Froch Expects Ward To Bend By The Middle Rounds

By Chris LaBate

WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch believes his punching power will begin to wear down Andre Ward by the middle rounds of their October showdown in Atlantic City. Ward, staking his WBA title, will depend heavy on his speed and boxing ability. He wants to break Ward's mental state by pushing him around with his heavy power shots.

"It'll get inside his head, that's for sure, and it's always good to get inside your opponent's head. But I mean what I say and I stand by it. He's not a big puncher and anybody who can't punch against me will struggle because I walk them down, get in front of them and they realise they're in deep water around rounds four and five when the big shots come I'm just letting him realize who he's in with and maybe get inside his mind," Froch told Sky Sports Ringside.

Froch is still going to use his long jab to set up the hard shots, and expects to walk away with two titles on October 29.

"I've got a lot of range on it and I punch harder than him. The jab is such an important punch, People neglect it and I've been known to neglect it of late. But since I've started boxing a little bit more I've found my jab a lot easier when I'm in there," Froch said.

[QUOTE=hitem27;11087958]all those fights were clear cut wins for Ward, he lost about 4 rounds total all those fights combined. Froch leaves himself wide open and really has no boxing skills compared to Ward he barely beat glen johnsons old ass.…
