His style is boring for most of the fans. I'm an SOG fan BTW.

He's not in a division that Americans care about a lot, he should try to be more entertaining, he keeps getting hurt, he isn't a good self promoter and he won't travel, he could be rich in Germany for real

Andre Ward is a great fighter. Unfortunately, most of the fans wants trash talkers and brawlers. Like Floydie, his last fight was snoozer to the max. IF you watch it, you will be having narcolepsy :lol: I just dont get why fans do not support or like him. :?

For me, he's the current best boxer... He's not famous because of he doesn't have that KO power that may excite viewers...

promoter's fault, he's under-hype, lack of labeling. look @ mathysse "we have new pacquiao" agad ang label naka KO lang :lol: :lol: :lol:

-He always fights in Oakland
-no knockout power
-not that flashy, and too much "God talk". If you fight that boring, conservative, slightly dirty Hopkins style you gotta make up for it with some trash talk.

He's a great boxer though, and for some reason I always pull for him. Always finds a way to win and adjust to his opponents styles. very intelligent. I'm a fan of the 160 to 175 weight class.

great fighter but his style is not fan friendly for casual boxing fans.
