Super Six Final: Andre Ward-Carl Froch Looking At Atlantic City

Andre Ward and Carl Froch will square off on October 29 in the Super Six World Boxing Classic Final, but the question remains as to where that fight will take place. Las Vegas and New York City both popped up as options, but now Atlantic City is entering the discussion. The discussion is apparently down to Boardwalk Hall in AC and an undisclosed location in Las Vegas. Neither fighter would agree to fight in the other's hometown so we now see discussions surrounding traditional boxing sites.

The fight is just under four months away and Ward remains a heavy betting favorite. He comes in below even money coming in as low as 1/3 and as high as 1/2. Froch is ranging between 6/4 and 2/1. Ward has turned this tournament into his own personal playground, dominating Mikkel Kessler, Allan Green and Arthur Abraham on points. Froch got an ugly points win over Andre Dirrell, lost a tough fight to Kessler, dominated Abraham, and won a clear decision victory over Glen Johnson. Froch will have a tough time with the skills of Ward, who has emerged as the big name in the Super Six.
