WBC super-middleweight champion Carl Froch held an open workout session yesterday to show of his form ahead of his Super Six semi-final clash with Glen Johnson this weekend.
Froch worked out for 30 or so minutes at the Mendez Boxing Gym in New York City and told the gathered press that he would make Johnson pay for taking him away from his new born son.
