Andre Ward: Froch and Kessler Misleading The Fans

Andre Ward has told Carl Froch's promoter Eddie Hearn to "pick up the phone" and make him an offer if he wants a rematch in 2013. Ward, the WBA and WBC super middleweight champion, plans to defend his titles again in February or March against Kelly Pavlik. Ward doubts that Froch, the IBF king, or WBA "regular" champ Mikkel Kessler are serious about fighting him.

"I would love it," Ward told Sky Sports about the possibility of facing Froch again. "I think Kessler and Froch are made for each other. But I don't think either one of them wants to fight me. I think they should stop misleading the fans and be honest.

"Neither Hearn or Sauerland (Kessler's promoters) have made us an offer to fight here in the States, or anywhere else in the world."

"Pick up the phone and make us an offer if you guys say you want this rematch. If you're that confident in Froch, pick up the phone."

Ward used to come off as a humble guy but the arrogance reared its head in this interview. He was very defensive and reminded me of Floyd when he was asked challenging questions. Its no like Adam Smith or Johnny…

[QUOTE=Red Power;12822053]I don't think Ward is concerned. [B]He earned over $1.5M[/B] for easy work vs. Dawson. He'll make similar money for even easier work vs. Pavlik in March. If the Kessler or Froch rematches ever happen (which they won't), he'll…

[QUOTE=TheUndertaker;12821924]If Ward wanted the fight so bad as he claims then he would grow a pair and stop being a vagina! Stop fighting at home so you can keep getting the home decision and the refs letting you fight the…
