Carl Froch eyeing victory against Andre Ward

WBC Super Middleweight Champion Carl Froch meets WBA World Super Middleweight Champion Andre Ward in an exciting end to the Super Six World Boxing Classic. The fight is only eleven weeks away now and both fighters are deep into their training, hoping they can get in shape to win the fight.

Froch, thirty four, is the underdog but he is feeling confident. He told Sky Sports News:

I’m coming into the gym now at 175lb, which is half a stone over my fight weight, so I’m in a really good position. The perfect fight for me is to outbox my opponent and catch up with him late on in the fight, really put the pressure on and get the stoppage to excite the fans.

This is a statement most would agree with. There is not much chance for Froch to lead the fight on points against a technically better Ward. He needs to be in top condition, take it to the late rounds and then use his steel power punches against a tiring Ward. That is how he will win the fight.

Currently, Boxrec has Froch as the #2 pound-for-pound fighter in Britain and #12 in the world. This fight is by no means a mismatch and Froch will be hoping to come out of it as the WBC and WBA champ. Ward, however, is rated more highly. He is rated at #10 in the world according to Boxrec and The Ring has him as #9 in the world. He is younger, fitter and has won his last four fights by decision. Add his thirteen knockouts into the mix, and you have a fighter who can adapt his game to whoever he comes up against.

If Froch Beats Ward, What Next?

If Froch wins on October 29th, you can expect a media explosion in Britain. Despite being ranked as the #2 British boxer, Froch still doesn't enjoy anywhere near the popularity of WBA and IBF Light Welterweight Champion Amir Khan.

Twenty four year old Khan's rise to stardom started with his performance in the 2004 Athens Olympics, when he performed well in a time when Britain needed a sporting hero to get behind. He then turned pro in 2005, building up both popularity and an eighteen match winning run. In his latest fight against Zab Judah, he topped the bill at Mandalay Bay and millions tuned in on pay-per-view to watch him win by knockout in the fifth round.

Froch (28-1 20KOs) has been slugging it out since 2002 and had already picked up fifteen wins and a BBBofC English Super Middleweight title before Khan even turned pro. He is an excellent boxer who deserves more of our attention, and if he gives us a show against Andre Ward it won't be long before Carl Froch enjoys star status in Britain.
