Default Froch v Johnson - March 2010 in USA

According to The Sun:
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

I was hoping it would be in Nottingham but I wonder where in the US this fight will be held?

I hope they can confirm a date and venue very soon as it would be good to get some notice to book flights

I thought that as second seed he gets a home fight.

Be good if they put both semis on the same bill though.

It'll all come out this week I suppose.

Yeah, spot on. It would be great for us as we could see the fight at a decent hour too.

the 1st and 2nd place get home advantage. The Sun have got it wrong. The fight has no place in the US.

Froch vs Johnson would do 10k in Nottingham, could even take it to the MEN. How many tickets would it sell in the US?? and its not like Johnson is not prepared to travel.

it makes absolutely no sense for this fight to take place in america, but if it was written in the contracts then i suppose it will take a fair bit of negotiating - something that big mick isn't renowned for. from showtimes point of view, you can see why they would want to keep it in the states. i imagine that it will be a joint venue with the other semi?

Apparently it was in the contracts that both semis will be in the US. Pretty stupid that.

i hope abraham crushes ward, am really not a fan of ward after his dirty tactics with kessler and dirrell's just an embarassment what with his carl lewis impression against froch and his fine acting against arthur.

hopefully he sorts something out. He also has Watson vs O'Donnell which could be on the undercard.
