Tickets for the hotly-anticipated Super Six World Boxing Classic showdown between King Arthur Abraham and Carl “The Cobra” Froch, who will battle it out at the famous Chapiteau de Fontvieille in Monaco on October 2, are on sale. They can be purchased at www.ticketcorner.ch. “It is all or nothing now,” King Arthur said. “The stakes have never been higher. Carl Froch is a great fighter and I have a lot of respect for him. But I will be fighting for my life and I will leave the ring as the winner.”
Abraham, who comes off the first loss of his career, will be eager to return to winning ways. After a spectacular KO victory sent Jermain Taylor into retirement last October and made King Arthur the early favourite to win the tournament, he suffered a controversial DQ loss against Andre Dirrell in Detroit. Froch defended his WBC Super-Middleweight Title against Dirrell in his first tournament fight in October before losing a dramatic 12-rounder to Danish superstar Mikkel Kessler, also tasting defeat for the first time of his career. “Abraham-Froch at a glamorous place like Monaco will be as good as it gets,” said Kalle Sauerland. “There will be two hungry warriors with incredible punching power going at each other from the first bell, looking to restore their pride after tough losses. We could not have asked for a more explosive meeting. Arthur will destroy the Cobra!”
Froch is convinced he will defeat King Arthur. “I am going to let my fists do the talking but there will be only one winner on the night, there is no way that Abraham is going to beat me,” he said. Added promoter Mick Hennessy: “This fight is the real deal, by far the very best fight out there. You have two of the Worlds fiercest warriors pitted against each other in a fantastic location. I know Carl is going to do the business in this fight and make his country proud.”
