by Edward Chaykovsky

Former two division champion Amir Khan watched his countryman Carl Froch lose a twelve round unanimous decision to Andre Ward on Saturday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Khan was impressed with Ward's ability to adjust to the Nottingham boxer's advances, over and over again.

"[Froch] needed a fast early start, but Ward knew exactly what to do. He had a Plan A, a Plan B and a Plan C.
