Andre Ward sends message to Carl Froch as he heads to UK for Loma vs Campbell
Ward has sent a cheeky message to get the attention of his ex-rival Froch this week.
The American former pound-for-pound king is coming over to the UK to be part of US broadcaster ESPN’s coverage of Vasyl Lomachenko vs Luke Campbell on Saturday night.
As he departed for the country on Wednesday, Ward joked that he is ‘looking’ for Froch after tensions flared between them earlier this year.
Back in January following the retirement of George Groves, Ward slammed Froch’s critical reaction, calling him ‘old and bitter.’
This sparked a fresh feud which may reignite this week.

Vasyl Lomachenko funny moments
Lomachenko usually comes across as quite a serious character in English-speaking interviews.
The Ukrainian sensation, widely regarded as the best fighter on the planet today, has a no-nonsense approach outside of the ring and carries a special distaste for trash talkers.
Loma admits that he feels he can’t fully express his personality in English, hence why he has not yet crossed over as a major star in boxing.
However, when he’s relaxing and speaking his native language, a different side to him comes out.
