Before their fight on Saturday night, former champion Carl Froch taunted Andre Ward about his punching power. After twelve rounds of action at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, Ward won a twelve round unanimous decision over Froch to win the Super Six Boxing Classic and to unify the WBC/WBA titles. After the fight, Froch told that Ward is not a big puncher, but physically he's a very strong fighter and has the ability to push you around the ring.

"He was very defensive and very slippery. He does a lot of defensive things like Floyd Mayweather. I'm not saying he's Floyd Mayweather. He's not a big puncher but physically he's quite strong. He was a light heavyweight as an amateur. He won an Olympic gold medal as a light heavyweight, so I knew he would have something about him strength wise and he showed that in there. I lost the fight for sure and I got beat by the better man, I'm devastated," Froch said.

[QUOTE=LarryXXX]Ward hasn't fought in so long babies who were born during the Rodriguez fight are now potty trained and can walk[/QUOTE] I hope he get his ***** together. He's still young. I think longevity will be on his side because he doesn't rely on his physical attributes.

I agree with Froch. Watched some of his fights (Kessler, Abraham, Froch, and Bika). Ward was physically strong. That's why I think he beats Kovalev and Golovkin via UD.

[QUOTE=Light_Speed]Because his countryman Khan has been crying non stop about his decision loss so it's nice to see a fighter act like he's supposed to.[/QUOTE] You mean because he didn't cry like when he lost to Kessler.
