Is Andre Ward A Pound-For-Pound Fighter? You Bet He Is!

Andre WardBy James Slater: Based not only on last night’s magnificently dominant win over a very good, very tough, very game fighter in Carl Froch, but also on his great wins over the likes of Mikkel Kessler and Arthur Abraham, Andre Ward now has to be ranked near the top of the mythical Pound-for-Pound charts the fans so love to debate.

Ward is clearly a very special talent, his gifts making fine fighters look like relative novices. But how high should Ward, 25-0(13) be placed on the P-4-P charts? Here I give my top-ten list:

1: Floyd Mayweather, Welterweight: 42-0(26)

2: Manny Pacquiao, Welterweight: 54-3-2(38)

3: Sergio Martinez, Middleweight: 48-2-2(27)

4: Andre Ward, Super-middleweight: 25-0(13)

5: Nonito Donaire, Super-bantamweight: 27-1(18)

6: Juan Manuel Marquez, Light-welterweight: 53-6-1(39)

7: Wladimir Klitschko, Heavyweight: 56-3(49)

8: Vitali Klitschko, Heavyweight: 43-2(40)

9: Tim Bradley, Light-welterweight: 28-0(12)

10: Miguel Cotto, Light-middleweight: 37-2(30)
