Andre Ward: Froch Rematch Makes Sense, UK is Possible

Carl Froch immediately set his sights on avenging the other blot on his record after overcoming his first conqueror Mikkel Kessler in a scintillating super-middleweight unification fight. Froch's only career defeats have come at the hands of the Dane three years ago and the outstanding American Andre Ward 20 months later. Froch, the defending IBF champion, atoned for his defeat at the hands of Kessler, earning a unanimous verdict in a brutal 12-round thriller at the 02 Arena, and is now targeting a fight with Ward on home soil.

However, Ward is not sure if the rematch would take place in the UK, but anything is possible. He says Froch's promoter, Eddie Hearn, needs to get on the phone and present the proper financial offer to make it happen.

"At this stage of my career I'm open for any fight that makes sense. A rematch makes sense. I don't know if it would be in the U.K. or if it would be in the United States, but Froch's promoter needs to show how bad he wants it here. They need to understand I don't have to come here. If I come, it's because I want to and I need a reward," Ward said.

I think Ward wins hands down and I think Ward would be normally correct in saying that he doesn't have to go to the UK, just like Floyd does not have to fight outside of Las Vegas. Both Ward and…

[QUOTE=Hanton11;13417128]They're going to watch Froch. No-one in the UK is paying to see Ward.[/QUOTE] Brits are not that stupid -- on the contrary... (Please read my other postings related to the Froch vs Ward topic... Froch has little time left,…
