Sakio Bika has closed out the year by calling out Carl Froch, saying the two should get in on in an IBF-WBA-WBC unification fight in Las Vegas next year. Thus far, Froch has expressed no interest in fighting Bika, but he should, and here are five reasons why. 1. Andre Ward Rematch Ain't Likely Nor Smart. Topping the Cobra's list of preferred opponents is divisional top dog Andre Ward, but it's hard to see why. Sure, Froch would like to avenge his loss to Ward, as any gladiator would, but a repeat of Ward's lopsided points victory is far more likely than Froch scoring revenge should that come to pass. For his part, Ward shows little interest in whomping Froch again. Finally, while Ward vs. Froch II is probably Froch's most lucrative fight option, that is only by a matter of degree, and the extra money just isn't worth a second bad defeat. 2. Gennady Golovkin Doesn't Want Froch. Number two on Froch's list of preferred opponents is Gennady Golovkin, but that doesn't mean GGG wants the Cobra.
