I’ve already written a reply addressing the first part of your comment but it’s awaiting moderation. Regarding Ward being a cheat, his flagrant use of dirty tactics, and the advantageousness of home advantage, well firstly, Ward is a very dirty fighter and it’s not open for debate. Anyone who tries to dispute that is either A. a moron, or B. clearly has an agenda. Why don’t you tell me how many times Kessler’s had a problem with cuts in his career? And yet when he fights Billy Goat Hopkins disciple Ward his face ends up looking like it had been put through a ham slicer? lol. He’s stuck the nut in on a lot of his other opponents too. I guess you must’ve missed all the EXCESSIVE holding he does in all his fights too? lol. And the low blows, use of the elbow, and all those downward arcing shots he throws to the kidney in the clinch as well? What about him hitting on the break as well? The worst thing about it is he’s the first one to cry to the referee if someone gives him a little taste of his own medicine. In fact, oftentimes he’ll actually commit a foul and then immediately look at the referee and try and make out it was his opponent who fouled him. He’s a dirty as hell but he tries to make out he’s all sweet and innocent even though everyone knows he’s filthy as the underside of a pig. That’s another reason why I don’t like him…. Home ADVANTAGE is a massive advantage, especially for dirty fighters like him and Hopkins. What do you think the ‘advantage’ stands for in that? And there are numerous factors why it’s so advantageous, reference some of my other posts regarding this if you want to know what they are? he was the only fighter in a competition where the home fighter won every time out who never had to travel. All 5 of his fights were at home, 4 of which in his home state. I’m getting sick to my teeth of going over this with his fans.. they know I’m right too but most of them won’t admit to it because they either have nationalistic or racial agendas.

I feel the same way about calzaghe, dude had all but 4-5 fights at home or in places that loved him dearly and when he did venture away to fight it was against old dudes. People have the nerve to call JC an ATG, yeah right! Imagine a fight between JC and Ward, Laughable!

I wonder why you guys even watch fights where a guy has to move up or down in weight because if he loses you are going to attribute it to the weight?????? Whats the damn point in the first place and don’t tell me moving up is “no big deal” because there are not a ton of multi-division champs around boxing due to the realities of facing bigger men… Dawson lost fair and square, he had all the time and expertise in the world to lose 7 pounds and he got his ass beat by a better fighter… PERIOD

UJelly?

That’s true, but I’d still pick Ward to do a number on Dawson at Light Heavy… I wouldn’t imagine it’d be a stoppage though. Just a fairly comfortable UD.
It’s really Dawson’s own fault for putting the catchweight out there. As far as I know, Ward never asked for it, Dawson offered it.

I like Ward and I also know that Dawson was weight drained, he was out of gas after round 3. He tried to fight through it, it wasn’t happening. Wards timing was great after being cause with a couple of right hooks, he was able to predict Dawsons right hook and fire his own inside. Eliminating the only weapon Dawson had that was working’ hat’s off the ward but he still fought a weight drained Dawson. I hope that if Ward fights Dawson for his titles it a 175 and not a catch weight, because the tile is for the 175 pound weight limit. If ward weighs in at 170 allow Dawson to come in at 175. That the way Floyd did it for De La Hoya.

The real difference betwen the 2 is that Ward had a fire in the belly, Dawson just didn’t seem to have the fighter’s urgency to hurt the opponent. Ward really wanted this one, and fought like it.

So many rank amateurs attributing Wards success to where he crushed Dawson… Chad has fought away from New Haven most of his career and he NEVER was made to look like that…. What top Champ is going to make all the concessions to his challenger??? Wards belts were on the line against a bigger boxer who came in a full 9 pounds heavier and got destroyed… Reality is that Ward made Dawson quit in a career defining performance excuses are unecessary….Froch, Dawson and Kessler could fight Ward in their hometowns on the same night and he would still whip all their asses…. Dude is WAY better than the pack and it has been proven….

to think that fighting at home makes all of the difference you are truely slow, he beat all of the top european fighters in the super six, and didn’t have much trouble doing it. If the fights were close I could see your point, keep reaching. I’m done here this sight has become a joke with the posters. The write have become much worse, it a down hill slide on a once great sight. You guy have fun with your bias opinions, nothing based on boxing history just bias ignorance.

Face It: the “S.O.G” is the Truth. virtually untouchable IN Oaktown. i wouldn’t mind seeing him take his show on the road but the superior achievement for the truly superior fighter is to topple Ward at home and, if necessary, repeat the feat within the year. that’s the path to greatness. Hell(?!), Salido did it and i don’t think he’s even considered to be that “great”(?!). he certainly isn’t a common item on anybody’s P4P lists. “expert” or otherwise.

Golovkin is tough and skilled but, too short and slow for Ward. His style isn’t difficult to figure out for Ward. Ward abuses this guy and finishes him off before 12.

