Andre Ward is BACK to show us the CLOSEST thing to Mayweather like precision we have operating on boxing today… This is a SUPERB and disiplined boxer who has been elevating the quality of his performances… UNLIKE the WEAK excuse making fighters that abound in boxing SOG has NEVER had to whine and wince when losing to another pro fighter… The mans fought the BEST in his division and basically send Chad Dawson on the path to ruin… I’m glad hes back in action!!!

Froch once again said on Sky TV only last week that he wants to fight Ward again to avenge his defeat and he has consistently said this. Also, he has NEVER said that no one would ever beat Ward. Utter crap made up in your mind! He pointed out recently that ALL fighters are beatable. And of course he is right. The fact is Ward was asked on Sky TV live not too long ago if he would fight Froch in Notthingham and as expected Ward dodged the answer again and again and again. Ward only fights in his own backyard, IF he ever was to finally man up and fight Froch in in Nottingham Ward would have a much tougher fight and he knows it, that’s why he keeps ducking Froch for a return match in the UK. Ward will continue to duck Froch because he’s too chicken to take him on a second time in the UK. Credit to Froch he took on Ward in the USA and lost fair and square. When it came to Ward returning the favour, he ran!

Ali never worked on the inside… So Wladimir isn’t the only great Heavyweight Champion who wasn’t a good infighter…

The thing is Wladimir’s defense is a lot better than Ali’s was — and so are his size, strength, left jab, straight right, left hook, and longevity.

Ward is willing to fight overseas… He wanted to fight Froch in England… He knows they have great boxing fans over there and he really wanted to go there… He loved doing Froch-Kessler II and said he’d love to meet Froch in England..

Froch was non-committal… But he’s also said earlier that he wasn’t interested in a rematch with Ward and didn’t believe anyone was ever going to beat Ward.

Garbage Man (Is Back)

Difference is Ward works on the inside. Neither Klitchko really works inside, well Wlad doesn’t. Vitali does from time to time. Vitali is actually not a bad fighter to watch

ward is very exiteing,just like the clenchko bros.

As a matter of fact you tell me what he has to do for you to think he’s a top pound for pounder. Sorry for some of the miss spelled words in the previous post. Swype is killing me.

The Great American Joke

Talking about his surgery,Ward said “it will be faster,stronger…”…..sounds like the Six Million Dollar Man….dream on Andre….

Posted November 13, 2013 4:08 am 


Why doesn’t Ward just fight in his living room in front of his five friends and his dog?

Great champions fight outside their own country and take on the best and most dangerous fighters around. Andre ‘Boring’ Ward and Fraud ‘cherrypicking con artist’ Mayweather do neither. So as far as I’m concerned neither are great fighters.

They are both cheating frauds.

Posted November 13, 2013 3:28 am 


How about the Dawson and Rodriguez wins???

Ward will fight overseas… He was willing to fight Froch in England—but Carl wanted to fight a green kid instead and get an easy win.

Drug testing prevents Ward from fighting away from home. He will never get the big fights anymore because off this and he’ll try to live off of the the Kessler & Froch wins.

Nope. Boxtradamus is a WINNER.

Zoo, you don’t see articles about Queernye West on here though or any boxing site. So you aren’t forced to read about the turd.

No one is Googling Ward. They come here to read about boxing and are force fed articles on this boring, overrated turd. And so they comment. End of story.

Your example sucked.

Andre Ward is a good fighter, but his style just doesn’t relate well to a lot of fans. He’s a good boxer, but nothing great like Sugar Ray Leonard. He fights well inside, but he’s nothing like Chavez Sr. He has good speed and counters, but nothing like Floyd. His personality is that of a nice young man that’s polite, but it doesn’t translate well to boxing fans. He has no real charisma or anything that stands out. Yes, he’s a good fighter in all areas, but he’s missing the “IT” things. Lately he’s been trying to play the tough mean role, and that simply doesn’t work. Andre ward is one of the best out there, but he doesn’t catch anyone’s attention.
Boxers have either the boxing skills to bring in the fans or they have the charisma, sometimes they have both. In Andre’s case, he has a little of everything, but not enough to bring in the true boxing fans. He needs a Mega Fight to have a chance, and even that may not be enough.

