Carl Froch: I Would Fight Andre Ward in Las Vegas

IBF/WBA "regular" super middleweight champion Carl Froch told the BBC that he would be willing to have a rematch with Andre Ward in Las Vegas. Froch had previously stated he would only fight Ward in the UK. But Froch seems to have budged from his position and says he is open to facing Ward in the United States - if the fight lands in a Las Vegas venue. Ward previously won a twelve round unanimous decision over Froch in the final round of the Super Six tournament back in 2011 in Atlantic City.

"If the fight wasn't going to happen and someone said it could happen in Las Vegas then I'd definitely say 'yes, let's do it'," said Froch. "I know it's the United States but let's get it on. Las Vegas is kind of a neutral venue, believe it or not, because it is its own state of Nevada. They have got their own commissioner. I've always wanted to fight in Las Vegas in the glitz and glamour, and have my name up in lights. That is one thing I've not had in my career."

Froch admits that Ward is not his next option at the moment.

"Let's keep [Ward] on ice at the minute because I've got other options," said Froch. "He is still in his rehab with his shoulder  so I can probably get a fight in before Christmas, and then in the spring or summer next year we can have a massive showdown with Ward."

In my opinion it seems that Froch is doing nothing more than simply talking. Everyone knows that whether or not Andre Ward style is boring soooo what!!!! To be the best you have to beat the best period!!! Andre Ward…