I know you’ve been on this sight for several years now and you know people are going o discredit Wards win by saying the weight drop of Dawson was a factor in the victory. That’s why I posted down below that I wish Ward would have moved up and fought in Dawsons backyard so there would be no doubt about his win. I personally believe Ward would beat Dawson at 175 anywhere in the world.

correction: in fact, with so little trouble, i could understand Ward’s lack of motivation to do it all over again BUT i don’t doubt his ability to do so IF he chose to do so once again.

“He will have trouble against everybody in the smw division . . .” (lol). Ward just swept through the best of the smws, european and otherwise, with little trouble. in fact, with so little trouble, i could understand Ward’s lack of motivation to do it all over again BUT i don’t doubt his to do so IF he chose to do so once again. Face It: at the moment, for the time being, and for the foreseeable future, Ward is untouchable.

Gonzo The Dragonborn

This is beyond nauseating. This must be the most hollow victory in the history of sports. Like MANY of us had predicted beforehand, Dawson was completely dead at the weight and he had as much right dropping back down to a weight he hadn’t fought at in almost 7 years as I do of asking my mother to get her boob out and let me suckle from her teat. Dawson was literally walking corpse.. he looked like a zombie with AIDS and he had nothing left after the third round. His punch output was utterly abysmal and his punch resistance non-existent. He was so weakened by making the weight that he was getting wobbled by weak ass jabs of the weakest puncher in the division. Ward hasn’t registered a KD over a world class super-middleweight in his life and yet he dropped and stopped a fighter who had stood up to taking huge shots of big punching light-heavyweights who punch MUCH harder than Ward. lol. Some of you cats are so gullible it’s untrue. Dawson had been knocked cold in sparring by a completely shot to smithereens Edison Miranda. lol. That’s how weak he was at the weight. I wouldn’t have minded if Dawson was actually throwing and missing but he couldn’t even muster the strength to throw a handful of weak-ass shots per round. He he was utterly devoid of energy, slow and lethargic and his when he could muster the strength to throw a shot it was totally devoid of snap. This was CLEARLY nowhere near the same Dawson who fights in his natural weight division, why the hell do you think Ward refused to fight him up a his weight? He wouldn’t even agree to a catch weight of 170 because he wanted Dawson to be as weak as possible. He could’ve picked up his belts at 175 and gained major kudos for doing so if he was so confident of beating a healthy Dawson, but he wouldn’t contemplate the thought of it because he knew he was a totally different proposition at his own weight. Ward is a conman and he’s got so many of you fooled. He refused to enter the Super Six unless all his fights in it took place at home because he knew how crucial home advantage is for dirty fighters who spend more time holding, leading with the head, butting like a deranged billy goat, elbowing, throwing low blows, punching to the kidneys, and lunging in and grabbing a hold of his opponents almost every time after he’s thrown a shot to stop them from, god forbid, connecting with a counter. He had American referees for every single one of his fights in the competition, 3 of which ever so conveniently just so happened to be fellow Californians (unbelievable!), He was the only fighter in a competition where the home fighter never lost who never travelled. lol. Not once did he have to contend with all the numerous great disadvantages and hardships away fighters have to contend with when fighting on the road. Not once! Everyone else in the tournament did, some multiple times. Froch had 1 fight at home and 4 on the road, whereas Ward had 5 at home and 0 away. What a joke!

I agree -no credit to Ward, again. As Patrick says, Dawson had all his strenghts taken away from him, and there was not much strenght there anyway, but the misunderstanding is that Ward met a truly handicapped boxer. It is clearly stupid to make Ward into something he is not. A top 3 smw boxer. He will have trouble against everybody in the smw division, if he goes to europe. I believe that even Stieglitz could create a fight with Ward in europe. I don’t know anybody here in europe who recognizes Ward, in any way, shape or form. He fights like an amateur, he can’t punch. Better keep him away from topboxers outside of Oakland, right:) Do remember that I see Ward as a good tecnical boxer in the amateur way.

Ward forgot how to LOSE at 12 yrs old and Dawson remembered how to lose just a few Fights ago. Ward is THE SHARK of 168 and one of the few SHARKS in the ENTIRE Sport of Boxing……Dawson challenged the SHARK in his own waters and got chewed UP.

Posted September 9, 2012 12:58 pm

Maybe it would be closer but the weight is just one factor among many others. The fact that Dawson isn’t SO skilled (without underestimating him at all) is the biggest one,

Posted September 9, 2012 12:54 pm 


te tumbo

simply masterful performance and win for Ward. he successfully and decisively defends his 168lb turf from the challenge of the 175lb champion. Ward may have just topped his recent accomplishment of sweeping his own talent-laden division clean of All rivals(?!). this was the equivalent of Mayweather’s demolition of Corralles and just as portentious. Ward is already a complete fighter who can’t help but get even better. everything else is academic. an additional 7lbs would not have spared Dawson the primetime beating he received from Ward last night: “S.O.G!-S.O.G!-S.O.G!”

Posted September 9, 2012 12:29 pm

I agree! As much as I like Ward, I wish he would leave no doubt in fans minds. A very good win could have been considered a great win if Ward had moved up and fought in Dawsons back yard. There would be no question! Ward is good but, a fighter must do the little things that make a good fighter great.

