Carl Froch wants rematch with Andre Ward, not interested in Groves or Stevenson

Scott Heavey

Carl Froch has his mind on the future, and not on the past. Well, not on one part of the past. But another part. For the future.

Carl Froch was on Sky Sports Ringside and talked about his future fights, with one clear target for the time being: Andre Ward.

Froch isn't looking for a rematch with George Groves, basically continuing to dismiss any idea of controversy, but he also doesn't write it off. Just not now, basically:

"I defended my title against a mandatory. I beat an unbeaten fighter, a hungry, ambitious fighter who came to try and win the fight - and winning with a technical knockout in the ninth round is a great result.

"Do I want to go over old ground? Not at the minute, no. I like to move forward in my career and the only old ground I like to go over again is for a defeat."

With that, Froch says he's looking to go over old ground with Ward, who beat Froch in 2011:

"It was nice to avenge the Mikkel Kessler defeat, it would be nice to avenge the Andre Ward defeat if that can possibly be made."

Ward (27-0, 14 KO) does need a money opponent, and at 168 pounds, Froch (32-2, 23 KO) is the best option. There was no doubt about the outcome of the first fight, but it's still a rematch that seems worth making. Neither fighter seems to have any interest in moving up to 175, and at 168, they're the two best in the world right now. On the 175 front, Froch also says that unless Adonis Stevenson wants to go back to 168, he's not interested in that fight, either.
