WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch is still sticking to his position of giving Arthur Abraham a puncher's chance against WBA champ Andre Ward. The fight has been announced for May 14 at the Home Depot Center in California. Abraham has lost two out of his last three fights. Froch, who dominated Abraham in their Super Six bout, refuses to write him off.
"Style's make fights. I'm sure plenty have written Abraham off following his two defeats in his last three fights. But Arthur has bricks in his gloves, he only has to land that money shot once and it could turn the fight around. It will be interesting to see Ward against a common opponent. We both fought Kessler under significantly different circumstances, but this one will hopefully reveal more about our standings in the tournament." concluded Froch to livefight.com.
Froch is facing Glen Johnson on May 21. No venue has been set. The Froch-Johnson and Ward-Abraham winners will face each other in the final bout of the Super Six tournament.
