Ward wins Super Six final showdownATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey - Unbeaten Andre Ward captured the Super Six World Boxing Classic tournament Saturday with a unanimous decision over Britain’s Carl Froch at the Boardwalk Hall arena.
The 27-year-old American dominated the 12-round super middleweight fight from the outset, and his victory caps a marathon two-year, round-robin tournament designed to find the top 168-pound boxer.
With the victory, Ward retained his WBA title and won the WBC super middleweight belt as he won on all three judges’ scorecards, 118-110, 115-113 and 115-113.
“One of the strongest assets I have is my mind. I kept my composure, I kept things under control. And we pulled it off,” said Ward (25-0, 13 KOs) said.
Froch, 34, has never backed away from a challenge, and he came to fight Saturday, but Ward proved to be too smart and too fast for the English boxer.
