a paperchampion, I meant World champion:)

JE: legitimate wordl champion is the key here. I don’t recognize Ward as champion. Everytime I mention to Ward fans that rematches, has been seen before, in boxing, and that different results are the result, oftentimes, I get the Ward is the Smw king argument. Strange.

It clearly bothers you that he doesn’t get penalized for fouls — mostly because they don’t exist — and that his skill level is so clearly above the 168-175 pound competition. I don’t know if I am a big fan or not because Ward isn’t all that exciting to watch. His bout against Dawson was an exception. Nevertheless, a Gold medal, multiple clear wins over top competition, and his obvious maturity are evidence of something out of the ordinary. You talk about his “faux Christian” which, of course, is something you couldn’t possibly know. He hasn’t hidden behind his alphabet belts fighting ridiculous “mandatories.” He’s met the top competition and won in plain sight.

Ah, the resort of the defeated — claim your tormentor is a “cheat.” Of course all the crying won’t change who keeps winning — Andre Ward. Denigrate his religion if you wish, though it is not clear what that has to do with anything that happens in the ring. Just expect Ward to keep winning.

Are you really suggesting that Froch is better than Ward because he LOST to him so convincingly? Froch may in fact be the best fighter in the UK — certainly he’s the most accomplished when facing top-level world competition. He simply isn’t as good as Ward. You won’t hear Froch’s team legitimately seeking a rematch. His team knows his limits. Froch can make big money rematching with Kessler and Bute or perhaps venturing into the light-heavyweight division (of course Ward routed Kessler and beat the best light-heavy in the world). Wishing for another result won’t make it so. Ward is the only legitimate world champion at 168 no matter what any of the alphabets say.

JE: Where did you get the idea from that two fighters meeting each other, several times, the fight will be exactly the same, leaving out:

Froch finding Wards chin
Froch fighting like the animal he is, at home
Froch, by now, understanding Wards fightplan
Ward having a bad night
Neutral referee attending the fight
Ward being banned from holding, in the fight

One fight, and all is determined? Is this your logic. Mayweather, at his best, had power, Ward looks terrible, in the light of a younger Mayweather, but his few fans, thinks he is beyond rematches, strange …

Lot of rewriting of history on this thread. Neither Froch nor Kessler ever came close to beating Ward. Both are solid fighters but Ward is the only champion at 168. Whether the fight is in Oakland or London or Copenhagen, Ward will come out on top. He just has too much of everything for Froch and Kessler (and everyone else at 168-175. Proof is in the results.

Why do I think that both Froch and Kessler have a great chance against Ward outside of Oakland? Its a new fight, as simpl as that. Both these powerhouses needs only one punch to take out Ward, and he knows it.

Furthermore …

5 headbutts accidental? Watch them on Youtube, in slow motion. Holyfield and Hopkins are masters at the accidental injury game. Fair play, I have not seen Ward headbutting since stealing Kesslers belt. Kessler was surprised by the acceptance of holding and hitting that the Oakland referee closed his eyes to.

Still talking about Ward vs Kessler eh? I was there and in person Ward’s head butts looked like purposeful butts disguised as accidental, ala Holyfield. Just because he’s a devout Christian doesn’t mean he won’t get dirty in the ring because boxing is a dirty game. Either way Ward clearly won.

Posted April 12, 2013 6:06 pm

Well I also recall Kesslers head going into Wards also it was just Kessler who came out with the cuts. Ward never purposely used his head and I don’t believe Kessler did either but when you have 2 guys coming forward throwing punches then there is a good chance your heads will come together. And when they got tied up Kessler was hoping for the ref to break them while Ward went to work on the inside.

you guys better get used to Ward because I don’t see’im losing anytime soon…there’s nobody at 168 to threaten his tight reign ; he’ll beat Froch & Kessler again-easier this time around & Bute is not match- Martinez & Golovkin could give’im a fight at a catch-weight but he’d prevail there also…canadian-Haitian-Adonis Stevenson is a murderous puncher & could be an interesting foe but I think he’s too crude for Ward so we’ll have Ward for years to come…get used to it, fellows.

