TOP NOTCH FROCH IS SUPER 9/4 SHOT

CARL FROCH is a 9/4 chance with William Hill to win his October showdown with unbeaten Andre Ward to win the Super Six tournament which got underway two years ago.

‘Ironically, when the tournament began, Carl was 11/4 second favourite with Ward a 13/2 outsider, and Hills offered 10/1 for the pair to meet in the final but Carl has been beaten en route while Ward has remained undefeated and is now odds on favourite at 1/3’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘We have seen some hefty five figure wagers staked on the tournament’s matches – and the biggest of all, £50,000, was on Froch to win the fight in which he was beaten by Mikkel Kessler. With the fight free to air on Sky we are expecting over £10million to be gambled on the outcome.’

TO WIN SUPER MIDDLEWEIGHT SUPER SIX SHOWDOWN….1/3 Ward; 9/4 Froch; 25/1 draw.

Gabriel Rosado Talks Philly Boxing in Preparation for Sept. 9 Fight With Keenan Collins

“It takes a lot of pride to be a Philly fighter,” said Rosado, who is returning to action less than two months since knocking out Ayi Bruce, of Ghana, in five rounds on July 15. “Philly fighters have skills, but at the same time they have a lot of heart, so when I step in the ring, I want to display my skills and at the same time entertain the crowd because they want to see a good fight.

“Bernard Hopkins, Meldrick Taylor and Ivan Robinson are well-known Philly fighters and, hopefully, one day I’ll be on that level. I want to be a star and a legend. Being a Philly fighter, I have a lot of pride and I want to give the fans exactly what they want.”

Rosado (17-5, 10 KOs), is riding the most impressive streak of his career, having won his last three fights, seven of his last nine, 11 of his last 14. Included in those streaks are victories over former IBF world junior middleweight champ Kassim Ouma, of Uganda, and top contender Saul Roman, of Mexico.

The Rosado-Collins championship bout and the semifinal, which features unbeaten welterweight prospect Ronald Cruz, of Bethlehem, PA, against Anges Adjaho, of Buffalo, NY, will be broadcast on TeleFutura’s Solo Boxeo Tecate at 11.30pm ET/PT (10.30pm CT).
