Ward's Trainer: Froch Would Be a Fool To Fight Andre

CARL FROCH is on another revenge mission following his bruising super-middleweight unification victory over Mikkel Kessler.

He wants a megabucks clash with Andre Ward, the second best pound-for-point fighter on the planet.

Froch won a thrilling bout with Kessler on points at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday night to avenge a defeat at the hands of the Dane three years ago.

Froch added the WBA world title to the IBF belt he already held, and he immediately set his sights on only other fighter to have beaten him.

But Ward’s trainer Virgil Hunter, who also trains Amir Khan, said: “Carl would be a fool to fight Andre.

“Andre would beat him. In fact, he would beat both Carl and Mikkel on the same night. Andre would knock out both of them.

“But, if they want to fight us, we would be happy to oblige. It remains to be seen, however, because nobody has made us an offer.”

Froch lost to Ward in Atlantic City in December 2011 and the Yank has a perfect record of straight 26 straight wins, including 14 knockouts.

Only Floyd Mayweather is ahead of him in the world pound-for-pound rankings but Froch is confident he can beat him.

He said: “He’s a fantastic fighter in the sense that he knows how to win and it’s true that he would be difficult to beat.

“But if we get the game-plan right and get him over to the UK, then what an unbelievable win that would be.

“If I could avenge the Andre Ward loss, can you imagine that? The only two people to beat me are Mikkel and Andre Ward.

“To beat those two would be unbelievable, something dreams are made of – and it’s a dream that I want to turn into reality.”

Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn believes that his team will be in pole position when any negotiations begin with the Ward camp.

He said: “Carl has two world titles and if Andre Ward wants to fight, it’s got to be how we like it. It will be on our terms.”

Froch is trying to mislead us fans again

Froch is running his motor mouth again, he knows he can't beat Ward, he is just trying to hype up the fight saying he is going to do this, going to do that, on Ward then come fight night he goes back into his shell hide's but decides to come back out the twelfth round and survives. $$$

Wrong, Froch is smart if he fight's Ward $$$
comment by mike gonzalez, on 05-27-2013
I remember the first time they fought, Froch talked smack all the time to hype up the fight, I purchased my tickets to see the fight live in Atlantic City thinking it was going to be exciting fight. Froch was there to survive not get hurt and collect a hefty paycheck, I was disappointed. Boring f...

[QUOTE=rzagza]Won't use same tactics?! Lmao. He's too slow!! And too open to hit. It's not about tactics. It's about genetics. He can't beat Ward. Never will. Move on. Take comfort in fact that no one will beat Ward.[/QUOTE] Finally someone gets it. You are completely correct. ...

It's really hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that people on here can justify Froch having any say in this matter. Why? The only money fight? He lost to Ward already, badly. Even if Ward fights him again and wins you clowns will still hate. There is too many fans of characters and not ...

I like Andre Ward, I think p4p he is an amazing fighter and soon to be the best fighter in the world. But I don't get why his manager and him are so reluctant to fight Froch in England? That is where the money is. As much as it hurts him, he's still the B side of the equation. Froch sells mor...
