Ward Suffers Cut, Froch Showdown To Be Postponed

Carl Froch's World Super Six showdown with Andre Ward has been postponed after the American boxer was injured in sparring.

WBC super middleweight champion Froch had been set for a unification showdown with Ward, holder of the WBA belt, in Atlantic City on October 29.

However the fight has been postponed after Ward was left needing stitches following a training accident.

Ward wrote on Twitter: "Bad News: I sustained a cut in sparring a few hours ago...flew to LA to see the Doc. I got 7 stitches. I will let you know the new date soon"

The unbeaten Ward (24-0) had beaten Arthur Abraham to secure his place in the final of the tournament, while Froch beat Glen Johnson.

The 34-year-old Froch, whose only defeat in 29 fights came against Mikkel Kessler, will now have to wait on a new date for the showdown.
