Ward: I’ll KO both Froch and Kessler in ANY country in the world
By Scott Gilfoid: Well, it looks like IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch can stop talking about his dream of having WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward come over to the UK to fight him so that Froch can have his final piece in the puzzle. Ward said that’s not going to happen.
If Froch AND Kessler want to avenge their defeats by Ward then they’re going to have to come to the United States and fight him there. He’s not going to go to Denmark or the UK because he feels he doesn’t have to and that shouldn’t have due to him being considered the best fighter in the division.
Ward said to esnewsreporting.com “I’ve lost all respect for Mikkel Kessler and I’ve lost all respect for Carl Froch. Neither one of those guys want to fight [me]. They’re just using my name to keep their name up. If I fight either one of those guys, I don’t care which country it’s in, it’s not going to go the distance. I don’t have to go to Denmark to become a star; they have to come to the U.S if they want to become an all-time great.”
Don’t waste your breath, Andre. You’re too good for this. Those two aren’t going to fight you again, and they certainly aren’t going to come to the U.S to get a second taste of defeat by you. They both got spanked in the Super Six tournament and it’s painfully obvious that they won’t want to get whipped again. So, I see them continuing to name drop your name but without fighting you. I agree with you 100%. If Froch and Kessler want to be great, then they need to come to the good old USA and dare to be great by trying to beat you in the beautiful city of Oakland, California. I love that place. It’s a great city and the Oracle is a superb venue if they were willing to try and avenge their beat downs.
So there it is. Ward has drawn a line in the sand for Froch and Kessler. If they want to try and avenge their losses to him, then they’re going to have to come to the United States and fight him in his own backyard of Oakland. I do think Froch and Kessler would get knocked out if they were to accept the fight, but then again I don’t think they’ll ever accept the fight so it’s kind of a moot point.
