Despite boxing fans unanimously seeing Froch having lost that fight, Froch still thinks he did enough to get the win. I’m now wondering if we’ll see the same thing from Froch after he faces WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward on December 17th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
