Andre Ward Rips Froch-Kessler II: Jabs Carl, Eddie Hearn

By Luke Furman

WBC/WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward has ripped IBF king Carl Froch and his promoter Eddie Hearn. Ward says the two men are "misleading the fans" when they make comments regarding their desire to put together a potential rematch. A year ago, Ward defeated Froch by way of a unanimous decision to win the Super Six Tournament. Froch is now inching closer to a rematch with Mikkel Kessler, who holds the WBA's "regular" title at the weight. Froch has been demaning a Ward rematch in the press, but Ward says the Nottingham star wants nothing to do with him.

"Listen, I'm not interested in anything Froch says. Carl Froch would rather pick on Kessler than fight me! He's going after the weak link! That's fine, but Carl Froch and Eddie Hearn need to stop misleading the fans! Tell the truth. You don't want to fight! I hope Carl Froch and Kessler don't fight around a holiday, wouldn't want the big man to lose focus 3 days before the fight," Ward blasted on the social networks.

Ward needs to shut the hell up. Steve Kim is reporting that Ward won't be able to fight Pavlik now in March either. I guess he just expects everyone to wait around for when he can fight again....

[QUOTE=JAB5239;12858842][FONT="Tahoma"][COLOR="Navy"]My question is why was the fight venue a stumbling block, because Kessler didn't want to rematch in the US?[/COLOR][/FONT][/QUOTE] Kessler has said that he'd have no problems fighting in the US aain. He even said he was ready for…

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;12857989]I agree. Beside that, while Froch wanted Kessler next I believe Kessler wanted Ward before that but according to Kessler the fight venue was the stumbling block in negotiations.[/QUOTE] No. The stumbling block was that Ward is injured…
