Carl Froch vs. Yusaf Mack

IBF Super Middleweight Championship
Nottingham, United Kingdom ● Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012
Live on Pay Per View - 3:00 PM/ET 12:00 PM/PT

OFFICIAL WEIGHTS
'True Brit: Froch vs. Mack'
Live Saturday on PPV & FIGHT NOW TV in U. S.

IBF Super Middleweight Championship (12)
CARL FROCH (29-2, 21 KOs), Champion, Nottingham, UK 167 ½ lbs.
vs.
YUSAF MACK (31-4-2, 17 KOs), Challenger, Philadelphia, PA, USA 168 lbs

Froch quotes from today's official weigh-in: "I've trained just as hard for this fight as I did for the Bute fight. The training, the physical side of it: the runs, the groundwork and the sparring, have been just as hard as last time. You've got to be in tip-top shape for every single fight, if I turned up 50-percent fit for Mack then I'm probably going to get beat. It's as simple as that. I can't just take my foot off the gas and think, 'Oh, I've got an easy fight.' There's no such thing as an easy fight, so I turn up fully prepared for whoever I'm fighting.

"This is a World title fight so he'll come and try to cause an upset. He can punch a bit, because he's a light heavyweight, so he's going to probably try to catch me out early on and maybe let a barrage of shots off early. So, I need to be cute, clever and box behind my jab and just find my feet for the first three or four rounds before I close the distance and close that fighting gap and start letting some artillery go.

"I've made the mistake in the past of not turning up 100-percent and I nearly came unstuck against Dale Westerman. It was the warm-up fight before I boxed Brian Magee, defending my British title, and it was a hard night's work. It was tough. It was nine rounds of me getting my head punched in until I closed the show in the ninth. But that was supposed to be an easy walk in the park for me but it was probably one of my hardest fights because I wasn't fully prepared. I took him lightly. I'm too professional to not take this guy seriously.

"I've sparred a lot with Tony Bellew - a World champion in waiting, in my opinion - done some hard, long runs and some hill-work which is very difficult and my groundwork has stepped up a level and I'm feeling it. It builds-up getting harder and harder, until fight week when I take my foot off the gas, recover and then explode tomorrow. I'm going to be ready."
