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.
