I'm a huge fan of Froch but Ward takes this clearly.

But at the same time,I have to believe that McCracken has had Froch working on improving his inside game,just in case.He must have,surely?
Only thing is,Froch tends to abandon the gameplan and his ears become immune to any instruction Rob gives at times.
I hope this isn't one of those nights.

I think ward is gonna go big to the body of froch. Remember froch was badly hurt to the body against Kessler and went back to his corner in that fight complaining that Kessler hurt him to the body.

Also, wards trainer mentioned, he may have a good chin, but they is more than one way to get the stoppage and other areas they could target. Either he was referring to a body attack or maybe cuts. I think it's the former as they must've seen froch has been hurt to the body.

Ward has better short punches and is better technically. I think ward will do everything in this fight. Fight inside, fight out, have good movement - although I still see iy being a close fight due to froch showing grit to land his punches.

Ward of course... he's one of the few boxers I've ever seen that can completely tangle up his opponent inside and still have his right arm free to hit with.

Has to be Ward. Tighter, shorter, more accurate, and turns his punches over better.

This fight could turn out ugly and be similar to the Ward vs Bika fight.

Initially i thought ward will fight him on the outside and box but looking at more tapes of ward's old fights, I think ward will try to smother froch.

In my opinion if Froch goes aggressive he'l take a close decision, but I think he is going to try to jab with ward and give away too many of the early rounds.

Who has the Advantage on the Inside, Froch or Ward?

Do you think it will be an Inside Fight?
ermmm, who HASNT Ward manhandled in the inside???? All of a sudden Froch is some special inside fighter compared to Ward's previous opponents?

Froch may be physically strong, but Andre Ward is not a puppy. He's a very big athlete, just look at the weigh in of Ward vs. Kessler. Ward is a huge guy.

Technique>Strenght on the inside. Although you're right, Froch is a strong guy and you never know, but I think Wards physical strength is comparable at the very least.
and anyone who can manhandle Edison Miranda in the inside.... can pretty much manhandle everyone else in the division... including Froch.
