Carl Froch: I Told Andre Ward, You Can't Knock Me Out!

Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City - Both Carl Froch and Andre Ward made the weight at the first attempt ahead of the final of the Super Six in Atlantic City on Saturday night. WBA super-middleweight champion Ward made the 168-pound limit on the money after WBC king Froch had tipped the scales half-a-pound lighter.

The 'Cobra' was happy to trade words with his opponent at the traditional face-off while Ward also made his thoughts known.

The Nottingham banger seemed very relaxed just over 24 hours before the biggest fight of his career, maintaining the belief that he holds the upper hand despite entering the fight as a big underdog.

"I do strongly believe - and that's one of the things I told him - that he can't knock me out," Froch told Sky Sports News.

"He's a very good fighter, he's not a big puncher but I can punch very hard, and I am in the ring tomorrow night to let him know I can punch hard, from round one to twelve if necessary."

The weigh-in was well attended by British fans looking for a victory that would go a long way towards atoning for the defeat of Amir Khan in Washington last week.

Ward can knock him out, whether he will is another topic altogether now.

Ward has more than enough pop to earn a fighter's respect and that's all he needs.

[QUOTE=-Kev-;11569554]I can see that will be Froch's victory party, Ward not being able to knock him out. While Ward will be celebrating with the Super 6 Cup, with his family and close friends, and looking ahead to his bright future,…

It is hard to see this fight ending in a knockout.
