Robert Guerrero: Ward-Froch Scorecard Was Ridiculous

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Former champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero, now known as the prediction king, continued his streak of picking winners with last Saturday's super middleweight fight between Andre Ward and Carl Froch at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Ward won a twelve round unanimous decision to unify the WBA/WBC titles and claimed the Super Six cup. Guerrero picked Ward by way of a dominating performance. The final scores, unanimous for Ward, were a bit odd. Two judges scored 115-113 for Ward, while the British judged scored it 118-110, a more realistic story of the fight.

"I factor in a lot of different scenarios when I pick fights. I knew that the judges were going to have extra pressure on them to keep it close after last week’s so-called controversial decision with Amir Khan. One judge scored four of the first five rounds for Froch...ridiculous. None the less Ward dominated as I predicted," Guerrero said.

the 115-113 was way off & 1 judge, Metcalf is supposed to be ok, obviously not...maybe some younger judges need a chance instead of the same 1's...fresh eyes and minds won't hurt...listen up WBA/WBC...
