Default Andre Ward MUST go to Europe. 168 in Europe=Bigger Crowds HIGHER revenues.

It's always been a bigger attraction in Europe as compare to the US.
Nigel BEnn- Chris Eubank had a third of UK Watching, massive crowds big revenues. Even in the 90's SMW has been Europe's favorite.

2000's Calzaghe sel out 50k+ in Europe. Kessler, Froch. The money is there, the crowd is there. I want Ward to go there and beat the elite to prove he can dominate away from home.

Let's see what kind of offers they make to Andre.

Kessler refused to fight Bute in Montreal for $3million so surely he will offer Ward much more than that to go to Denmark.

you dont go to europe to make your name and legacy.

you go to america.

just like roberto duran did.
just like alexis arguello did.
just like salvador sanchez did.
just like julio cesar chavez did.
just like barerra, morales, marquez did.
just like manny pacquiao did.

you can say andre ward should fight outside of oakland but that's about it.

Ward is the champion and is making good money where he is. If he feels like fighting abroad then good for him, but if you want the belt you got to go take it. Ward doesn't have to do ****.

I agree with this somewhat, but times have changed. Do you honestly think a Young Lennox Lewis today will fight at VEGAS? OR will a Young Lennox Lewis today be chasing Wladimir in Germany? Times have changed, especially when dealing with the 168 and the HW'S.


What you say is still true for WW'S, but it is no longer true for SMW'S or HW'S. For those divisions, the bigger fights is now in Europe.

Once again.. Do you believe a Prime Lennox Lewis today will fight Wlad in VEGAS? OR in London/Berlin?

Good money is nothing compared to all the money he's going to make if he fights Kessler in Denmark or Froch in England.

Business wise:

If it makes money it makes sense.

There's more money in Europe for 168, it makes sense.

This is such b/s, legacy comes from fighting the best and it's worth more if you beat the best in their backyard.

You would think so, but let's hear the offers first. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to lowball Ward.

how has times changed? the best 168-175 pounders are in america.

and why are you using hypothetical scenarios to back up your claim?

lets stick to reality. by the time a great heavyweight comes around the k bros will be long gone.
