Boxing: Froch says quitting Super Six is not an option
Wednesday 28 April 2010
Walking away from the Super Six tournament is not a possibility for Carl Froch despite his disappointment over his loss on Saturday night to Mikkel Kessler.
The Nottingham boxer now looks likely to continue in the competition despite his comments after losing the WBC super-middleweight title in Denmark.
He has also insisted, however, that he will not fight in Germany in his next scheduled fight against the German-Armenian boxer Arthur Abraham, citing problems with the promoters. "I won't be fighting in Germany, simple as that, but it has been pretty much agreed that we would fight in a neutral venue," Froch said. "The last thing I want to do is to prepare and train for a fight in Germany with the same promoter and have the same problems happening potentially... but I don't think quitting is an option."
Froch can reclaim his WBC title thanks to the Super Six and a win over Abraham would put him back in the frame.
With WBA super-middleweight champion Andre Ward also in the competition, three consecutive victories would in all probability see Froch emerge with two belts.
"As the Super Six rolls on and gets more interesting, a win against Abraham puts me in the semi-final and then there is the final," Froch said. "I can still be undisputed champion in my next three fights, let's not forget that. This loss is going to make me stronger, better and more determined."
