Ward's "headbutt & hold" style does nothing for his popularity, in contrast to Lucian Bute's spectacular KOs.
Ward should of fought on the road, that I agree with but I can't agree with the last two points. The Super Six Final was always going to be in America, it's in the contract that every fighter signed. Problem was none of the green Americans(excluding taylor) was supposed to do much at all. Don't blame Ward for where the finals are held, that was on SHO. Butes kayos are nice and may attract casual fans to his events but he is beating no bodies, while Ward has been fighting top fighters. You can kayo as many over matched opponents, I'd still rather watch the fighter that is beating top guys, even if it is hard on the eyes.
