joking right? Outside of Ward fans, nobody cares about Andre. Yes h a fret fighter but his style isn't exactly fan friendly and not that entertaining in or out of the ring. On top of that, he doesn't draw worth a damn. How many PPVs has he sold? And he's suppose to step up once Floyd is gone?

If HBO had a choice between Broner or Ward, they would take Broner in a heartbeat.

To put in perspective, Adrian Broner's last fight against unknown Rees, drew about 1.4M views. That's more than any of Ward's fights, including the so called super fight between him and Dawson. And like LK mentioned, there simply isn't big enough names in his weight class to propel him to super stardom.

Who knows? Maybe if he keeps winnig, people will have to start taking notice. But as far as him being "boxing" after Floyd is done, doubt it.

It always amuses me when the media complains about guys not being able to draw. Who draws is 75% how they are covered. Put ward on hbo with 24/7 behind him, put him on the tv circuit have them call him the savior of boxing and tell him to talk some trash and voila you have a guy that draws.

Peterson easily beat Holt, was not expecting such a easy KO/TKO, I thought Holt would put up a bit more fight.

Peterson vs. Matthyse is going to be a good fight. Rigo needs to accept the VADA and USADA drug tests. I think he also hired Angel Heredia as his strength coach.

Hopefully it does not lead to Klitschko vs Thompson III, but didn't Price call out the Klitschko's? (or was it the other guy Fury?) Damn he was doing the funky chicken after he stood up, at least it was not one of the brother fighitng him he would have been out cold.

I seen it posted in Broners FB page. Broner needs to move up though.

I think Price will be alright..he has good work ethic and has his life in order from what I can see.

The bad part is, he had NO legs AT ALL after ONE knockdown in that fight...that's not good.
