Carl Froch insists that Andre Ward should fight him this side of the Atlantic after his unification victory over Mikkel Kessler last night.

Carl Froch has said that Andre Ward must come to England if he wants to challenge him for his IBF and WBA super-middleweight crowns.

Froch last night unified the titles by defeating Mikkel Kessler unanimously on points at the O2 Arena in London and a rematch with Ward, who beat him in Atlantic City in 2011 is now on the cards.

Ward recently said that the rematch doesn't have to happen on Froch's side of the Atlantic but the Nottingham fighter is convinced that it should.

"I don't know who he thinks he is," Froch told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek this morning. "I don't need to travel. I have the title."

Froch and Kessler now have a victory apiece against each other and a decider between the pair could also be on the cards in the future.
