By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (31-2, 22KOs)sent some stinging comments tothe king at 168, Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs). Froch lost a twelve round decision to Ward in 2011. Froch avenged his other career defeat on Saturday night at the O2 Arena, with a twelve round decision over Mikel Kessler. According to Froch, there was some tension when he told Ward, to his face, that he wasn't a very exciting fighter. Ward was sitting ringside at the O2 Arena as part of the broadcast team for HBO.

I had a little chat with him but I think I upset him because I said, stylistically, hes not the most exciting fighter. Nobody is really getting excited about Andre Ward when he fights and I think that got his back up," Froch said. I had a little chat with him and said, I dont mean any disrespect, Im just being honest. Im not talking personalities, Im talking boxing and your style would put a glass eye to sleep.

People dont rewind the tape and watch Andre Ward fight because hes effective, hes tricky and knows how to win a fight. Hes unbeaten since he was 12 years old, an Olympic gold medallist, unbeaten as a pro, but hes not that exciting."

[QUOTE=MurkaMan] In his last two fights he had the crowd going wild in ways Floyd and Rigo NEVER have[/QUOTE] With Rigo agree.. Floyd however, I suggest you watch some of his earlier fights. Start with Corrales and Gatti, if you are pressed for time.

[QUOTE=Zelong Dong]Ward is boring. Sick of the Sweet Science Professors on here talking non sense.[/QUOTE] I will NEVER compare Ward to Rigo and Floyd. Thosse two fighters are sometimes boring.

[QUOTE=LacedUp]Lol. How many times are HBO doing PPV without having any American fighter involved? Marquez-Pacman? Who else? Everything doesn't break down to whether or not you're on PPV in america. He makes more money than Andre Ward. If Ward was so damn exciting, he would make more than...

I terms of styles, I really don't see why people compare Ward and Mayweather. Mayweather and Rigondeaux I can understand, pure boxers who like to be on the outside, love the straight down the pipe and counter punching. Ward doesn't fight anything like them, he's a very good fighter, but he is mu...
