Mayweather Shreds Andre Ward: Broner is More Known!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Something rubbed WBC welterweight Floyd Mayweather Jr. the wrong way. During a recent interview with Fighthype.com, Mayweather took several shots at Andre Ward, the WBC/WBA super middleweight champion. Mayweather first took offense with Ward's nickname, S.O.G. [Son of God].

"He calls himself S.O.G. If I'm not mistaken, that stands for Son of God. Last time I checked, we're all God's children. When one fighter is facing another fighter, God don't choose sides. What's going to happen in life is going to happen. Everything is already planned out. Listen man, if you're going to be a pastor, go to church. If you're going to be a reverend, go to church. If you're going to be a boxer, be a boxer. I mean, one minute, they want to say all this S.O.G. stuff, and the next minute, they wanna go put tattoos on they body. I ain't never seen a pastor boxing. I ain't never seen a reverend boxing. I say a prayer that my opponent lives to fight another day and I live to fight another day. You got these guys trying to hurt a man on Saturday and then going to praise the Lord on Sunday," Mayweather said.

Then Mayweather took a few more shots after hearing that Ward would backing Robert Guerrero to win on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Not knocking Andre Ward, but he can't sell tickets nowhere. He can't sell tickets in Las Vegas. This is the only guy I know that's a gold medalist, but don't nobody know he's a gold medalist. He's a gold medalist, but he's making money like he don't even got a medal. Like I said before, Andre Ward, he's a good fighter, but who knows him? If you're not in Oakland, you don't even know who he is. He's getting older and time is ticking, so I mean, when is he going to ever leave Oakland and put assess in seats somewhere else?," Mayweather said.

"You know, you got fighters, sometimes, they speak on certain situations where the thing is this, like I always tell you before, when you're a fighter getting a million dollars, a million dollar fighter like Andre Ward, if anything, you need to come to my camp so you can learn the blueprint on how to sell out arenas worldwide. I got the blueprint on how to sell out arenas worldwide. We know Adrien Broner is more known than Andre Ward. He don't even have an amateur background. He's got a gold medal? Let me get it and I'll melt it down and get a medallion made."

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;13474889]Another funny thing is that after the Froch and Chavez Jr. fights Mexicans and Brits will know who Ward is but mainstream America still probably won't connect because he's not fighting another American star.[/QUOTE] So true but the…

Both guys same size, Ward beats Floyd today. I can't be the only one who thinks that.

What sad is that he's right. Ward is local in my area and therefore known, but not as much as you might think. He's super known in the boxing community, but most casual fans have never heard of him.