Who cares about Ward’s new status, well I would not care less, if it was not for Ward stealing Kessler’s Belt, in one of the dirtiest wins, in recent times, within boxing. Ward may have won that fight without the headbutting that tore Kesslers face apart, but we never got to see a fair fight. And what is it with the no rematch possible game that Wards camp and few fans are crying about. Pacman and Marquez has fought 5 times, until now. Marquez found a way against one of my favorite boxers Pacman. Froch vs Kessler 2 = deeply intriguing/WBC giving everything to Ward = deeply uninteresting. I do respect Ward, for his ring intelligence, and movement.

Ward is the champ and he is the truth. 168 pound class does have good fighters in it. Anybody who says Kesslwr and Froch are not good then don’t know the sport of boxing. Not only that but he dominated the current light heavy champ in Dawson. He takes away your strengths and exposes your weakness. In the Kessler fight he dominated him on the inside cause Kessler is not a great inside fighter. Ward is one of the smartest fighters in the game

What? Andre Ward is the undefeated super middleweight champion of the world. Ward is the Lineal, WBA and WBC champion and only needs the IBF and WBO world title belts to get them all. Seriusly this is crap. Evrey one knows that ANdre Ward is the best super middleweight fighter in the world and should not get his WBC belt downgraded/taken like that. There is no super middleweight out there who can defeat him so in other words – Carl Froch’s IBF belt and Robert Stieglitz’s WBO belts should be Ward’s belts becouse they don’t dare fight him.

Typical. awaiting moderation. Lucky I copied it this time.. accidentally typed a blue word in the right order first time round.

I’ve got some examples of world champions catering to challengers. Try Mikkel Kessler flying all the way over to Jokeland to get stitched up, figuratively and literally, by SOG’s PED’d up billy goat skull and his own personal corrupt referee. What about Carl Froch going over to take on Jermain Taylor in Connecticut? What about Lucian Bute coming all the way over to the UK to take on the Cobra in Nottingham?

And Froch fought Ward in the USA you stupid dumb $%&!. It’s Ward’s home country where he’s ALWAYS guaranteed to have a conveniently blind referee to preside over his fights and let him fight to his own set of rules. It’s also just so happens to be the undisputed p4p capital of PED abuse and ever so conveniently Ward just so happens to be working with the world’s most notorious supplier of undetectable PEDs in the history of the sport. You do realize they do Olympic style testing in Germany don’t you? I wonder why he had it written into his contract that none of his fights in the Super Six should take place outside the USA aka PED Central? LMFAO

If a champ can’t fight and can’t defend his title, he should be required to forfeit it then earn it back when he can fight again. Injuries are a part of the sport of boxing and they come with a price that’s often more than just the injury itself. Otherwise, there are two WBC champions at the same time and that’s just not fair. You know, if you’re a NASCAR driver and you have a wreck and injuries which put you out for the season, you lose points towards the overall championship and that’s that. The less you race, the less chance you have to win a championship. Should be the same for boxing. Andre ( or any other champ in his position) should be required to forfeit the title(s) and dropped to the #1 contender spot, as long as he is not out for more than a year. Meanwhile, the other top contenders can go for a championship belt that really means something. After all, what king of the hill wants to share his crown?

Hush your beak with that crap Tark. Ward headutted the crap out ogf Kessler and deliberately fought an extremely dirty fight against him because he knew that Kessler was his most difficult obstacle on route to the final. He wa being the same disingenuous calculating piece of crap he always is.. He knew he could make that fight a hell of a lot less difficult if he cheated like a mofo. He played his joker fight dirty as hell card because he knew could get away with if he had home advantage and they a conveniently blind American ref in tow to turn a blind eye to all his cheating crap. He didn’t just use his head like a battering ram, he also did tons of that ILLEGAL excessive holding crap to neutralize Kessler’s offensive capabilities too. He also used elbows, low blows, hitting and holding and punching on the break. Like his ”mentor and idol”, Ward as dirty as hell and he specializes in making fouling look less obvious or accidental and you know it. Check out that gif of him trying to slice Froch’s eye up with one of the most flagrant elbows you’ll ever see.

Dawson requested a 170 catch weight but even though he, as per usual, had every other advantage in his favour, as he always needs to have before he dares sign on the dotted line, Ward refused. Even if he agreed to a 169 catch weight (a mere 1lb) he could’ve won all of Chad’s belts. But like I said, he wanted Dawson as drained as possible because he’s a calculating fraud who wants it all his own way all the time, which he has had since the start of the Super Six when it was set up for him to win. He was the only fighter in a competition where the home fighter never lost who never travelled. He had all of his fights within the protective sanctuary of the US and American referees in all of them, 3 of them just so happened to be fellow Californians too. Anyone with half a brain knows how much of an advantage having a home country ref is, especially for extremely dirty fighters like Ward who’s style is HEAVILY reliant on lots of excessive use of illegal holding.

