Froch-Ward: Carl will have no answers for Andre’s super speed
By Scott Gilfoid: It’s impossible to beat a talented fighter like WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward if you don’t have blazing hand and foot speed along with excellent power in your armament.
Ward has already shown in the Super Six tournament that he humiliates slow and limited opponents that come to him with primitive caveman skills.
On October 29th, WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch is going to be one of those slow and limited fighters that tries to match his slow hand speed against Ward’s amazing skills and it’s not going to work for Froch. It’s going to be like turtle vs. the hare with Froch representing the turtle.
I expect things to start looking bleak for Froch after the 3rd round when he’s unable to land a glove on the talented Ward. Around that point I see Froch going to plan B and starting to try and rough Ward up with some choice fouls to try and even things up.
The fouling by Froch won’t help, because Ward will have already seen Froch’s fight against the talented Andre Dirrell and will have planned accordingly. Ward will stay on the move once Froch turns it rough and will use straight punches from the outside to control the fight. I think Froch will get angry if his rough stuff doesn’t change the course of the fight. I can see Froch upping the rough stuff a couple of notches in hopes of throwing Ward.
