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. The scores were 115-113, 115-113 and 118-110. Froch tried hard to crack Ward's defenses, but he couldn't. 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.
