ONTARIO, Calif. -- Andre Ward (27-0, 14KOs) was excellent Saturday, as he outclassed Edwin Rodriguez in his first fight in 14 months.

Ward showed no signs of ring rust and seems ready to take on the best. So who's next?

The public is clamoring for a bout with middleweight crusher Gennady Golovkin, but Ward isn't necessarily sold on GGG's credentials.

"I got no problem fighting anybody anytime. Iím at this stage of my career where itís whatever," Ward told BoxingScene.com following the bout. "Iím not ducking those guys. You guys make these guys out to be bogeymen and monsters. We as fighters, we donít think like that. I respect (Golovkin), but I see holes in his game.

"Heís a good fighter. I donít know what excellent is," Ward went on. "Heís a former silver medalist. The problem is as a professional, you donít know how good anybody is until they fight the best."

Ward isn't sure how good Golovkin is, but is the fight a possibility for 2014?

"Ask them if they want it at 168 (pounds) right now," Ward said. "I donít see them asking for that. I see them saying anybody from 160 to 175, but when theyíre pressed, I donít see him calling me out. Stop beating around the bush and get straight to it. I donít see them calling me out. Iím not going to negotiate a fight, not here right now. I have no problem fighting anybody as long the situation is right."

Ward has constantly proven himself time and time again, yet there are still doubters, why? Haters, who were hating from the start are going to continue to discredit him for everything he has accomplished. Keep finding excuses for his victory's and he'll keep proving you wrong.

[QUOTE=TLC8]Ward says he sees holes in GGG's game? I'm sure GGG sees holes in Ward he can take advantage of. Gennady is a warrior. Sergio won't fight him. You don't hear Chavez Jr calling him out. Cotto would rather fight Canelo. Canelo would rather fight Cotto. Macklin got destroyed, Murray ran ...
