Froch Vows: The Super Six Trophy is Going To Great Britain

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Carl Froch will return to Sky Sports on June 4 to defend his WBC Super Middleweight title against Glencoffe Johnson. Froch will fight on Sky Sports for the first time since he entered the Super Six World Boxing Classic in 2009 winning widespread acclaim and admiration.

He has taken on and beaten some of the hardest opposition in his division, including wins over Andre Dirrell, Jermain Taylor, and most recently Arthur Abraham. The clash between Froch and Johnson at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City is also the first semi-final in the Super Six series. Victory over Johnson means Froch will face the winner of the other semi-final between Andre Ward and Arthur Abraham in the Super Six World Boxing Classic Final at Madison Square Gardens early in 2012..

"Kessler and I put on the best fight so far, and my last outing against the big-punching Arthur Abraham was probably the best individual performance too. To shine in such a world class tournament shows my pedigree," Froch said.

"Glencoffe Johnson is a tough, experienced operator who has shared the ring with Dawson, Hopkins, Tarver and knocked out a young Roy Jones. I'm going to run straight through him and book my spot in the final then grab that Super Six trophy with both gloves and bring it back to Great Britain.

"You're about to see the 'Cobra' in full swing and I can't wait. Sky Sports viewers are in for a treat!"

Speaking about the fight against Johnson, Sky Sports boxing commentator Jim Watt said: "Carl Froch is the fighter's fighter, I'm delighted that he is back on Sky Sports.

"The contest between him and Johnson is a great match-up, Johnson seems to be able to go on forever but Froch showed in his last fight against Abraham that he no longer has to rely on his toughness to get through, he used his skills and experience and everything came together for him.

"His toughness is suited to the Super Six series where there are hard fights and great fights and he is the one boxer whose performances have got better and better through it. He has a great chance of coming top overall."

[QUOTE=hyeduk;10488012]what performance? against who? He was losing by points against Taylor and got lucky. That split decision against Dirrell was a joke cos Dirrell won that fight. And it was not Froch who beat Abraham, it was Abraham who fought…

[QUOTE=OLD JUD;10487402]What is all this crap about Froch? let's deal with some FACTS eh? The British public have NEVER taken to him, contrast that to the support Calzaghe had. Froch was on the wrong end of a boxing lesson given…

Froch has the Johnson fight under control. Don't fancy his chances against Ward, but I'll be hoping he can pull a miracle. Always nice to see a sloppy guy like Froch slug his way to the pinnacle. :UK:
