Photos: Carl Froch Working Out For Glen Johnson Bout

Photos: Tom Casino/SHOWTIME. WBC super middleweight champion Carl "The Cobra'' Froch participated in a brisk 30-minute media workout and then met with reporters for a half-hour Tuesday at Mendez Boxing Gym in New York City.

 

This Saturday, June 4, Froch (27-1, 20 KOs) will defend against former world champion  Glen "The Road Warrior" Johnson (51-14-2, 35 KOs) in a Super Six World Boxing Classic Semifinal live on SHOWTIME® (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from Adrian Phillips Ballroom at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.

The Froch-Johnson 12-round bout will be preceded on the telecast by a scheduled
10-rounder from Denmark between ex-world champion Mikkel Kessler
(43-2, 32 KOs) and world-ranked Mehdi Bouadla (23-3, 11 KOs) that will be
shown on same-day delay.

"Rachael (Cordingley) texted me that our son, Rocco, is walking. He took his first steps and I missed it. And I'm going to take that out on Johnson,'' said a fit and confident Froch, who boasted Tuesday about being only two pounds over the 168-pound limit after a big breakfast and just eating lunch. "Johnson is perfect for me. He's made for me. He'll be right there, right in front of me.

"The winner of this fight is going to the Final of the best boxing tournament in the world, the Super Six World Boxing Classic. And the winner is going to be me. I heard Johnson's team talking about an easy fight. They can think what they want. I'm not concerned with that rubbish.''
