Khan Gives His Take on a Ward vs. Froch Rematch

If he beats Edwin Rodriguez on Saturday night, a possible match-up for the 29-year-old Andre Ward would be a super middleweight unification rematch with Carl Froch.

Ward convincingly beat the man from Nottingham when they met in December 2011 but his recent triumphs over Lucian Bute and Mikkel Kessler, plus the bad blood between the pair, has led to calls for them to share the ring again.

Amir Khan, who trains under the same coach as Ward, discussed the fight.

"If Ward and Froch fought again it would be a huge fight, particularly in Britain. They've both excelled in the super middleweight division and are the two leading names there now," said Khan.

"They're both world champions, so it's a fight which definitely makes sense and one boxing fans want to see. I believe the fight would follow the same course as the first one. The thing is with Ward he's very clever and smart, and can fight inside just as well as he does outside.

"Carl is an all-action sort of fighter and I think that plays into Ward's hands because he can use his boldness against him. Ward would be more eager to try and get the stoppage in a rematch, because of some of the things which were said after the first fight, but there's no doubt it would be a really exciting match up and occasion.

"The onus would be on Carl to take Ward into the trenches and force him to fight his kind of fight but that wouldn't be easy to do because Ward is very disciplined and makes adjustments."
