PHAT I agree with the Super six statement. The 6 was to spark an interest in the 168 DIV, no dought about it. The fight there was Dirrell vs Ward and that did not happen for whatever and Dirrell was Robbed in that. Dirrell has more skills than Ward and can beat him.

Im not sure about the AA fight ordeal. That was weird but one thing for sure AA was losing and Froch was gifted the Dirrell fight. The fight regarding Ward vs Kessler played big. Ward set it up so that he would only fight in Oakland, red flag number #1. Ward fouled so much in that fight and not one warning, red flag #2. Ward then gifted B fighters Bika and green who were not worth a bridge toll.

So Ward ultimately takes on Froch who nobody cared about before this super 6 and froch lost against Dirrell. Ward wins froch and now after 5 years in the pros has a name for winning a very ugly super 6

Ward’s only noteable win after all that was in deed Dawson who they made a deal with to fight at 170 knowing Dawson is a melted gummy bear at that weight. Ward placed on P4P basically for that win which a guy like Adonis takes out in one round which took Ward a boring 10 rounds to do.

Whats this all mean, means that Ward abosluely should not be on tip 10 P4P. Sorry Ward fans

Malachi Big money in a fight with Adonis or Dirrell. Those two are legit vs Ward. Ward has been handed way to much credit for the opposition he faced over the years. Peej gives alot a credit to Kessler and Froch for being these great champs. I dont know about you, but did you ever pay attention or care about the names Froch or Kessler. Kessler name got notice after his loss to Joe. Froch was listed on the super 6 which really wasnt that super. If you break that tourny down, AA was the bigest name and initial threat because of his power. AA really though didnt fight big names and Dirrel really exposed him for the talent he was not. They through in soft names like bika and green to fill holes for a tourny that basically was a wash out. The Super 6 was created to strike an interest in a 168 division that really needed help. Ward at that time only fought in San Jose and his opposition was awful outside of Miranda who was basically on a downward spiral,. So Ive read the comments regarding Ward and they are little hard but im guessing when you look at the P4P list and what or who these fighters beat to be there, the question mark is on Ward for beating basically Dawson is crud at 170 then Froch who is a tough euro but thats it.

Is Anthony Dirrell another Al Haymon fighter or was he legitimatly the top ranked challenger? It’s a big risk, no reward type fight for Bika. A unification bout against Froch would have been more appetizing and lucrative.

Froch has a dang good career and Ward beat him with ease. Who else at 168 would beat Froch like that? Heck who else at 168 can beat Froch? Americans liked Kessler. I liked Kessler. To be honest I thought Kessler was gonna handle Ward. I seen Ward rocked by a tomato can so I thought Kessler was going to knock him out. Kessler at that time had only lost to the great Calzaghe. No shame in that. I don’t really care about rounds or fights that go down in history. At this point at time nobody at 168 can give him a fight of the year type fight or memorable rounds. When he moves to light heavy maybe someone can. I know how to get past the numbers game. Dawson called Ward out and he called him out at 168. So I don’t see the issue. Dawson said he could make the fight, is that Wards fault that he called him out at 168? And from the way it went I can say Ward would of dominated Dawson at any weight. I will agree that he was nothing until the Super 6 tourney but they way he dominated that tourney says a lot. And the way he has cleared out 168 says even more.

Phat that is a good point and well taken. I will be open minded because I”m a Ward fan. Ward is not great, yet but he has what it takes to be there. I do agree that Ward has no big fights under his name and I do understand the quality of oppostion. Hopefull Ward will take on a name like Adonis,, butt I dont see that happening because ward’s people are not going to want a risk so soon. Eventually ward is going to need the big name which would define Super and there is noname at 168 that is going to do that. Fact is that the 168 are at a all time low, Ward came at a good time. The days of the great Joe Calzage dont exist at this time.

