Arthur Abraham and Carl Froch continued their war of words prior to Saturday´s Super Six clash in Helsinki as the “Cobra” mocked his opponent during today´s public work-out in Helsinki.
While doing shadow boxing, he put his arms up and mimicked Abraham´s high-guard. “I expect him to fight like this,” Froch said. “I don´t think he
can do anything else. He will need his guard on Saturday. If I hit him clean and sweet early, it could be over quickly. If not, I will win on points,” he added with a smile: “I have been criticized for my defense, maybe I will use the high-guard myself.”
It was just the latest provocation from Team Froch. In an online story at www.thesun. co.uk, Froch´s girlfriend Rachael Cordingley had said: “Abraham is only a midget – Carl is going to dethrone the Midget King.”
Abraham could only smile when confronted with the latest attack. “Froch has insulted my promoter, my team and me. I will punish him for that on Saturday. It will be a great fight between two warriors. I cannot wait to get my hands on him and make him pay for all the rubbish he has said in the press.”
Abraham and Froch will collide for the vacant WBC Super-Middleweight Title at Helsinki´s famous Hartwall Areena on Saturday night. Tomorrow they come face-toface at the final press conference.
