Khan tells Froch he cannot rely on the judges: Only sure way for win is to KO Ward

18 Dec

Tommy Barber – London

Former super lightweight world champion Amir Khan, who once held the WBA and IBF titles but was recently stripped of both by adaptable DC boxer-puncher Lamont Peterson last weekend, used his own experience of fighting in the States when offering advice for British compatriot Carl Froch, who engages Andre Ward in the concluding chapter of the Super Six World Boxing Classic; a three-belt bout on December 17 at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

‘Knock Ward out,” that is the message given to Froch (28-1-0, 20ko) by Khan ahead of what is set to be one of the most significant fights in the history of the super middleweight division.

The 168lb weight class has been one that Britain has helped make great due to producing world class talents such as Nigel Benn with his brute force, the skillful maneuvering and boxing ability of Chris Eubanks and the unbeatable Joe Calzaghe, however, Froch can emulate the aforementioned trident by capturing the coveted cup later this evening.

In order to guarantee himself the victory, the trophy and three world championship titles (his own WBC belt, Ward’s WBA strap and the prestigious The Ring magazine title), he will have to knock the American out, according to Khan, who has implied that the three judges at ringside (one British, one American and one neutral) can not be relied upon to provide an accurate scoring; something he attributes his most recent defeat, to Peterson, to.

“Carl will have seen what happened with the referee and judges robbing me,” Khan is quoted by The Sun to have said.

“The only sure way for him to win is if he can take Ward out inside the distance. If it goes to points he had better hope he is so far out of sight they couldn’t possibly go for Ward.”
