It's going to be real intriguing to see how this turns out......din't he say he wanted to return in the fall?

Arum made Pac

Well you got me there, but putting him in against Marquez four times wasn't smart

Ward will find out quick that Bob only wants to showcase his foreigners who are out there fighting for their country. As with Mayweather, Ward will become "just another n*gger" under Top Prank...




OK.. some real talk. I thought this type of talk would get someone banned but hey, I appreciate the real truth and someone who is not afraid to tell it. Ward may struggle to make money unless he jumps off of his gentleman jim persona and becomes controversial. Floyd was an olympian and while with Arum was a good, smiling, and pleasant young man--- yet he was not getting exposure and big money until he started acting other than himself. We will see what happens with Wards career. Right now hardly anyone in the World know who he is when mentioning his name

the fact that he is considering top rank tells me he's not educated enough on the matter to do it himself. i hear what you're saying and i agree.


I'll give Ward the benefit of the doubt. Nothing about him suggests to me that he can't handle his own business. He would be a fool not to consider Top Rank. There are only so many promotion companies. I assume he's looking for the highest bidder.

Andre Ward needs to forget 168 and start looking to 175. He already cleaned out the Division and there aint nothing there for him.

I actually think Chavez Jr and GGG are the biggest fights he can get right now. Unless he wants to go whoop up on Froch in England and get some overseas money.

I wonder if he fights in the fall at all now since he's entangled in a legal dispute with his promoter, I just hope he doesn't end up in a career situation like Dirrell where we rarely see him and he ends up wasting his prime years

this can be an issue...but i'm guessing goosen would take some money to walk away from the situation. he didn't put up much of a fight when guerrero left for golden boy.

the other thing...he may be with goosen on a fight by fight basis. in which case...there's nothing goosen can do if he walks away.
