Froch Vows: Andre Ward is Not Going To See This One!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC super middleweight champion Carl 'the Cobra' Froch (28-1, 20KOs) is going through an intense training camp in Sheffield, preparing for his October 29th unification with WBA champion Andre Ward (24-0, 13KOs) in Atlantic City. Froch-Ward is the final bout of the Super Six Tournament. Froch is preparing the perfect plan to overcome the boxing ability of Ward, who many view as the favorite to win. The Nottingham boxer will aim to get the best possible sparring partners, including Edwin Rodriguez and Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin.

"We know what approach we need for the Ward fight and am completely confident of our tactics to enable us to bring home the belts. During the first half of camp I'll be sparring a mix of some of the Olympians. The amateurs such as middleweight Anthony Agogo and heavyweight Warren Baister are perfect for the earlier work we shall be doing. They box and move well and have a good blend of attributes to get me into fight mode," Froch told

"Then later, probably Stateside actually, I'll be looking at people like Kid Chocolate and Edwin Rodriguez who's coming back up to speed. There's a few other people in mind who's names I wont mention. But they can box and fight. Don't worry, the prep for Ward will be meticulous and we've got all game plans covered."

Froch is promising to display a new version of the man who fought tough battles with Andre Dirrell, Mikkel Kessler and Glen Johnson. He plans to surprise Ward with different fight weapons and a different in-ring style to deal with Ward's tactics.

"And trust me, you'll see a better version of 'The Cobra' on the 29th October. Ward thinks he knows what is coming, but he's not gonna see this one." concluded Froch "He can switch hit or whatever he feels like but we've got a different approach."

As a fan of Froch, he indeed does hold a win over Dirrell..But all you have to do is is watch the fight from round 1-12 WITHOUT bias, and count the punches landed by both fighters, and the winner is…

[QUOTE=peplz;11005319]Maybe that would make sense if it wasn't Carl Froch that was doing all of the holding which you would have to be in serious denial to not see.[/QUOTE] That was a clear vid that showed Dirrell's holding clear as…
