Andre Ward vs Carl Froch Super Six Final Promo (Video)

From the great Gorilla Productions:

Ward (24-0, 13 KO) and Froch (28-1, 20 KO) have been the tournament standouts, and given how everything wound up shaking out with the fighters pulling out and the injuries, this is the most fitting final. But I can't help but wonder where we'd be had Andre Dirrell and Mikkel Kessler stayed in the running. One thing Ward hasn't faced thus far is a slick fighter, and while it never seemed like Dirrell would fight him, the matchup was interesting on paper. And Kessler nicked a close one over Froch in stage two, and had trouble with Dirrell in stage one. Both of those things are easy to forget right now, but Froch's road has not been smooth, as Ward's generally has with easy, one-sided wins over Kessler, Allan Green and Arthur Abraham.

We're just over a month out from this fight and while I have enjoyed the Super Six and respect the tournament for what it is, this really feels more like just another big boxing fight with questionable action potential than some major event. I don't know if the Super Six managed to become a truly big deal, but it gave us good matchups (if a lack of great fights) and we're now getting a top fight between, at worst, two of the three top super middleweights out there.
