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

@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

What does Andre Ward do other than boxing. I feel him on that one day his time will end in boxing with no more fans checks and TV. But he's wrong, because if you do the right things in your career you SHOULD still have FANS, CHECKS, and TV...If i was one of these boxers SGR type legacies. I would've hopped my ass to ESPN a longgg time ago. The most i hear from boxing is at FIRST TAKE and its just Mayweather or Pacquiao. Hopkins went on the show and talked about Mayweather vs Pacquiao more than promote his own fight, he didnt even say Cloud's name lol. Atleast commentators, my favorite part during the fight comments comes from the boxers input RJJ, Tarver, George Forman, Mallanaggi, even Ward like once...He's a gold medalist, for America, the last one from america in Boxing in awhile actually , the media would eat that shit up, all he needs is his name brought up more, pride of the country. Maybe he really hasn't sold his soul and that's why he isn't getting any of the exposure he should.

I'm Not saying that Ward should just do whatever for popularity. But there's no doubt that once you hear Boxing Gold medalist and you see him dominate, you have respect and become a fan right away. It only took 1 fight for me to become a fan. His most popular and best fight was against Dawson, he decimated him. Dawson was my dude too, when he quit even i put my head down like "Damm, Ward is no joke". No one ever questions if Ward has the skills, but his legacy isn't as respected and brought up as much as it should be.. Dude is the only Gold Medalist from America that currently boxes, the others that i know of are either Latino or Chinese....

It just goes to show the different kind of legacy's one may have, You can be a Gold Medalist and have a Career like Sugar Ray Leonard or have one like Andre Ward. The choice is yours
