The SHOWTIME Super Six World Boxing Classic Final came to a dramatic conclusion on Saturday night at the historic Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City as unbeaten WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (25-0, 13 KOs) outclassed WBC champion Carl Froch (28-2, 20 KOs) over twelve one-sided rounds. The Olympic gold medalist Ward was faster, busier, landed cleaner, harder punches and did not allow Froch to get anything going. By round seven Ward was seemingly hitting Froch at will. A desperate Froch came on late, but the result was never in doubt although Ward prevailed by surprisingly close scores of 115-113 on two cards with a more realistic 118-110 on the third card.
