Carl Froch: If I Hit Ward's Jaw, I'll Do Serious Damage

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch would like to reward his loyal fans by knocking out WBA champion Andre Ward on October 29th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Froch has not scored a knockout in the Super Six Boxing Classic. He won a close split decision over Andre Dirrell, lost a close decision to Mikkel Kessler, dominated Arthur Abraham and won a majority decision over Glen Johnson in the semi-finals. Now the final bout of the Super Six remains and Froch wants to close the tournament with a statement making knockout.

"A perfect fight for me is to outbox my opponent and catch up with him late in the fight, round nine, ten, 11, then get a stoppage to excite the fans," Froch told Sky Sports News. "That's what I like doing. I've been disappointed in my last fights, not because I've not been in great fights, but because I've not got a stoppage. I'm confident against Ward that when I connect with a hurtful shot on the jaw section of the cranium, I'll do some serious damage."

[QUOTE=Squizz;10975957]One thing in here I don't see being mentioned, it Froch's ever-apparent lack of defense. A 42 Glenn Johnson was tagging him repeatedly, and won four rounds on my card. Unless Froch learns some defense REAL QUICK, he's going to…

I don't think Froch will win, but at +200 it might be a good idea to drop some money on him if you're into gambling.
