Khan: Andre Ward Thinks Groves Will Beat Carl Froch

By Edward Chaykovsky

Amir Khan says WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward believes George Groves will be the winner of Saturday's rematch with Carl Froch on Saturday night at Wembley. Khan and Ward are training stablemates under Virgil Hunter, who happens to be in London as he'll work the corner of Brandon Gonzales on the Froch-Groves undercard with James DeGale. Ward won a twelve round decision over Froch several ago in the final bout of the Super Six tournament.

Khan told Sky Sports: "When I spoke to Andre Ward last, he thinks George might take the fight because of his superior boxing skills. He thinks the last fight would have taken a lot out of Froch, especially when he was put down in the first round. He thinks George will take the fight.

"It's going to be a great clash of styles. Both of them wanted the rematch and it's hard to say who's going to win. I think it's a 50-50 fight and people don't know what to expect."

Groves may not want to thank the ref who rescued him at the time, but the ref allowed Groves to fight another day and not take too much punishment, to the point, Groves thinks it is Froch who came out…
