Andre Ward has told Carl Froch's promoter Eddie Hearn to "pick up the phone" and make him an offer if he wants a rematch in 2013. Ward, the WBA and WBC super middleweight champion, plans to defend his titles again in February or March against Kelly Pavlik. Ward doubts that Froch, the IBF king, or WBA "regular" champ Mikkel Kessler are serious about fighting him.
"I would love it," Ward told Sky Sports about the possibility of facing Froch again. "I think Kessler and Froch are made for each other. But I don't think either one of them wants to fight me. I think they should stop misleading the fans and be honest.
"Neither Hearn or Sauerland (Kessler's promoters) have made us an offer to fight here in the States, or anywhere else in the world."
"Pick up the phone and make us an offer if you guys say you want this rematch. If you're that confident in Froch, pick up the phone."
