    This place is uppoaed to be for the resl boxing fans and aint no one talking about the great Andre Ward fight that is happening in 24hrs.Dirty casuals only care about Saul and Pac and act like they know boxing. Shameful shit.

    For yall real fans the weight pic



    And now cue the Kova fans to come try highjack thread. But lets not. Wards not.

    Ward's eyes looked as stoned as an unfaithful woman under Sharia Law......

    This fight is an abomination in more ways than one. I'll pass and probably watch the Olympics or the UFC card.

    There's no buzz about it because its a pointless mismatch.

    Lol that's sad . Makes me wonder if they will invest in promoting Kov va Ward .


    Was reading up how promoters got lazy due to networks paying for the product so need to promote . Boxing has always been grass roots. ( sound familiar ) . I hope the UFC doesn't fall into that trap but it seems it will soon based on rumors

    Wait, they guy who fights once every other year is having a rematch against... Who?

    Was the first fight good at least?

    +edit What the fuck lol.

    $30k to fight Ward? Over $800k for Ward?

    Amazing how Ward went from #1 P4P and future super star to this.

    See that type of thinking is why Boxing is dying. Look at on the CRAP UFC put on and how their fans eat jt up mattet what. UFC Fans dont care what bum they got off the street to fight in the cage, they still get HYPED for it but Boxing dont get the same way. We should all be more like Rob and love everyfight no matter what.

    Nah, fights like this- yet ANOTHER tune up fight for Ward- is why no one gives a shit about him right now. Make no mistake the people most excited about the Ward/Kovalev fight are Kovalev fans who are going to be let down when Ward shuts him down.

    Boxing doesn't need multiple Andre Ward showcase fights. It needs Andre Ward against guys who actually have some slim chance at beating him or at the very least being competitive with him.

    Part of what makes boxing great is that drama, that "anything can happen" feeling when two top guys fight each other.

    Andre Ward getting almost a million dollars for a gimme fight is another reason why its so hard to make big fights today.

    UFC rarely ever has athletes on the level of Andre Ward.

    Oops, I misread "mismatch" as "rematch"...

    I'm neither more or less excited. Video games and/or porn will be more exciting.
