Ward’s Talent No Longer Debatable, Froch’s Mettle Malleable

Andre Ward introduced at Boardwalk Hall December 17 2011

Last night super six finalist Andre Ward solidly defeated England’s Carl Froch.  Though Froch put forth an encouraging effort in the final round, Ward had fully dominated every previous round with no danger of being stopped. Even in the final desperate attempt to make progress in round 12 Froch’s punches were ineffective and labored.  Ward seemed to have more than adequate stamina, more than adequate defense and had no opportunity to prove his durability.  Ward emerges as the unexpected Super Six champion and settles some of the questions raised about his talent, his opposition and his future.
