There is also no anti Ward to build ward up on.
If there was a SMW Anti Ward. Some Jesus hating freak who knocks out people and calls out Ward and God and make fun of his believes and life style,
then we got oursevles a mega mega fight rivalry
but there is no anti ward..
The only mega fight was Lucian Bute.. who just got ktfo by Carl Froch
a B rated Fighter.... who Ward boringly schooled.
The good news is
the anti ward might come
ward is only 27... anti ward for sure will appear and then you can see a SMW version of Floyd vs Pac debate
I see what you are saying....Ward is so serious and about his business it affects his marketability in some ways. He doesnt have the bad guy angle, isnt a huge puncher or brawler, but IMO he is the type of fighter most need to be like. He doesnt do that bs trash talk, knows his sport very well, and takes his craft seriously.
