Froch: Ward is There To Be Beaten, Come To The UK!

Carl Froch immediately set his sights on avenging the other blot on his record after overcoming his first conqueror Mikkel Kessler in a scintillating super-middleweight unification fight. IBF champion Froch's only career losses have come at the hands of the Dane three years ago and outstanding American Andre Ward 20 months later.

The Cobra atoned for his defeat at the hands of Kessler, earning a unanimous verdict in a brutal 12-round thriller at the 02 Arena, and is now targeting a fight with Ward on home soil.

"I said before this fight that the winner should really be concentrating on moving on and my only other loss was against pound-for-pound number two in the world Andre Ward," Froch, who added the WBA belt tonight, told Sky Box Office.

"What a fantastic fighter he is and a great, great champion, but he is there to be beaten.

"But not over in America - let's get him over here. I went over to America and now let's get him over to England."

The defeats earlier in his career will seem a distant memory for Froch, who has fought on another level in his last three contests.

The victory, by margins of 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113 on the judges' scorecards, was arguably as impressive as his five-round demolition of Lucian Bute just over a year ago.

I do think Ward schools Froch in a rematch but the fact is, Froch holds all the cards here and can really dictate where the fight happens. I don't know why but I feel sad when great fighters like Ward…

It's pretty much the same people who are now saying this: "Ward gets the lions share and to dictate terms because he's the champion, even though he's not the draw." who were the ones who previously said this: "Floyd gets…

[QUOTE=Corelone;13415463]He's there to be beaten, but not there, here. Sounds like Froch's afraid of leaving home for the same reason he enjoys it. Home cooking.[/QUOTE] Someones smoking the crack... Froch has fought away from home 6 times... Ward has erm,…
