After suffering an early knockdown, Ward rebounded in the second half of the fight with an incredible display of will and skill that the judges decided was the difference. Now the question is which fighter is more determined to impose his will in the rematch?

Andre "can't get no respect but i don't care" Ward" Then makes sulky face and goes home head down... like the biggot with a chip on his shoulder that he is.

Let's hope andre ward doesn't charge head first like the last fight. He's one of the worst in the game at it. He dips low and shoots up with it, he throws a right and follows through with the head…

Golden State Warriors and Andre Ward...2017 will be the year of the Bay Area.

I liked him better with a shaved head instead of that raccoon or birds nest on top of it. [IMG]http://static4.businessinsider.com/image/565c6d4dc2814424008b6098-1645-823/wheeler%20creed%20warner%20bros.jpg[/IMG]

[QUOTE=Dean_Razorback;17730559]shadow clinching If you watch their first fight, Kov was clinching just as much as Ward was! No one wants to bring that up because there's just so much hate for Ward.
