Andre Ward: Froch Cashing Out, Wants Weak Link Chavez

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward discussed his rival, IBF champion Carl Froch, who always states that he wants to have rematch with the undefeated Olympic gold medal winner. Ward easily decisioned Froch several years ago in the final bout of the Super Six tournament.

Recently, Froch has been very vocal about facing former champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in a fight likely to take place in Las Vegas - if Chavez is able to defeat Bryan Vera in their March 1st rematch.

Ward told BoxingScene.com that he doesn't blame Froch for looking for a less theatening challenge.

"Froch doesn't want to fight [me]. Right now Froch is behind the scenes trying to get what he perceives to be the weak link, which is Chavez Jr. But I can't blame him. Froch is 36-years-old or 37 or whatever he is, he's trying to cash out. He doesn't want  a real challenge like [George] Groves or even myself. And that's fine, but don't bring my name up as much as you do and act like you want to fight when really you don't. Be honest with the fans," Ward told BoxingScene.com.

Doesn't matter anyway. Neither of them will get the Chavez fight, Froch is fighting Groves. Chavez will fight Sakio Bika as a loss to Brian Vera somehow qualifies one to become the number 1 ranked fighter by the WBC.

Wasn't Ward the one contemplating the idea of a big fight against Chavez Jr, he even said it publicly the day that Chavez Jr got the Vera gift!!! I prefer to see Froch vs Chavez Jr than Ward vs Chavez…

Nobody cares about God Boy's boring ass fights. Even Ward's biggest fans would rather watch a Froch fight. Andre's just bitter that Froch is the big dog when it comes to $$.

How do you **** on a guy for doing the same s*** that you're trying to do?

Froch is doing what he is supposed to do get the most money fight there is a PPV event in Vegas against Chavez Jr. Groves will always be there for the rematch which is another good payday for Froch later.
