A vocal group of British fans invaded Friday’s official weigh-in at Circus Maximus at Caesars Atlantic City for the culmination of the Super Six World Boxing Classic.

Fans broke into chants and song in support of the man they travelled over two thousand miles for, Carl Froch. The WBC champ, who weighed in at 167 ½ pounds, will square off against WBA champ Andre Ward, 168 pounds, in the Tournament Final, live on Showtime on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 9 p.m. at tje Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.

What's at stake? both belts, the vacant The Ring magazine championship, the inaugural Super Six World Boxing Classic Cup and, most importantly, super middleweight supremacy.
