finish line

Andre Ward is a bore. Andre Ward cant hurt anyone. Ward fights at home for home field protection. He now cherry picks to protect that weak O and now he is running from Adonis who is the true challenge. Ward is so called this great fighter but Why———– who has he on a record worth anything. Only fighter to be champ without one super fight, has never fought a true challenge who is udfeated or is worth a big name to later be in the hall of fame. Ward= weak

Kessler had SOOOOOO much more experience than Ward and he got schooled… The man simply was not ready for a guy who was not gonna stand and fight that stiff Euro style.. Kessler was a veteran who should have been able to adjust, but Ward proved to be on a level he had really never dealt with…All the whining and sympathy over incidental contact only makes Kesslet look WEAKER…

Chambers by your logic what is the point of fighting Adonis? He has already been beaten and so has pretty much most of the fighters Adonis beat. So you are not good unless you are undefeated. So that means Pac is no good, Oscar was no good, Tyson must have sucked, Wlad sucks, Lewis sucks, I mean I guess every fighter except for a handful suck when it comes to your requirements

I don’t think the big names still get it for free, I think they get a sponsor who pays for it. Like Conte was the one paying for it for, wow I have drawn a blank. Dude that just lost to Rigo. But he paid for it for him. So I think the big name boxers get the sponsor and they pay for it.

Ward? elite? really? cmon people. Andre Ward is boring and cant KO anyone to save his life. Worse, Ward only faces fighters who have already been beaten. Andre Ward fans, if your boy is anything then he should be going after ADONIS, noy Adonis calling him out. Ward dont want no part of that. Reflection on the Kessler fight, I too was there in Oakland watching that foul fest. Ward fought throwbacks like green and Bika then faces off with Froch who was already beaten. Ward has a long way to go.

PEEJ the Ward-Kessler bout looked different in person than on TV. I was there in Oakland and some guys around us were laughing at his headbutts. It looked more subtle on TV but ringside it was like a rhino charge. That said, he did win fair and square. Like the old school trainers always say, “If they foul you foul ‘em back.”

Thanks for clarifying PEEJ. IMO Ward should follow up with VADA and do it. The big arguement against doing the testing is cost. Why pay for it if it’s not mandatory? But what VADA does with certain name fighters is do it for free, since the boxer’s involvement buoys VADA’s rep. Ward’s a big enough name he could get that testing free.

PEEJ

They where infighting, when you do that head butts will happen. And didn’t they just have a hug fest in Russia? That was no disqualification. So don’t know how you can say if it happened in any other part of the country. Sorry but Ward whooped Kessler fair and square.

he head butted kessler so badly through that fight (in oakland) where if it were held in any other country he would of been disqualified.. so dont bring that disgrace of a fight into it

Ward is the SECOND best fighter in the world… He has slain a who’s who of fighters at 168 and smashed former LHW lineal Champ Chad Dawson… His skills made a mockery of the tourney as he exposed the flaws in stiff styles of Champions Kessler and Froch… Coming back he’s facing another top notch contender and looking to keep his undefeated record… Stevenson and Kovalev are a couple guys with heavy hands who belong wearing thongs and washing SOG’s trunks… They are NOT on his level and sooner or later that will be proved in the ring if he moves up… We KNOW that GGG is hopeless against Andre, who Beatdown a much Tougher more battle tested fighter in Froch 8 pounds north of where Golovkin fights C class fighters and fools novice posters into declaring him the next Marvin Hagler…

Ok, I found the article and it actually says he endorses the random testing or olympic style testing but doesn’t say he has actually done it. It was back in 2011 when the article came out. My bad

I called him a boring bastard and my comment got deleted. I don’t think that’s fair, I mean Ward indisputably IS a boring bastard.

“I thought he did the VADA before. And I also thought he did the USDA. But if I am wrong, then i am wrong, I just thought I read that somewhere.” – PEEJ, I don’t believe Ward’s done USADA or VADA testing. If there’s a report stating otherwise I’d like to read it because then we’d have our answer. IMO it doesn’t matter who does the testing, all the recognized groups are good. Main thing is it’s random out of comp testing done by an independently certified group.

