NEW YORK(AP) Former super middleweight champion Carl Froch will fight Arthur Abraham in Monaco as part of the third group stage of the Super Six World Boxing Classic.
The fight will take place Oct. 2 at the Chapiteau de l'Espace Fontvieille in the principality on the Mediterranean Sea. Froch had wanted the fight in his native England, Abraham wanted the fight in Germany, and officials also discussed holding the fight in Montreal.
Monaco is considered a neutral location for the important matchup.
Abraham has three points and is in second place in the modified round-robin tournament, which will be pared from six fighters to four after the third stage. Froch is tied with two other fighters for third with two points.
