Ward Rises: The BoxingScene Pound-for-Pound Update

by Cliff Rold

Andre Ward was already considered by most one of the better fighters in the world.  However, prior to last Saturday’s Super Six final, his record had only one really superlative win.  It now has two and in style.

Carl Froch had faced some of the stiffest competition in all of boxing dating back to his first title win over Jean Pascal.  Some of the fights were close, but no one had soundly defeated him.  Ward did, building a lead and then enduring some strong late rallies, winning almost every round in almost all but two judges eyes.

Now reigning as the lineal Super Middleweight king, Ward joins the upper echelon, vaulting over the previously more accomplished Froch.  Froch exits to just outside the top ten, his quality run not forgotten.  Only three surefire Hall of Famers reside ahead of Ward.  Is he on his way to punching his own ticket to Canastota?

Only time will tell.

Also re-entering the top ten is Bantamweight Anselmo Moreno.  Arguably the best defensive fighter in the game after Floyd Mayweather, Moreno pitched a gem against Vic Darchinyan.  Moreno has been an underground favorite for a while.  The rest of the world is catching up.

Without further ado, the final pound-for-pound update of 2011.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]Regardless, Mares won the tournament. And has performed well against the likes of Yonnhy Perez, Vic Darchinyan, and Joseph Agbeko (twice.) If you ask me that resume compares favorably against Chemito's.[/QUOTE] Agree. I think they're very close. Sidorenko, Monshipour,...

[QUOTE=jrosales13]And, the only reason that Mares won the "version of the S6" is because it wasn't the S6 it was just 4 and Moreno wasn't invited. [/QUOTE] Regardless, Mares won the tournament. And has performed well against the likes of Yonnhy Perez, Vic Darchinyan, and Joseph Agbeko (twice....

Mares doesn't have a better resume than Moreno. And, the only reason that Mares won the "version of the S6" is because it wasn't the S6 it was just 4 and Moreno wasn't invited. He would have been if it was actually the version of 168 S6. I don't care where anyone wants to rank them P4P....B...

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]Abner Mares deserves to be on the list. He won the bantamweight version of the "Super Six" and an argument can be made that his resume is better than Anselmo Moreno's (who also deserves to be on the list.)[/QUOTE] I agree, but I got him slightly ahead of Mares because of ...

[QUOTE=MrSillery]So Ward beat someone who wasn't even in the top 10 P4P and that make him jump from #9 to #5 ???? Ward is great Ward is a top 10 P4P I thinlk that sooner than later, he'll deserve to be in the top 5 P4P.... but not now, it's too early ... remember that some people use to p...
