For most “Fighter of the Decade” conversations, the boxers that likely come to mind would be Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao or Canelo Alvarez. However, SI senior writer Chris Mannix believes the fighter of the decade is Andre “Son of God” Ward. He retired with an undefeated record in 2017, retaining his WBA, IBF and WBO Light Heavyweight titles. For Mannix, Ward started the decade with massive wins, even if under-the-radar, and continued that momentum until the end of the decade, fighting Sergey Kovalev in his prime. Mannix breaks down his reasoning with Amy Campbell on what makes Ward deserving of decade’s best.
