I cant see where it hurts his carreer. People are outraged because there was some truth to what Floyd said. Broner is more known than Ward. I dont hear you disputing that.

ward has only been on hbo for a short while. i'd be curious to see his numbers on showtime. ward has fought internationally known fighters and beat them handily. dawson, kessler, bika, froch, miranda and abraham. let's not forget that he won an olympic gold medal. ward has been around for quite some time and has headlined his own cards on tv. how many fights has broner headlined? how many internationally known fighters has he beaten? i don't care how hard he clings on to floyds nuts...that isn't going to give him more accomplishment or recognition than ward.

Nobody said Ward wasnt great. I never said it and thats not what I read from Floyd. Wards been fighting quality opposition for a few years now and Broners already more popular. I think Floyd was taking a shot at Wards management team.

what are you basing broners popularity on? i think far more ppl (especially boxing fans) know who ward is than broner. (again, for the reasons i stated in the other thread. he was the headliner in all of those matches.) broner has headlined what? 2 shows?

Broners last fight had 1.4 mil views on HBO. Thats what im basing his popularity on. Wards not doing numbers like that. HBOs fast tracking Broner to PPV.

I agree, there is no way that Ward is more popular then Broner and there is no proof that one can legitimately provide to prove otherwise. If you look at the #'s that he does on his regular HBO broadcasts, they are pretty solid. Ward has been in with tougher comp and is the better fighter of the two but Ward aint more known in NO CIRCLE of boxing fans, hard core or casual...then Broner. This guys has a gold medal and he's not even a draw

No way you can tell me that Goosen got this guy more recognized then GB did Broner lol...Broner's mouth, antics, and his electric style got him his popularity. Ward is getting there but if both were to have a PPV, Broner would sell more. Talking helps and his motor mouth gets headlines. Fighting international comp is good but that don't make you more well known. I fucked a b*tch from London, does that make me a international playa like Jerome from Martin lol.

I don't like what Floyd said but sometimes when words are written it can be taken in the wrong context, but I agree with him on somethings he said, like the stuff about Canelo and his diva ways. He also had a point about how athletes choose to use God in their approach to sports, he didn't have to go at Ward but I think that was more so that he thinkin they cool and you siding with the enemy. I can respect that but he could've articulated it a better way

On the other hand, Ward and Guerrero go back a long way I think and he is just being loyal to his friend, Floyd and no one else should fault him for that. I will say Ward handled it very well with his response. I respect Ward and I have met and chatted with him on a few occasions, he's 100% truth. A man of great faith and character. My only issue with him is his team...meaning J Prince. I expected more from him in that regard. He's a man of God but he getting extorted
