HE has kissed and made up with long-term domestic rival George Groves, but Carl Froch, one of Britain’s finest super-middleweights, still seems a way off patching things up with American Andre Ward, the only man to comprehensively beat him as a pro.

The pair would have been reunited last weekend – eight years after their 2011 fight – but Froch happened to be away sunning himself in Spain on the day Ward headed to Britain to cover Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Luke Campbell for US television.

Opportunity missed, Ward accused Froch of running scared, deliberately booking a holiday to coincide with his own trip to the UK, while Froch says Ward only agreed to visit England once he realised there would be no chance of their paths crossing.
