Ward vs. Abraham this Saturday
By Scott Gilfoid: This Saturday night, the best fighter in the Super Six tournament, WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (23-0, 13 Ko’s), will put Arthur Abraham (32-2, 26 KO’s) out of the Super Six tournament when the two fighters meet up at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. For some foreigners not familiar with the United States and even less familiar with California, Carson is nowhere near Oakland, California, the home city of Ward. Carson is 390 miles from Oakland, so this is hardly a home fight for Ward. He’s going to be out there pretty much all alone with a small band of his followers. The thing is, Ward doesn’t need a big crowd for him to win.
Ward has got the talent to beat Abraham without controversy or losing control of his emotions and fouling like crazy. Ward will be totally under control this Saturday and will show the U.S and fans around the world what a quality fighter looks like when he takes care of Abraham without any problems. For Abraham, he’s really got some bad luck of having to face Ward at this point. Abraham has lost two out of his last three fights to Andre Dirrell and Carl Froch, and is now desperate not only to keep from being eliminated from the Super Six tournament but also to keep from having his career go down the tubes with another loss.
To interrupt his losing streak, Abraham fought some unknown fighter by the name of Stjepan Bozic in his last fight and looked terrible in the fight until Bozic went down with a hand injury in the 2nd round. It turned out to be a wasted fight for Abraham because he got nothing from the fight, and looked just as slow and wide open on defense as he’s looked in his losses to Dirrell and Froch.
This fight is going to be one-sided with Abraham getting badly schooled by Ward. He doesn’t have the ability to compete with Ward and he’s going to get humiliated in this fight.
