Super Six World final confirmed

Super middleweights Carl Froch and Andre Ward will go toe-to-toe in a mouth-watering Super Six World final in Atlantic City's historic Boardwalk Hall on October 29. WBC champion Froch has won 28 of 29 contests, 20 by knockout, while WBA holder Ward is unbeaten in 24 fights, with 13 victories by stoppage. Froch's only defeat came to Mikkel Kessler on a debatable points decision, however he secured his place in the Super Six final with a comprehensive victory over Glen Johnson. The 34-year-old from Nottingham said: "Not only is it for two world titles, but it's for the tournament trophy and The Ring belt is also on the line. "It makes this the biggest and the most prestigious fight to happen for as far back as I can remember.

Power

"My punching power is far superior to Ward's. This will prove to be the deciding factor." Former Olympic gold medallist Ward has impressed throughout the tournament so far, with wins over Kessler, Allan Green, Sakio Bika and Arthur Abraham. And the 27-year-old countered: "I don't think Froch gets the attention he deserves in his country so he tries to get it in the United States. He's certainly not the first to speak out against me and he won't be the last. "I think Froch likes to hear himself talk - except he doesn't know what he's talking about."
