WBC super-middleweight champion Carl Froch has called his upcoming Super Six semi-final clash against Jamaican veteran Glen Johnson his ‘toughest fight’ to date.
Froch, who faces Johnson on June 4 in Atlantic City, is refusing to look ahead to the Super Six Final where WBA champion Andre Ward awaits until after his bout with Johnson.
Ward's speed and power proved too much for Abraham as he eased his way to a 12-round unanimous decision over the German and took his unbeaten record to 24-0.
Ward, who defends his WBA super-middleweight title, came in at 168lbs on the button while Abraham was a little lighter at 167lbs.
