Boxing: Benn - Ward will edge out Froch
Friday 16 December 2011
Former super-middleweight world champion Nigel Benn has tipped Andre Ward to beat Carl Froch in the final of the Super Six tournament this weekend.
Nottingham WBC title-holder Froch faces American WBA champion Ward in Atlantic City, with Ward the favourite.
"I fancy Ward to win it," said Benn. "He's very slippery, a very good fighter. Don't get me wrong, Carl's a good fighter, a strong guy, and it will be a close fight, but Ward will edge it."
Former Olympic champion Ward has won all 24 of his professional fights, including a victory over Denmark's Mikkel Kessler, who in turn beat Froch.
