Andre Ward- Carl Froch Headed to England, New York, Oakland

NEW YORK – WBA Super Middleweight Champion Andre Ward and WBC Super Middleweight Champion Carl Frochwill embark on a three-city international press tour to formally announce the most important fight of their careers:

Andre Ward the last American to win gold in the Olympics

The Super Six World Boxing Classic Final, a World Championship Unification, live on SHOWTIME®, Saturday, Oct. 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) from the historic Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.

Boxing star Carl Froch plans to beat Andre Ward

In anticipation of a fight that pits America’s last Olympic Gold Medalist in boxing against England’s most accomplished world champion, Ward and Froch will visit the three major cities on consecutive days—London, New York and Ward’s hometown of Oakland, Calif.—beginning next Monday, Aug. 22.

In addition to Ward and Froch, participants on the tour will include:

Ken Hershman, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports®

Dan Goossen, Ward’s Promoter, and one of the best in the business the head of Goossen Tutor Promotions

Eddie Hearn, Froch’s Promoter, Matchroom Sport

After a two-year, grueling journey, the winner of this high stakes matchup will claim both world championship belts, the vacant The Ring magazine championship and the inaugural Super Six World Boxing Classic Cup.

“This international press tour is a symbol of the magnitude of this Final,” said Hershman. “Generally, elaborate kickoff press tours are reserved for pay-per-view events. In the case of the Super Six World Boxing Classic Final, you have an unmatched accomplishment in the sport of boxing, two men who survived an unprecedented gauntlet and now stand one test away from claiming super middleweight supremacy. Unquestionably, The Final is deserving of this type of worldwide official announcement. I’m very proud to bring a fight of this level to our loyal SHOWTIME subscribers.”
