Something for the Weekend - Carl Froch vs Andre Ward

Something for the Weekend - Carl Froch vs Andre Ward

If you're stuck for something to do at 3am on Sunday morning, you'll do worse than watching Carl Froch fight Andre Ward in the final of the Super Six. Given its rather poor promotion and relegation to obscure pay per view networks, you'd be forgiven if you don't know what the Super Six is. Let us explain.

Sponsored by US network Showtime, The Super Six is a tournament of the six best super middleweights in boxing. It started back in 2009 and despite going through its ups and downs - mystery injuries and retirements have led to people dropping out - it's been an entertaining journey with some great match-ups.

Most of the entertaining fights have involved the UK's Carl Froch, who was previously most known for attempting to goad Joe Calzaghe into a fight for years. That fight never happened but Froch ended up having a run of career defining bouts, which has led to this one with Andre Ward.

Ward is undefeated and still relatively untested, but he's the favourite due to his olympic pedigree. Froch has fought a higher level of competition but is believed to not be skilful enough to beat Ward. All in all, it makes for a must-see fight where the outcome isn't written in stone before the fight happens. Sky Sports 2, December 17th, 12am
