Froch is Angry: I Should Not Be Fighting in Atlantic City!

By Mark Vester

WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch is not happy with having to face Glen Johnson at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on June 4. Froch wanted to stage his next fight before his loyal fans in Nottingham. The fight with Johnson is part of the semi-finals in the Super Six tournament. Froch's contract with Showtime, who coordinate the Super Six, directs the match to take place in America.

"It's not ideal," admitted Froch to the Nottingham Post. "I should be fighting in Nottingham, but what can I do? The venue [in Atlantic City] isn't great - it holds about 2,800, when I could be fighting in front of a full house in Nottingham. Still, it looks as though the final will be at Madison Square Garden, which would be awesome."
