Fight more talk less. That's how you get exposure. Have 3 or 4 top opponents and dominate like he most likely would and he'd be good. Get a fighter of the year award and actually get on a PPV.
JCC, GGG, Canelo, BHOP. The Dawson or Froch rematches; which i don't really think he needs since he handled both soundly and definitively. Froch does deserve it more.
Also Andre Ward on Money team would be awesome i think, Mayweather should stack up on the Olympians. Get Rigondeaux too. I would love to see Mayweather, Ward, and Rigondeaux on the same fight card. Probably wouldn't happen but now a days if I'm paying for a PPV, i better be paying for more than 1 talent to watch.
I haven't been around too long but i wondered if they ever had days when their was more than 1 headlining fight on a PPV card so its actually worth the money instead of just 1 Main fight. They do it on UFC and i like the idea.
3 or 4 top opponents? The man has faced Dawson, Froch, Abraham and Kessler the past 3 years, not to mention solid wins in between.
He's already won a fighter of the year award.
Getting on PPV falls on his management and promotional team.
Canelo isn't going anywhere near Ward draining himself to 154, neither is GGG or BHOP as he's stated all along. There's no need for a Froch rematch unless it makes financial sense, cause he took care of him pretty easily the first time, as he did Dawson. The only fight out there is JCC if he wants to step up, or a move to light heavyweight.
There's not a lot going for Ward, he's already shown he's the cream of the crop, there isn't anyone out there around the division that will pose any kind of challenge to him, and that's out of his control. That, and the boxing public and networks don't appreciate the sweet science for what it is anymore. Ward's a master technician that only the die hard purists who appreciate real boxing can be entertained about. And it's pretty sad that a true champion like Ward has to suffer for it.
