Froch Hopes Fight Delay Will Be To His Advantage

WBC super-middleweight champion Carl Froch hopes the delay in Facing Andre Ward in the final of the Super Six tournament will work in his favour.

The British boxer was originally scheduked to face WBA champ Andre Ward this weekend in Atlantic City, but the fight was postponed tand rescheduled for December 17 after Ward suffered a cut whilst sparring.

Froch is now hoping the postponement will give him the undivided attention of trainer Rob McCracken, who was unable to work with him for two weeks during October because of his commitment as performance director to the Great Britain’s amateur boxing team for the world amateur champs .

"These days, as soon as something like this happens, it’s all over Twitter or the internet straightaway," Froch told The Times. "You have to block that out and wait for something official. I sparred with Tony Bellew that day and did 12 rounds, and put it all in. It could work out to my advantage because now I get Rob for the whole camp."

The 34-year-old also said he is very much looking forward to Facing Ward in the final of the Super Six Tournment

"I’m looking forward to it," Froch said. "It’s the two best fighters in the competition. I’ve been looking forward to it for some time."