Posted October 23, 2013 2:41 pm

also like to point out that the USDA testing has never found any of the cheats we have found out lately.. its only the VADA that is fit for purpose and caught all the latest cheats… thats why WARD TAKE THE TEST

i dont watch ward.. nor will i ever watch bradley again.. both hurting the sport i love.. and for someone to be called number 2 p4p when u only ever fought in one division and at home is hurtng the sport even more!

Hate’tah kill’a

The question was posed to Edwin at the press conference …..do have suspisions that ward is dirty? Edwin answers absolutely not. The reporter then ask Edwin….well if you are of the belief that he is clean then why do you ask him? Edwin could not respond. It’s like ward said…Victor conte put Edwin up to this for his love of publicity and wards team wasn’t biting. These matters are taken up in negotiations which lasted for weeks. They are not brought up at a press conference. For you fans who don’t like ward don’t watch him simple as that. I’m quite sure he isn’t thinkn about computer critics living in moms basement apartment. Ward will continue to dominate the Smd until he goes into the light heavy division and dominate that also. So you guys that can’t stomach ward……keep puking because he is going to make you nauseated from the beating he is going to give Edwin.

And you have no name so nobody really cares of your opinion because you are nobody. I said I thought I read that somewhere when he was with Conte. So I am not forsure, that is why I said I think. But since you are nobody you have no facts to back anything you write. Because once again you are a nobody.

Posted October 23, 2013 1:38 pm

Conte sponsors fighters for the VADA and pays for it for them I believe. USDA is the olympic committee. VADA is with Goodman. But I thought he did the VADA before. And I also thought he did the USDA. But if I am wrong, then i am wrong, I just thought I read that somewhere.

“Ward does the Olympic drug testing. The reason he is not doing Vada anymore is because he is no longer with Conte and I believe Conte plays a majore role in Vada” – PEEJ, which group does the testing? I’ve not heard that.

Ward will only fight in his home town with his personal referee and judges! Ward was the ONLY one who never had to travel in the tournament! Now Ward does not want to test for PEDS?! Why? Something appears to be fishy………….Ward ran across the ring with his head like a billy goat and landed what appeared to be an intentional, illegal headbutt! However, Ward had his referee there to protect him. I will not watch Ward fight again period. Ward does not approve of an level playing field. It’s time Ward fight someone such as Stevenson who called him out! He could also fight Kovalev, but he will not and if he did he would have to be in his home town. I don’t remember anyone fighting in his home town so much!

He said he wanted to do it for the Green fight. Abraham’s team wanted him to do it for their fight against him. Carl Froch wanted him to do it. And now Rodriguez too. Guess what happened each and every time? He didn’t end up doing it.

Boxer- I’m a boxing fan. And Ward can box as well as Hopkins. Not crowd pleasing but they can straight up box and get dirty which is what the sport is all about in winning. But you are an idiot if you say mma is for the less skilled. Its COMPLETE fighting with rules. Ward and Hopkins would carried out on a stretcher if they got into mma. AND they know it. You know why? They don’t have the massive amount of skills in the 100 different style of fighting to implement them in an mma fight.

Posted October 22, 2013 8:12 pm 


The Motorcycle Boy Reigns

He complained it was too expensive (in his words $50,000-$100,000 for 7 to 8 weeks of random testing for both fighters is ”staggeringly expensive”) but even when his opponent’s sponsor (Edwin Rodriguez) says they’ll foot the cost of both his and his opponent’s bill he refuses to do it.

Ward endorses all additional testing. He advocates it and claims to be a big proponent of it. In fact, he says he wants to implement it for his fights. Problem is, contrary to what you say, not only does he not do it but he also somehow manages to wriggle out of it everytime one of his opponents tries to get him too do it.
