Ward vs Froch on October 29, Las Vegas or New York

By Chris LaBate

According to The Sun, there is a tentative date of October 29th for the super middleweight unification between Andre Ward (24-0, 13KOs) and Carl Froch (28-1, 20KOs). The two champions are colliding in the final round of the Super Six Boxing Classic. Madison Square Garden in New York City has been mentioned as the possible venue to host the fight. Froch is pushing Showtime to stage the fight take place in Las Vegas.

"I'm pushing hard for this fight to take place in Las Vegas. It's the boxing capital of the world and to see my name in lights along the Strip would be awesome. All boxers dream of fighting there and I'm no exception. I'm hopeful a deal can be done," Froch said.

[QUOTE=PRINCE O' PROSE;10703542]What's funny is, those are all more meaningful reasons to 'like' him than most of the reasons listed for disliking him (what he says in interviews, his wife). I've never been a big fan of Cordingley on a…
