Super Six Final: Andre Ward vs Carl Froch

underdog against Ring Magazine’s #9 Pound-For-Pound Fighter in the world, Andre Ward 24-0-0 (13 KO). The native of Nottingham is nothing if not confident in his abilities as a pugilistic & has made much of Ward’s supposed lack of punching power in the build up to the final chapter of the two year experiment that has been the Super Six.

The delay emanating from an injury to 2004 Olympic Gold medalist Ward curtailed a scheduled October 29 meeting of the WBA & WBC Super Middleweight champions. Froch remains an oddity of sorts among British champions in that unlike Bruno, Eubank, Hamed, Calzaghe, Hatton or, latterly, Amir Khan, his is a celebrity that has not ignited into hysteria – or anything approaching it.

Perhaps this is partially explained by the fact that he only took his professional bow aged 24 & in the intervening nine & a half years managed five fewer fights (29) than years on the planet (34). Though not able to draw on the volume of support his predecessors enjoyed; that support which is on offer is of course similarly vociferous & unrelentingly loyal – & highly localized in derivation from the Nottingham area of England.

Ward, too, is a champion whose abilities dwarf his star power within the sport & a mainstream sports entertainment industry that currently barely has his considerable ring talent on its radar. Should the two be able to throw up a highly compelling & fan friendly contest this evening, the Super Six’s most significant legacy could well be combining the two under-touted & under-appreciated talents into a total that is more than the sum of their previous individual commercial parts.
