@andreward
I'm not an athlete who happens to be a Christian, but a Christian who happens to be an athlete!!

@andreward
I Won't Sell My Soul For Money, Fans, PPV Buys, or Whatever Else. I'm Not Selling Out!! God Has Been Too Good To Me!! #SOG

@andreward
I'm not just trying to just get or take something from the game...but give something to the game & leave a legacy.

‏@andreward
If a fighter leaves with their facilities in tact, finances in tact, integrity in tact. You can call that a successful career in my book.

‏@andreward
I love boxing y'all...but there is more to my life than lacing up boxing gloves. It's a small part of my life.

‏@andreward
One day boxing will end. No more fans, no more big checks, no more tv. People will be cheering someone else on. Then...who are you

Got to give it up to Ward, he is forever the class act

He can text whatever, but it doesn't mean that's the way he actually feels on the inside. Who really believes that he doesn't want to be a big attraction, make a boat load of money, and whatever comes with being # 1? It just irks my nerves how people use religion or god to justify an argument and Ward isn't the only one guilty of this. He is basically saying that Floyd sold his soul to the devil lol and that he can't make to that level necause he following the righteous path. Lol

I think he wants to be a big PPV star, he said it earlier this week in fact, but I don't think he's willing to compromise himself to attain those goals. I see what your saying though lol...and that goes back to what I said in a previous post, some (not talking about you) don't like bible thumpers and I think some fans feel he is one(again, not talking about you). There are athletes who play up this religion angle and it makes me sick to my stomach

What gets me is why is it off limits to discuss Ward's, or Tebow's or any other pro athletes situation in that regard. Everybody knows if you go at Tebow, that's suicide lol. It's like saying because I don't got to church regularly I'm a heathen and I can be critiqued but the other goes to church, champions their faith and they get a pass

We are on the same page, this goes beyond Floyd vs Ward. In everyday life I see so many people waving the religion sword and say they are living according to the good book, but keep up so much crap. Lol it's to point where I find myself monitoring their actions, so I can critique them.

We call that bible thumping lol.....the issue is bigger then Floyd, I think it's more so the religion/God aspect of it. But because Floyd is involved that will get pushed to the side and he's hating and he jealous blah blah blah. I just never understood why because someone champions their faith, which I don't see wrong in..they always get a pass and when someone speaks on them, they're monsters lol

We don't know what's going on behind closed doors. And like I said, Ward is a man of God but he's managed by one of the most notorious gangsters from Houston. J Prince's exploits in the streets are legendary and he's known to rip people off. I give props to Floyd's father for sticking up to Prince back in the day on behalf of his son. That took some balls...but Ward is a great boxer and what he does is what he does but he we don't know if he's as clean cut as some think he is..no one's above criticism, we should all not judge others but criticism and being spoke on is different then judging. And I don't think Floyd was judging him, I think it was a critique that went over the edge but how is he wrong for expressing his opinion
