Ward is a boxing master. He puts on a clinic, love watching him school guys.

This. And that fight with Dawson was far from boring. Ward is #2 arguably #1 P4P Phone Post 3.0

Froch and Ward going at it on Twitter:

 

Andre S.O.G. Ward ‏@andreward 6h
@SkySportsBoxing Carl, why do you make so many excuses when things don’t go your way?? Answer please..

Carl Froch ‏@Carl_Froch 5h
@andreward @skysportsboxing You make me laugh Ward! What’s happened to your career!? So boring kid, you could put a glass eye to sleep.

Andre S.O.G. Ward ‏@andreward 5h
@Carl_Froch You have to come stronger than that bro! Only people who agree with you are your neighbors in Nottingham!! Get some rest “champ”

Carl Froch ‏@Carl_Froch 4h
@andreward 18 thousand seat stadium sold out in 3 hours and being shown on the best platform on PPV! Meanwhile you’re still too boring! Zzzz

Andre S.O.G. Ward ‏@andreward 4h
@Carl_Froch I’ll leave it for now “champ”. I know you have a big fight coming up…don’t want you to lose focus…that wouldn’t be good. Lol

Carl Froch ‏@Carl_Froch 4h
@andreward no problem big shot, I enjoy the banter but your question is “boring” reminds me of a style of fighting that fans can’t watch LOL


What prompted this? Ward took Froch to school the first time around and nothing would change if they fought again. Ward #2 pfp all day...

Sky Sports was replaying Froch/Kessler, and so Ward used it as an opportunity to chirp Carl.

Broner and Malignaggi going at it. I still have no idea why this fight is happening. Entertaining shit-talking though.

Man I live boxing, but these fake fueds are just cringe worthy.
I long for the days of real bad blood like Eubanks vs Benn and Tapia vs Romero.

That, it's really not a bad fight when you break things down...9 of the top 10 JWW's have fights coming up, or just recently fought, Paulie is a recongnized fighter and has a title at WW, it makes sense for Broner imo. Not the best fight obviously, but the best available.

Id say cause theres no other real interesting fights out there for Ward at moment, other then Middleweights.

This is how fights are promoted now. Is what it is i guess

I've always respected any style of fighting, being here at the Gym for over a year now. My respect for guys like Ward have gone through the roof, it's really incredible to watch what he does at such a high level.

The amazing part about Ward is that he's not an elite athlete, per se. He doesn't have elite speed, power, or reflexes, and yet despite all that, he is in my opinion the #1 P4P fighter in the world.

Picks for this weekend?

I've got:

Martinez via stoppage

Judah via decision

Khan via stoppage

Jones via submission

Anyone else feeling Judah? I think he's a bad stylistic matchup for Garcia.

Martinez via Decision

Arreola via TKO

Kid Chocolate via Decision

Khan via TKO

Wilder via KO

Jones via TKO

torn on Judah/Garcia, pretty much like every other Judah fight, depends on how the fight is going after 5, half way through we'll know if Judah is done, or can pull off the upset.

Lol, Barry one-upping me. Forgot those other dudes were fighting. Can't really make educated predictions on Cris or Wilder as I'm not familiar with their opponents.

I do like Quillin's chances though.

One thing about Zab is that for all his flaws, he's not really showing any significant signs of decline (IMO). Mayweather has aged much more dramatically than Zab, which is pretty surprising tbh.

Zab's quick enough to give Garcia a lot of problems. If he can execute a gameplan similar to how Khan fought Garcia in rounds 1 and 2, he should be able to win a decision.

Zab has the skills, to bad he doesn't have heart.

I think Zab has an outside chance at the upset.

How good is Danny Garcia really? He beat a way past his prime Erik Morales and was losing handily to Khan until he caught him with a great shot. The jury is still out on him IMO.
