Mikey Garcia: Underrated fighter with overlooked power. A "pure winner."

Juan Manuel Lopez: Trying to reclaim his footing and show that he get get back in the mix in the division.

That's it. Nothing too notable from Ward here, which is a shame. Ward is a great technical fighter who I'm sure is capable of providing more detailed analysis than this very cursory look at each man's career trajectory. In the future, let's hope HBO gives him more room to offer some of the true nuts and bolts analysis that only a world class fighter can.
