Johnson: Froch Doesn't Have What it Takes To Get By Me!

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

GLEN JOHNSON insists he will brush aside Carl Froch before moving on to become undisputed world super-middleweight champion at the ripe old age of 42.

The Jamaican says he is in the best shape of his life and is confident of beating Nottingham bruiser Froch.

He said: “I have tremendous respect for Carl. You have to have tremendous respect for someone who has won the world title twice.

“But he doesn’t have what it takes to get by me.

“Carl has a lot of strengths which are obvious, but I won’t tell you what his weaknesses are because it is up to me to exploit them.

“Let’s just say that I have my game plan ready.

“He has the ability to keep going no matter what is happening and that is something that no tape measure will ever be able to tell you. He is a good, consistent fighter.

“I know it will be a diffi cult fight for me and I rate Carl very highly. But right now he is standing in my way of reaching the final. I have a lot of respect for him because he has been in the tournament from the start and a lot of the good guys have dropped out.”

Tonight’s fi ght is the semi-fi nal of the World Super Six tournament, designed to fi nd the undisputed world champion with the winner meeting Andre Ward in the fi nal at the end of the year.

Johnson added: “I am the one who aims to be there.

“It is my destiny. OK, I rank him as a very good fighter and he is certainly in the top three in the Super Six.

“But I have the firepower necessary to finish him off.

“I know what I have to do and I know that it will be me and not him who will be meeting Andre Ward in the final.”

I bet Froch will make Johnson seriously consider retirement.

I think it will be a good fight regardless of who wins. Just hope that if Johnson does enough to win that they make sure to award him with the decision he would deserve.
