WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch believes his opponent on Saturday, Glen Johnson, is struggling to make the division limit of 168-pounds. Johnson has been fighting at light heavyweight for several years, but recently moved down, at age 42, to the super middleweight division for the sole purpose of entering the Super Six tournament. Saturday's fight in Atlantic City is a semi-final bout in the Super Six tourney.

"It was a little boost for me to see my opponent, Glen Johnson, running down the beach in this heat - with his tracksuit on, and sweating like a madman. He's obviously struggling at the weight and shedding some pounds. And that can be a decisive factor in terms of energy after five or six rounds. If he's training like this [on Thursday] and not eating and taking hydration out of his body - it could be a big problem for him on Saturday night," Froch said to BBC Radio.

Frcoh revealed that he entered a hospital on Thursday to clean out a blocked left eardrum. He says the minor ear problem won't be a factor in the fight.

"I just come out of the hospital. I had a blocked left eardrum from a couple of punches that I took. I think a bit of wax got pushed against the eardrum. I feel unblocked, clear headed and back in balance again. I feel [that I'm] in tip top shape and ready to do business on Saturday night," Froch said.

I wonder if Glen lands flush on that ear if it could become a problem. He was landing in that area during the Green fight.

I think Froch is like a lot of American Black guys. He talks sh!t to put the pressure on himself to preform better. Cuz after you talk all that noise you gotta bring it to back it up.

I dont think the weight will be too much of an issue for Johnson. He is disciplined, he weighed 167 in his last fight, and even at LH he often used to come in fairly light. I am sure that both guys will be up for this one. WARRR..... Froch, no Johnson... I mean Froch, no Joh..... aaaah she...

Let me see here. First Froch talks out of one side of his neck and says he's going to win every round. Now he sees Johnson getting ready for war and he starts wishing Glen can't make weight. Believe me, it would be a lot better for him if he hadn't seen Johnson working out at all. He knows this i...

Sounds like Froch is worried about Glen's newfound nutrition regimen.
