// After more than two years of fights, injuries, delays and replacements, the Showtime Super Six Super Middleweight Tournament has - finally - reached its final bout. On Saturday night in Atlantic City, NJ, Andre Ward and Carl Froch will square off with both the WBA and WBC belts on the line. This is the biggest pro bout in the career of either. There is no rematch clause in the contract so the winner will hopefully meet IBF champ Lucian Bute for true supremacy in the super middleweight division. Who do you think will win the fight? Ward or Froch? Vote in our poll. Andre Ward: Fight-by-Fight Career Record Carl Froch: Fight-by-Fight Career Record
