No one from the Super Six aside from Dirrell can be seen as elite.
Still, Ward has been more active against the best his division had to offer.
Broner isn't nearly as accomplished based solely off of Ward's super six efforts alone.
Both are talented. Both have tremendous potential. But so far IMO Broner has the more pleasing style as Ward's style is a bit ugly and unrefined.
But there is absolutely no comparison at this point between Ward and Broner as it pertains to P4P status. I don't think that Broner has honestly earned a spot on the list just yet .. even though he just easily dethroned the #1 LW in the world.
Now if Broner continues to fight the #1, 2 and 3 guys in whichever division he finds himself competing in, he'll be in a top position in no time.
You don't think Froch is elite? Kessler? Neither of them are elite? Then who at 168 should he have fought? Dirrell pulled out of their fight with a "head" injury.
