“But on Saturday Andre Ward showed more of his soul than he could in any television interview, and the desperation with which he fights is more endearing than any forced repartee with Max Kellerman. He possesses the truest form of toughness, because maiming those you’re supposed to, as Kovalev had done before meeting ‘S.O.G.’, is more exhibition than competition, and never forces the victor to ask himself what he’ll endure to win. Far more difficult is excelling in circumstances in which making the effort isn’t much fun. While the perception of Kovalev had been one of indomitability, Ward turned reality into an instrument of his will and made clear this perception was false.” –From “The Appealing Ruthlessness Of Andre Ward” by Eliott McCormick
