Keith Idec reports that the October 29 Super Six World Boxing Classic final will have a home soon, and Atlantic City is in the running.

Ward (24-0, 13 KO) has largely cruised through the tournament thus far, dominating in points wins over Mikkel Kessler and Allan Green in the round robin stage, and then Arthur Abraham in the semifinals. He also fought and defeated Sakio Bika in his toughest bout, a non-title affair last November.

Froch (28-1, 20 KO) has had a rockier run, but along with Ward has been the clear standout. Froch won a debated and ugly decision in the UK against Andre Dirrell, then lost a great fight to Kessler in Denmark, and then shut down Abraham in Finland to end the round robin stage. Froch's semifinal win was a hard-fought but clear victory over Glen Johnson.

Ward is on paper the obvious favorite, and many feel he'll just be a bit too slick for Froch. But "The Cobra" has had a habit of outperforming expectations over his career, even before the Super Six. Both are resourceful, smart fighters who aren't afraid to get dirty if the fight calls for it, and right now I'm expecting this to be a real battle of wits. It might not be the most action-packed fight, but I think it might be pretty nasty. It's the biggest fight of either man's career. Who ya got right now? Ward or Froch? WhO R u PiCkInG!?!??
