Carl Froch: The Jab and Right Hand, The Tools To Win

By Chris LaBate

WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch (28-1, 20KOs) is planning to use his long jab to control the action against Andre Ward (24-0, 13KOs), the WBA champion, when they collide in a Super Six unification bout on October 29th at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. The Nottingham star wants to keep Ward at bay with the jab and then bang him with the right hand as he tries to come inside. But if all else fails, Froch is ready to go to war. 

"If I can keep him at range and every time he steps in - threaten him with the right hand or land the right hand and hit with it on the head or the body, and dictate the fight behind the jab. Plan A - is to hit and not get hit, use my jab, box and move. But if it comes down to it, I'll put it on him and take him into deep water and hit him with some heavy shots," Froch told Sky Sports Ringside.

[quote=The Weebler II;11080843]it's not Froch's instinct to sit on the outside, instinctively he looks to brawl and have a tear-up, his trainer has tried to discourage this where it wasn't needed. imo at most he might stay on the outside…

[QUOTE=JED46;11083220]After watching that vid, I'm glad he did! Look at how many times Dirrell holds, look at how many times he bends down so low that his head is below his waist! Froch was right to rough him up. Good…

[QUOTE=Light_Speed;11082874]A Carl Froch fan talking about fouls lol. You know how many times he hit Dirrell behind the head, hit during the break, hit him in the back, headlocked him and threw him down? [/QUOTE] After watching that vid, I'm…
