It depends where the fight is held, outside of Oakland I'd have it a 50/50 fight. Unfortunately, Ward (like Sven Ottke back in the day) is clearly protected and given every advantage in Oakland, therefore Bika would have to win by KO

I remember Calzaghe v Bika, that fight was closer than the scorecards suggested

I thought Ward won, but the fight was closer than the scorecards indicated (I had it 115-113 Ward).

And without the ref helping Ward, Bika might have done well enough to deserve to win.

Great post, Ward is clearly protected in Oakland, which suits his style perfectly (allowing him to maul and cheat). Bika is game though, outside of Oakland I could see this fight going either way, the only problem is HBO have invested too much in Ward to see him lose a decision without them looking to profit from it, and Bika isn't profitable
