Tarver: Carl Froch Will Beat Johnson, Maybe Ward Too
By Chris LaBate
Former light heavyweight world champion Antonio Tarver is backing WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch to beat Glen Johnson in the semi-finals of the Super Six tournament on Saturday night in Atlantic City. Tarver fought Johnson twice, going 1-1 with the 42-year-old veteran. Tarver believes Froch has the much better ability and the inner determination to win. He doesn't pick Froch to beat Andre Ward in the final bout of the Super Six, but he does give him a very good chance of getting the upset.
"Froch is a slick, crafty, deceptive boxer but he has all the tools," said Tarver to the Nottingham Post. "He can box a little bit more than Glen Johnson and he can handle the pressure. He was first to show us how to beat up [Arthur] Abraham. Clearly he can box, he's got style and heart and he's determined. In America we're starting to see all of Froch's ability now. I'm not picking him against Andre Ward in the final but if anyone can beat Ward, it's Froch."
