Let's hope this gets the ball rolling! So the other day Abel sanchez came out and criticized the opposition ward wanted for his next fight (look who's talking). Saying WARD should come back on ESPN not HBO Lmao.

Now Hunter responded to Abel saying he needs to stay in his lane and quit being a hypocrite. I totally agree with hunter, ward hasn't had am easy fight in years. All of his opponents are top of their class at the time and champions at one point or another. A tune up fight, which Hbo doesn't mind doing with guys like donaire, is actually well deserved if Andre wants it!

I really hope this back and forth really turns into something meaningful to motivate these to and stir something up in super middle because as of now most of the super middleweight action is overseas.

abels comments are out of line. the reporters who are feeding this are instigators. abel should have been smarter than that. hunters response was on point. it's clear to me that hbo has double standards when it comes to black fighters. floyd, ward, rigondeaux and bradley are all examples that i can point to.

donaire is a fan friendly fighter who goes for KO's like GGG thats why they don't mind doing it, ward = hugging, mauling, boring fight, just saying

Ward dropped and stopped Dawson in his first Hbo fight..? He punished him the whole fight

They go for the Kos because their opponents for the most part are shit who aren't even there to win for the most part. But when they get in with someone who isn't just there to get a check or survive.. well I don't have to tell you just watch donaire rigo

Ward is not a boring fighter. Thats ridiculous. He put the best LHW, at the time, through a meat grinder. Hell, I cant name one Ward fight I watched that I wasnt thoroughly entertained.

donaire vs narvaez was one of the shittiest fights i've ever seen. he had every advantage over narvaez but did absolutely nothing.

not every fight is going to be a ko. when u have highly skilled fighter against another highly skilled fighter the chances of a ko are slim and none. 2 guys with zero defense usually gives u rock 'em sock 'em robots. 1 highly skilled guy against a guy with no defense...highlight ko. there is sooooo much more to boxing than the ko. uneducated fans miss so much....they have no clue. but if they don't have the attention span for chess....give them checkers i guess...

Redundancy at its finest. Reports ARE instigators.

true dat.

This fight is slowly building it seems....as far as Hunter, I agree with what he said. Sanchez seems to be feeling himself a bit. I watched a video of him today in an interview and he was going in on Kovalev saying Kovalev was afraid of GGG when they spared or some shit like that

HBO is the source of this problem though, their really dropping the ball here

Exactly. They should really try their best to sign with promoters that have Showtime deals.

Damn as hotsauce would say ward let Edwin cook!

Ward budged on the purse for the fight and said he is signing the contract today! I lied on the other thread this year just got better! Ward is back! And he's fighting a strong athletic undefeated contender! Wow! This year is one for the ages!

This type of "analysis" belongs on Youtube comments. Too many educated boxing fans here for that buddy.
