lets be honest, cleveryly only moved up because hes scared shitless of kovalev and all the rest. i didnt kno he moved up tho, man what a paper champion. i think ward only wants big fights, hes excited for them, and thats what he motivated for. he IS READy for them cause he just dominated rodriguez, who should be fighting at 175, he killed dawson, wetehr you beleive in the weight issue(i dont) or not, he still killed him. He beat frochs ass with a broken hand, and he has all the tools for it. ward is the type of fighter here size doesnt matter vs him, he will disarm the big punchers and neutralize the boxers. he will have no issue a all at 175. not to mention he will be in fantastic shape and never have to cut weight to make 175 at all so he will be lively as hell in there.
correct me if im wrong but didnt ward win his gold mdeal at 175 anyway?
EDIT: YES HE DID! so dont tell me he isnt built for 175 bro.
gold medal. world title. two different things.
amateurs. Pros. Two completely different things.
You are aware that weight in amateur boxing is measured in kilos and not pounds? So If the light heavyweight division in olympic amateur boxing is 75kg-81kg in the pros its 165-178. You are aware that ward was 176 on fight night against Dawson (take note that ward has gotten bigger since the olympics) ? Soooooo you're telling me Ward is built for a anyone at LHW besides Hopkins tha'tll come in any weight past 175 on fight nigh?. Either youre out your mind or you must not have seen how big Stevenson and Kovalev were last night.
I'm not saying Ward isn't built for anything but clearly he's not moving up anytime soon. How many times does he have to tell the fans and the media that it will eventually happen but not now? This dude just had a tuneup fight (against an elite contender) off a layoff and injury. Let the guy live. Its obvious he's not afraid or ducking anyone if he faced the best thus far. Now as far as ward wanting big money fights i agree with you. Part of his stay at SMW is a result of his motivation for a JCC Jr./Golovkin PPV.
i see ward has the Mayweather syndrome. He's making shit look so easy that you guys are no longer satisfied....
