The four fighters who'll compete on Showtime today at 9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast, made weight Friday. An interested observer at the proceedings was unbeaten WBA 168-pound champion Andre Ward, who will face the Froch-Johnson winner in the Final of the Super Six World Boxing Classic.
In Atlantic City, WBC super middleweight champion Carl "The Cobra'' Froch (left, in photos) tipped the scale at 167 1/2 pounds while former world titleholder Glen "The Road Warrior'' Johnson weighed 166 1/2 pounds.
Froch (27-1, 20 KOs) will defend against Johnson (51-14-2, 35 KOs) in an eagerly awaited Super Six World Boxing Classic Semifinal from Adrian Phillips Ballroom at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.
The Froch-Johnson 12-rounder will be preceded on the telecast by a scheduled 10-round bout from Denmark between ex-world champion Mikkel Kessler (43-2, 32 KOs) and world-ranked Mehdi Bouadla (23-3, 11 KOs) that will be shown on same-day delay.
