I still give Ward credit if he beats Dawson at 168, but not as much as if it was at 175. At 175, it'd be a title in a 2nd weight class/2nd lineal title. It would be a big fight. I just don't see why Andre didn't seek out to fight him at 175. It would mean more.
I understand what you're saying. And I too would like the fight to be at 175 because I think that's the obvious next stage in Ward's career. But still, Dawson said that he would go down to 68 to fight Ward. I understand the whole "he doesn't get this much credit" argument, but Dawson was the one that brought it up.
