Froch and Ward make the weight


By @livefight

The hugely anticipated showdown between Andre Ward and Carl Froch became real earlier, when both men stepped onto the stage at Caesars in Atlantic City to make weight ahead of their Super Six final at the Boardwalk Hall & Casino.

Froch, whom looked ripped and ready at 167.5lb stepped onto the scales first - quickly followed by Andre Ward whom came in exactly on the super middleweight limit of 168lb.

Froch's trainer Robert McCracken requested Ward step on the scales again when he noticed the Oakland Olympian was still sporting a pair of large white socks. Ward obliged and his weight remained the same.

The ring walk for their showdown will be at 2.30am tomorrow night on Sky Sports HD.
