Froch: I Couldn't Get Anything Going, He Was Too Slippery

Andre Ward outclassed and outmuscled Nottingham's Carl Froch to win the Super Six super-middleweight tournament at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. American Ward was too quick and too slick for his British rival, landing at will with razor sharp jabs and hooks and even bullying Froch at times. Ward, who added Froch's WBC belt to the WBA belt he already owned, was the winner on all three judges' scorecards. The final scores were 118-110 and two cards of 115-113.

"I couldn't really get anything going, he was too slippery," said Froch. "I wanted to put my shots together but he moves low and slips and slides, he's very clever up close. It was very frustrating for me tonight. Fair play to him. I honestly feel I could beat Andre Ward. I'd have to work on some technical things, but there are other fights out there"

I agree with the fact that Froch was very classy in his post fight interview. Much respect to him. He has gained a ton of American fans during the Super Six.

Of course he is slippery. He is from the school of slick African American school of thought.