Personally i think Dirrell has the tools to beat Ward, but he also has a coward living inside of him. I also think that Ward fighting outside the US doesnt get away with holding and head-butting and his other Hopkins-esque tactics. When he got off the floor against Boone, alot of refs would have stopped the fight because he was soo wobled. Then when he held onto Boones arms like a scared child for the last 20 or so seconds of the round, ANY ref in the UK would have stopped the fight. If he had gone down like that any earlier in the round his night was over. And it wasnt even one of Boones big shots!

The best boxer @ 168 lbs, though not the most exciting one. Ward’s movment, good eye, ability to pace himself, stamina, and technical skills are exceptional. I can’t see anybody @ 168 lbs giving him real problems. On the other hand, seeing Froch duke it out with e.g. soon Kessler is more exciting, because Froch CAN be hurt and nevertheless is aggressive as hell. The best boxer at a weight class is not always the one fans like most. But if you want to train a young boxer, showing him what Ward does and how he does it is always a good idea!

Posted April 12, 2013 7:22 am

The one thing that for me sets him apart is his movement speed, he really moves like a super feather weight is a sight to behold, this to me is his biggest advantage as Froch like most opponents he faces was just a second behind everything he did but also Froch tried to box him which was a bad idea ,he should just have came out and set about him like he did to Bute, yes I am a Cobra fan and he beat Carl fair and square but he should also return the favour and fight him in England.

Froch did not Ward, Ward go KO’d by Darnell Boon do you forget about that? go back and watch the ref give Ward all the time in the world to get up from the knock-down and stumble back to his corner o anthe planet, he was down for 14 secs!!!!

Sorry Tark but Ward did duck Bute. And you are correct that Bute ducked the super 6 citing tv deal obligations. Ward ducked Bute because Bute was massively hyped, yet somewhat unproven, and Ward wanted to see what he had. Froch showed he has bigger go-nads than Ward by jumping on Butes management and getting the fight. Ward is the best SMW, and his achievements are remarkable, but the fact that he was wary of Butes reputation, and his unwillingness to travel cannot just be ignored.

Ward didn’t duck Bute.. Bute ducked the Super Six.. Bute was no threat to Ward as Froch clearly demonstrated by whipping him like a cheap sparring partner. Bute didn’t even enforce the return match with Froch, which was in their contract. He wants no more of Froch. Dawson offered to come down to 168, saying making the weight was, “Not a problem.” Whet is Ward to do? Say, “No Chad, Let me come up to 175 since I’m bigger and stronger than you.” As for head butting. He trashed Froch, Dawson, and Kessler, who all said he’s the best fighter they ever faced. 95% of the shots he landed in those fights were delivered with his fists, and not with his forearms, elbows, shoulders, or bonker. He’s a tough infighter who can box masterfully when he has to.

Ward, Berto, and Donaire should get rid of Victor Conte immediately if they haven’t already. The man is a fast talking, charismatic fraudster who lies through his teeth — and then brags about hoiw he wraps victims around his finger with his various well honed sales pitches. These men will leave brittle hands, torn muscles, and various physical problems behind once they quit all of Conte’s nutritional supplement and gas breathing programs.

mayweather’s disliked too, but it doesn’t stop him from being one of the best p4p fighters in the sport

In other words the WBC will not wait for Ward to collect their sanctioning fees

Ward is a Class Act. He is an example of the best in boxing.

Based on this the WBC belt is up for grabs until Ward can fight again. As the WBC have nobody of note in their upper rankings the Froch Kessler fight should be elevated to include the WBC title. That of course won’t happen though because it makes sense and the powers that be in boxing make anything but sense.

Doesn’t matter, Andre Ward is the champion, he should disregard all belts but the ring magazine

Mikkel Kessler aka one of the nicest guys in the sport & one of the least dirty also sustained some really nasty injuries to his eyes that very nearly put and end to his career. Kessler is a true ambassador of the sport of boxing and an example to the youth of the world.
