Froch-Ward Unification Will Land in AC on October 29

By Joe Delaney, courtesy of The Daily Star

CARL FROCH’S dream of headlining in Las Vegas has been shattered by a pair of scheduling conflicts. The WBC super-middleweight champion will meet Andre Ward in the Super Six final on October 29, but their clash now looks likely to take place in Atlantic City.

Their unification showdown was pencilled in for Mandalay Bay Events Centre, Las Vegas, but the venue is hosting another event on the same night. Casinos are also reluctant to stage the Froch fight close to Manny Pacquiao’s super-fight against Juan Manuel Marquez, on November 12.

Froch and Ward have been offered a December Vegas date, but TV bosses bankrolling the fight will not shift dates.
 
It now looks certain Froch will return to the American east coast town where he defeated Glen Johnson last month, to seal his place in the final of the competition designed to discover the world’s top 12-stone boxer.

Ward also wants the fight in Las Vegas and moaned: “No disrespect to Atlantic City but there’s something about Vegas. It would be fitting for the Super Six final.”

[QUOTE=Hitman932;10776276]NYC gets crazy when their is a hometown guy or a Puerto Rican. In this case the fight lands in AC because fans are already going to be spending a pretty penny to travel, the last thing the promoters want…