Ward’s comming off of shoulder surgery, some fighters never come back from that, other’s take a long time to come back, Hopefully, Ward will beat the odds and be fine.

For Ward to be soooo boring its alot of you on here who care enough to read an article on him. For instance, I practically hate Kanye West so guess what? I dont google him or read about hin at all. So skip the article if you hate him so bad.

those drug tests in america are really strict.

Posted November 12, 2013 10:44 am 


Dear Ward! If you wanna be the best, you gonna fight the best outside you home town or country. Step it up.

Ward is irrelevant until he gets a passport and a drug test. He needs home town protection and is boring.

Posted November 12, 2013 1:35 am 


SOB Ward refuses to take a drug test………….appears that he is afraid of taking such a test…………..appears to be guilty. Will he be roided up?

Ward also refuses to fight outside his home town with his personal referee, judges, boxing commission, commentators, etc. Ward beat Kessler with an intentional head butt that came from across the ring, looked like a goat with a but like that. The ref should have disqualified Ward, but it appears that Ward’s personal referee feels that a head butt is illegal only for Ward’s opponents, but legal for Ward……………sad…………….he appears to be a cheat……….

Posted November 12, 2013 1:35 am 


Ward closed his camp so he can PED up. He should fight Mayweather, LOL … that way you’ll see the most boring fight of all time, but Fraud would never leave Vegas, and Ward won’t leave Cali, they only fight in their own backyards with their own refs and their own judges! LOL … number 1 and 2 in the world, what a joke!! Neither have the guts to fight outside the USA. They are both ridiculous.

Rodriguez goes to camp fat and out of shape. Wards team knows it and will exploit it. Its hard to believe this guy (Rodriguez) even got this fight…and a million dollars????? Wtf??? The kid doesn’t take this sport seriously. Ward 6th round KP. Rodriguez “the wild puncher” will be exposed.

Posted November 11, 2013 9:52 pm 


Ward is a very well schooled fighter- he graduated from the same school as did Bradley and Hollyfiield in the Art of head butting. The opponents are so concerned about getting head butted that it affects the way they normally fight.

I sure wish people would stop writing and saying “highly anticipated” in front of any Ward fight. That phrase just doesn’t belong in anything Ward-associated.

Posted November 11, 2013 8:58 pm 


Funny but Ward has never needed help from home town refs or judges to win a fight. All his fights he clearly won. And he has beaten title holders. That’s how he became Champion

Posted November 11, 2013 6:49 pm 


Rodriguez will be soundly beaten. You have to give Rodriguez credit for fighting a guy like Ward.

Posted November 11, 2013 6:49 pm 


Andre Ward is the concensus p4p number 2 in the world?? Really? Not only is his claim to that spot unfounded but I’m not even aware of any prominent boxing writers or pundits even CLAIMING that Ward is the p4p number 2. P4P fighters don’t usually fight guys who’ve never held a belt before, P4P fighters don’t usually sit on their ass while all the belts are held by other people.

Posted November 11, 2013 6:17 pm 


Big fan of Ward. Was impressed how he set up Bad Chad in the fight- quick jab to the body, with the straight right to the chin coming quick after. Smarts, speed and a tight defense will take you a long way.

Posted November 11, 2013 6:01 pm 


Now Ward can use his right arm properly he may stop using his headbutts but I doubt it.

Posted November 11, 2013 5:53 pm 


He is the real Champ at 168 though

Posted November 11, 2013 5:37 pm 


The real p4p champ has returned

Posted November 11, 2013 5:13 pm 


nice of all wards 4 fans to express their excitement here in ESB about his long waited return..

Posted November 11, 2013 4:55 pm 


Layoff or no layoff S.O.G. beats this guy period. I don’t see anybody at either 168 or 175 that can win against Ward, though fights with Adonis and Kovalev would be interesting matches. Eventually, S.O.G. will move up to heavyweight where the competition will be tougher due the size differential, but even then I see him having his share of success before he finally tastes a defeat.

Posted November 11, 2013 4:39 pm 


Ward wins again. Too good and too dominant.

Posted November 11, 2013 4:37 pm 


Looking forward to seeing Ward bak in the ring. Hope he duffs Froch up again next year. Then at sum point, a fight with Kovalev at 175 wud be very intriguing.
