IBF/WBA "regular" super middleweight champion Carl Froch (31-2, 22KOs) is convinced Andre Ward (26-0, 14KOs) is struggling at the super middleweight limit because of his big frame. After reviewing some of Ward's recent fights, Froch says the undefeated boxer gets tired in the late rounds.
Due to injuries and postponed dates, Ward has only fought once since the December 2011 decision victory over Froch. In that same time frame, Froch fought three times and plans to fight again before the year is out.
“The next time we fight, if it happens in the UK, it will be one of the most exciting fights that we’ve ever seen because I know what to do. Rob has told me what to do and if I listen to him and get my shots off I will hurt Andre Ward and I will lay it on. He tires. He’s a big lad. He won a gold medal at light heavyweight and I think at super-middleweight he struggles," Froch said.
“If I stamp my authority early on against Andre Ward then I think I can really make him work late on and potentially stop him."
