Now, don't get me wrong, I'd back Maiiii to beat Ping Ping and I'd back Ward to beat Bute. But how they both get a "W" in the minds of NSB fanboys because they beat opponents who beat them is... ludicrous.
The Froch-Ward-Bute one is the worst. At least Maiiiii/Marquez are both counterpunchers. But Bute was taken out with power punching. Now, I like Ward and I think he's skilled, but...
It's like how Hopkins, Jones and Toney "would have beat any version of Calzaghe, Eubank and Benn"
Or "prime Tyson beats Lewis easy".
They never have any reasoning for why said fighter would win.
They just would, and don't ask why, ok.
I don't mind if you think they would win, i'll admit that they might even be favorite. But provide some breakdown or it's just innane dross.
