Ward ready to fight Froch in the UK

American boxer Andre Ward has said that he is eager to take on Englishman Carl Froch once again and he is even willing to travel to the United Kingdom to make the match happen.

Both Froch and Ward have been order by the World Boxing Association to have a rematch - Froch is the WBA Super Middleweight division's regular champion while Ward holds the Super World title. However, Ward had previously said that he would never agree to Froch's wishes of having the match held in his hometown of Nottingham, in the famous City Ground of Nottingham Forest Football Club.

However, the American, who defeated the Cobra on points in 2011, told a news outlet that it was only Froch's request to fight in Nottingham that he rejected. He said that he was more than happy to travel to any part of the United Kingdom for the rematch and the fabled Wembley Stadium tops his wish list.

He said that the United Kingdom is one thing and Nottingham is something else entirely. He mentioned that Froch is saying that since he went to the United States, he also needs to come to Nottingham.

According to Ward, Atlantic City, the place where the Super Six tournament was held is thousands of miles from his home. He added that he lives on West Coast while Atlantic City is on the East Coast and he had to make a six hour fight in order to fight.

Ward went on to add that he is not willing to come to Nottingham and he does not think that he should have to. However, Wembley Stadium is another matter altogether, as well as the United Kingdom as a whole and added that he would love to come there if that meant that the fight would happen.
