The Sun Online Pat Sheenan15th July, 2009

The Manchester United legend was in Copenhagen on Tuesday to meet WBC super-middleweight champion Carl Froch, who is one of the key figures in the groundbreaking new tournament.

Froch, 32, is competing with WBA king Mikkel Kessler, former middleweight champ Arthur Abraham and Americans Jermain Taylor, Andre Ward and Andre Dirrell.

Dane Schmeichel, who won the Champions League with United, in 1999 said: "This concept will be great.

"It really will decide who is the best super-middleweight in the world.

"It is like the Champions League in football where the best teams compete.

"Now the best boxers in the super-middleweight division have signed up to fight each other.

"Of course I favour my countryman Kessler to be the last man standing but I think Froch might have something to say about that."

Froch added: "Forget what Schmeichel is saying about Kessler, I will be the winner.

"I am world champion already so now I have set my sights on the Super Six title.

"I will prove my class in every single fight against world-class opponents."
