Nottingham's Carl Froch says that the recent internet stories that Atlantic City would be playing host to his WBC showdown with Glen Johnson we're "not 100% accurate" and that to wait before making any plans to head over there to his UK fans.

"Yeah I heard the news about Atlantic City, but nothing is set in stone yet." Said Froch.

"Contrary to reports, the wheels are still turning and an official announcement is due shortly. Until then, hang fire and see what develops. "

Rumours have circulated that Nottingham may still come into play for this fight, with venues in Canada also keen to host the semi-final of the Super Six.

"The contract stipulates America for the semi's, which is fine by me. But it would certainly generate 10,000 fans at the Nottingham Arena which naturally, would make for a better atmosphere and overall broadcast." Said Froch.

"But wherever it is, me and Glen will be putting on a fierce fight for the fans."

June 4th seems to be the revised date according to Showtime sources, after it was originally pencilled in for May 23rd.

British Television rights are still be organised, with many British boxing fans demanding Sky's Adam Smith takes ownership of putting Britian's most exciting, but unheralded fighter on the British broadcasting map.