Peej,,, I love all this big talk about Andre Ward so Im going to jump in for good will and conversation. #1— Andre Ward to date dont have one fight, one round, moment worth the history books. I mean where oh where is the greaat super fight worth the ages, nowhere. Ward as a pro was virtually nohwere and I mean nowhere to be seen for the first 4 and half years as a Pro. Heck, RIGO was on the set for a year and half and already had a belt, 11 fights later he is on the P4P list. Many agree. So here is Ward and lets take a look at his resume, Kessler? nobody cared about Kessler and sure was no big name here in the states, Froch? same thing AA was a name but with who, he had stiffs on his resume and was out boxed verse Dirrell. Ward only name going into the Super 6 was Miranda who was on his way out. Ward scared to chance anything- made a deal to only fight at Oakland during the 6 tourny which in all do respect was a wash out. Lastly Ward fought Dawson who did have a name at 175 but was already blemished and had no chance at 170. Learn about how to go beyond the numbers game and look at the quality not the quantity of oppositon. If you do that, Ward is a OK fighter who beat OK fighters. Adonis did lose and so whats the problem. Problem is there is noway Ward takes on Adonis at 175- to too much risk

Big Top you don’t have much boxing knowledge. You say Kessler was already a beaten fighter and then say he should of fought Stevenson. You do know Stevenson is already a beaten fighter right. And he was beaten by a C level fighter. Oh also struggled with Donavan George. Learn your history. Ward is a damn good fighter and is the best at 168, he is not a paper champ. And by the way Dirrell pulled out of the fight with Ward. That should tell you something there.

Dirrell by UD in this one :) I’d like to see the winner take on Degale but that’s just me :)

Easy Easy win for Dirrell and then go for Adonis, forget Ward Ward likes to fight cream puffs.

What++ Bika is going to be Dirrell pin cushion all night. Then on to MMA with Ward whom cant seem to control all the head thrusting and disco dance holding

Posted November 20, 2013 10:14 pm 


Big Top

TOMATOE++ Dirrell is going to win every round against Bika who is a nobody and isnt worth a movie ticket to watch. Dirrell vs Ward on neutral fight groung , none of this Oakland stuff and winner take on Adonis at 175.

Posted November 20, 2013 10:02 pm 


Big Top

Swedish++ Ward is far from the best and in fact, ward is the paper champ because he hasnt faced anyone worth a beer can. Kessler was already a beaten figher the day he stepped into Oakland also Froch was already Kessler sloppy seconds. So much for the sloppy 6 now the only name faced after that was dryed up Dawson at 170 and thats the ball game. Ward never faced Dirrell and the true test to anything is Adonis. Ward’s resume is a dried up turtle shell.

If Anthony can handel Bika’s awkwardness, he’ll out gun and beat Bika.

easy win for Anthony and who care about Ward, Ward never face Dirrell and everyone else on his win list not worth a gum wrapper.

Doesn’t matter what titles people hold. Ward is the Champion at 168.

Swedish Boxing Fan

I can only say this and that is that the WBC super middleweight title belongs to Andre Ward. All else holding the belt are just a paper champion. Andre Ward is the best boxer in the world.

wow/what a good fight il order showtime for a month just to see it..yuuup!

Posted November 20, 2013 5:22 pm 


WHAT!?!

Bika will test what is inside of Dirrell. If anyone can break you down with non-stop relentlessness it is Bika.

Posted November 20, 2013 5:04 pm 


PEEJ

Yeah Dirrells comp is really questionable and Bika is a big test for him. If he beats him then that will shed some light on what sort of fighter he is. But for the most part he has been fighting C and D level fighters his whole career.

Bika looks like he had slipped a little in his last couple of fights …..Hopefully the time off since winning the strap has served him well ………….And we get a very competitive fight ……..

Posted November 20, 2013 4:03 pm 


horst fraze

bika should prevail in this one, as long as he hasn’t slipped too much since the ward fight.

PEEJ, no way does Bika handle him. Dirrell’s technical fundamentals are as good as Andre’s but he hits harder and is a game fighter. Could be the first time Bika is KOed.

moonshineman

Where is Andre?.

Posted November 20, 2013 2:51 pm 


PEEJ

I am not too impressed with him. I am thinking Bika might handle him. I just haven’t seen enough. And unfortunately he is taking a big jump in comp.

Posted November 20, 2013 2:51 pm 


Fight Aficionado

Sweet. I’ve been an Anthony Dirrell fan since his early pro days when he fought in San Jose. He’s a skilled puncher, not a runner like his brother. If he can stay healthy he could provide surprises at 168.
