Shumenov: I'd Love To Fight Carl Froch, Andre Ward Too

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com recently spoke to WBA light heavyweight champion Beibut Shumenov who has been inactive over the last 12 months.  Shumenov said that he has been working out and that they hope to finalize his next fight soon. 

"I am always in the gym. I am always working out and I am ready. Hopefully in the next week or two we will announce my next fight,". Shumenov revealed.

Two names that Shumenov mentioned that he is interested in are Andre Ward and Carl Froch. Ward is targeting a late summer/fall return while Froch avenged his loss to Mikkel Kessler last month in a thrilling victory and plans on returning to the ring in the fall as well.  If either fighter wants to move up in weight and challenge for a title in another weight class, Shumenov said he is more than willing to accommodate them. 

"I would love to fight Carl Froch. If Froch wants to fight a champion he can fight me for my title. Mikkel Kessler would be good too but he just lost. If Andre Ward wants to move up we would like to fight him too. We are interested in all of those guys," Shumenov told BoxingScene.com.

Bellew will probably fight you in your front garden if you want, for a tenner.

Froch? Ward? Shumenov dont stand a chance against both of them. I would also favour Kessler over Shumenov.

He still has the WBA title he was gifted in a robbery after not defending for over a year or fighting anyone?

Shumenov: "I'd love to fight ever"

Comment by hitking on 06-12-2013

Ward and Froch have made it clear that they are not moving up to light heavyweight. So if he wants these fights, he'll have to move down to 168, and not an oz more.
