Hometown: Nottingham, England
Record: 28-1-0 (20 KOs); Current WBC super middleweight champion
Bio: The UK has produced a number of all-time great fighters over the years like Lennox Lewis and Joe Calzaghe; Carl Froch will look to leave his stamp on the game with a victory over Andre Ward. Yeah, 34-year-old Froch is seven years Ward's senior but don't sleep on this powerful vet who has only surrendered one loss in nearly a decade's worth of professional bouts. The two-time super middleweight champ is known for his ability to take a punch and dole out brutal punishment as well. Word to Jermain Taylor. Ouch.
Fighting Words: "I strongly believe if there is a knockout in the fight, it will be me knocking out Ward. I don't feel that he has the punching power. Even if he did, I can't be stopped. I've got the granite chain, I'm a beast. Laugh if you will, but it's true. I can't be knocked out."
