Is Andre Ward too much of a Spoiler to Become a Superstar?

By Dominic Sauboorah: I’ve seen some overrated fighters over the years, but no one like Andre Ward. I’ve seen a fair few of his fights and I wont lie he has shown to be very illusive in the ring whereby opponents do find it difficult to pin him down and land shots against him, which is one main reason as to why he is still undefeated.
