Winning an Olympic gold medal, winning the Super Six, beating the best 175 pounder in the world (even if he did it at 168lbs,) and being undefeated. That's one hell of a resume.

I have him at #2 behind only Floyd. But Mayweather is getting older and is very inactive while Ward is just starting to hit his prime.

The #1 spot will be all his before long and he'll keep it for a while.

His recent record certainly looks a lot better than Mayweather's or Pacquiao's

nope. ward is best at super middleweight but i don't think he deserves to be placed number at no. 1 p4p. he has conquered just one division which in my eyes is not enough. donaire's recent performance was much better and should be placed higher than ward on the p4p scale.

Default No, I mean Hell NO!

Ward's style is painful to watch, period! This guy strictly fights at home all the time and other than his "hometown" fans, he has none! He has zero personality an ugly style and holds more than Bernard "The Hugger" Hopkins! His win over Dawson wasn't that impressive, Dawson looked like he just wanted to get it over and get out of town. It as if he didn't even show up to fight, so if you think that was Ward's greatest win to date your in trouble!

Ward is currently in his prime and the scary part is that he keeps getting better. Is Ward the best fighter in boxing?

More and more he continues to impress but then when I re-watch some of Mayweather's recent fights I'm not so sure if I'm ready to say he is. Based on recent accomplishments you gotta go with Ward over anyone else though.
