    At a catchweight, say 164. How likely is this and is it a guaranteed win for Andre?

    Ward wins easily. Martinez would get stopped by Froch and he'd probably lose to a few other SMWs, as well.

    Ward would wreck him.

    Dont know why people think Ward would win easily, it would chess match early but Ward would build momentum and take a well earned decision

    Id rather see Golovkin vs Ward though

    TS, THIS. IS. BOXING. There are no guarantees!

    Martinez. Ward would be pretty drained at 164.

    Martinez would certainly not get stopped by Froch.. is that a joke?

    Martinez p4p #3 after money and Ward.

    To answer original question yes 9/10 ward wins dudes a bad ass.

    Martinez has no chance.

    The natural fight is Alvarez Martinez, but Canelos carers wont let this happen.

    Ward vs Sergio at 160 would be debatable. Sergio is a tiny 160, Sergio moving up any weight wouldn't work. Canelo or Pbf are the fights to make especially Floyd

    JCC Jr. almost stopped Martinez. Don't act like it is some impossible task.

    Depends if Ward is weight drained or not. I very much doubt Ward even comes down to fight Martinez, it doesn't make much sense. If Martinez goes up to 168, Ward beats him easily.

    Martinez would be giving up a lot of size, and he probably doesn't carry a speed advantage over Ward, so I think a comfortable win for SOG. But really, it's not even fair, are we just talking about this because there aren't any SMWs good enough for Ward right now?

    I'd have Ward by a fairly lopsided decision, but I'd think Sergio would have enough in him to keep the fight exciting. As far as Froch stopping him, while certainly a possibility, I can't honestly say I can really (clearly) imagine how that fight turns out.

    I think this would be a very ugly fight aesthetically. Given the styles and stances of the two, I could see this one being stopped due to cuts from headbutts. In that event Andre would probably win on the scorecards.
    Id rather see Chavez jr. or Golovkin fight Andre Ward. I wouldnt mind Martinez vs Alvarez at 154, Or possibly against Bute, Pavlik II, Abraham at 168.
    All that being said, He will likely retire a middleweight.