I understand Ward did what he was supposed to do…win the fight…and he did it in a very convincing fashion. I’d like to eco Dawson when he said he didn’t want to take anything away from Ward; in other words, his coming down on weight didn’t have anything to do with the outcome.

I don’t want to take anything away from Ward either because, after all, it was a great win, but one must wonder how much the weight issue had to do with the outcome. For the most part, it’s easier to go up in weight than to come down in weight; and 10 pounds is a huge difference when it comes to boxing.

I do believe that Dawson was affected by the weight to the point where his body couldn’t respond. However, there’s a way to find out though if that was the cased. During the post-fight interview, Ward was asked if he was willing to fight at 175 and his answer, so a little mixed, appeared to be a decisive yes. I was waiting for Larry to ask him if he was willing to fight Dawson at 175…that would have been the perfect question.

By the way, I would still take Ward over Dawson at 175, though I believe it would be a much closer fight than what we saw yesterday.

Ward looked like a man in the ring against a boy, Dawson did NOT look like he was the guy with 6 or 7 more professional bouts and nights out against Tarver, Johnson, Adamek and Hopkins… He looked befuddled, overmatched, out thought, outfought and out classed…. This was a defining performance the likes of which many boxers never have during their career, naysayers will manufacture excuses galore but Ward exceeded even the MOST lofty expectations by a WIDE margin…. 3kds and a stoppage were not even up for discussion….Amazing

It isn’t always the power that drops an opponent it can be the sneakiness of the punch/es. The one’s you don’t expect/see coming, the ones you’re unable to roll with, are the ones that do the damage. Case in point: the ones Ward hit Dawson with — so stop with the BS weight-drained argument. Ward was the better boxer and he proved it.

Please don’t discredit Ward’s accomplishment — he took his opponent’s/Dawson’s strengths away and imposed his will — just like a great champion does. So give it up for Andre, he just vaulted himself to the top half of the very competitive PfP rankings. Now we ask, who’s left that Ward that he hasn’t already beaten or would be competitive enough to take on the challenge that is SOG?

Posted September 9, 2012 10:15 am 


get real

Dawson is an average fighter, very ordinary in a weak light heavyweight division. The weight wouldn’t have mattered, Ward would have had the same result. The advice from Dawson’s corner was more cheer leading than technical advise, and nothing was said he could use, By the time Scully told him he needed a ko to win, Dawson was done and for him to quit the way he did, says he’s in there for the money only. How could Dawson speak of still being light heavyweight champ after such a poor performance. He got tired and didn’t look prepared properly and didn’t fight with any fire. All praise goes to Andre Ward and team for preparing properly and being the classiest act in boxing. He gave thanks to Jesus Christ first, and unlike many athletes who speak of the Lord, Andre lives it.

I’m real dissapointed in Chad’s performance. ITs one thing to get outboxed…fine that ish can happen, but to not step out of your confort zone and sell out when the fight was obviously lost on points was just something I can’t go with. Chad is waaaaay too cautious in the ring…even Mayweather steps up his aggressiveness when he senses a challenge in the ring. I guess its just not in Chad’s mental makeup. He has all the tools physically but is lacking that something all the greats have that make them….great

Andre Ward clearly established himself as the future of American boxing no fighter in the sport boasts a recent run and level of domination over top comp like this absent Mayweather and Pacquiao….Ward could likely go down as one of the Greatest SMW fighters ever based on the type of guys he is beating and how he is beating them…. This is not a guy beating up a collection of 40 year olds… Kessler, Froch, Dawson and Abraham were all in their prime…. Hats Off!

Boring? What fight were you wathcing? Featherfisted you call Ward? It’s obvious you don’t know a thing about boxing and punching Power, Anytime one Man can take his Fist and go up side another Man’s head and knock him on his Ass that’s Power. Last night Dawson was the Bigger and Taller Man out weighed Ward by ten to twelve pounds, However Ward was the Stronger, Faster and Smarter fighter. Boxing is a Thinking man’s Game it’s about Hitting and taking the least fire in Return. Andrea Ward put on a Beautiful Display of his Boxing Skills and Abilities last night. No doubt Chad Dawson is an Excellent Fighter and a Good and Decent young man, However Andrea Ward was the Better Man last night.

This fight reminded me a little bit of Hatton vs Mayweather. The only difference is that the referee didn’t let Hatton do his work on the inside against Mayweather. But in this fight the referee allowed Ward to do so which I think was a good thing for him. He was impressive!

Dawson didn’t lose because he was drained or because he fought in Ward’s back yard. Dawson lost because Ward was smarter, faster, and better. Dawson had no answers for Ward and neither did Dawson’s corner. Dawson resigned himself to defeat by the end of the fifth round. You could see it in his eyes. It was a masterful performance by Andre Ward.

An expected victory. It’s very rare for anyone to drop weight and expect to do well against an opponent who is gaining with weight, strength
and new-gained skills. Dawson was never the same after Pascal beat him down. Lots of thinking to do for Dawson, left only as a gate-keeper at this stage.
I wouldn’t be surprises if Hopkins requests a triad to gain face.
