i've been watching rodriguez since he turned pro. he's never looked to me like a remarkable fighter, but he did stop denis grachev in one round in his last fight. his resume isn't spectacular, but he had some toughish matching when he was coming up under lou dibella. grachev, of course, is famous for his stoppage of sillakh, a great amateur and a LHW. he also did OK vs bute.

I like the stylists tradition -- with Gene Tunney, Sugar Ray Robinson a.s.o.
I like Rigondeaux and Mayweather. They deliver "stylist shows" actually.

... While HBO doesn't provide Rigo with any fights and any purses, the same HBO is putting more than $3 million in front of Ward in order to fight just nobody in a tune up. I suppose that Ward should be alone into the ring and get all the money.

If you watch the video, Ward says the agreement he signed is for more than they initially offered Rodriguez ($800K) but less than what Rodriguez was asking for ($1M). You have to assume that the offer now stands right around $900K for Rodriguez. If the HBO's offer for this fight was $3.15M as rumored, the split would be 70/30.

If Rodriguez walks away, he does not believe he can win this fight.

You're still not making yourself particularly clear.

Are you saying that Ward should offer Rodriguez more money?

I thin Haymon's trying to convince him to work with Showtime.

I think Ward needs Edwin more at this point i mean Edwin has other easier options to consider ...People are frustrated at Wards inactivity and so he is really needing a fight soon but to only offer £800,000 when 3 million is the profit margin is not the best offer !!! Id want more to face possibly the best in that division !!!

He knows he will lose, so he's making a laundry list of excuses. Pretty sad.

Default Fight Ward later now is not good

Rodriguez should wait a year or so before fighting the boring dull Andre Ward. Ward has no appeal or no career let that nothingness of Ward play out. Do not fight now.
