Have yawl notice Ward has a new attitude. he speaks with a chip on his shoulder and has an air of conceded type of attitude. I wonder if he is thinking he has to change his good guy type of tune or he is just tired of people overlooking him. He is 29, so I guess he has to try to start making big money fights and putting asses in the seats. With the rise of certain fighters popularity, Ward must feel the pressure to not fade out. I don't blame him for calling out Chavez Jr.

it just seems like after each of his Biggest fights (the fights after super six) he ends up getting injured or something and we don't see him or hear from him in awhile. I know its his promotional team but Damn, he needs to take responsibility for himself. Its Andre Ward's career, not j prince's or whatever his promoters name is. Andre Ward isn't a top or big draw so he can't fight like he is fighting only once or twice a year... We need 3 or 4 fights a year.

I'm trying to understand Ward, so ill put myself in his shoes. All that skill, god given talent, gold medalist, undefeated and still not a top draw? He's a good man, so the people would like him if he got alittle exposure, maybe talked alittle tiny bit more trash just for a headline here or there. But the best way for him to get exposure is doing what he does best and beat anybody who steps in the ring with him. Maybe a few more fighters from the latino demographic. JCC at his weight, and when Canelo grows out of middle weight he can get it too. GGG said he would go up for the fight so why not take down this titan. He wont get the exposure beating up the White boys that not much people know.

I had a fight party for Ward vs Dawson. The people i had over aren't boxing purists so i was the only one who was really into it while they were trying to figure out who was who. I liked Dawson but he just got into the ring with the wrong one, totally outclassed. While people saw that as a boring fight, i saw it as a pivotal moment in both fighters Careers. And now look i haven't seen a fight from either of them...Soon ill finally see Chad again and hopefully that loss made him work harder because he has room to improve.

The weight really bothered Dawnson, I am sorry, Dawson was way past his head for draining himself.

Ward needs a new promotional company. If he fought GGG it would be smart because he is the new top gun. Mind you people want Ward to fight Mayweather!!!!!!! Not for Ward's legacy but for Mayweather's! That tells you what people think of his skill set but come, no one knows Ward outside of Oakland and hardcore fans. If Ward signed with either TR or GB he would be exposed at the greatest level. He is knocking on 30 and hasn't had a block buster PPV offer or a big money fight. He needs exposure. A good guy with a sharp tongue will give him fan. He can be the rich man's Shane Mosley. If he fought JCC Jr. that would be big, but he would have to sign with Top Rank, that is alot of money for Bob and Bob loves money.
