“The infamously prolific Wiley will close one of his most prolific years yet with a Christmas song.
Titled ‘Cheer Up, It’s Christmas’, it’s about appreciating what you have at Christmas rather than envying what you don’t.

04. Froch: ‘I’m not scared of taking a hit’
“Carl Froch will be able to legitimately call himself the world’s No. 1 super middleweight should he emerge victorious Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., in the heady conclusion of Showtime’s Super Six super middleweight tournament (9 p.m. ET/PT).
Having previously dispatched Andre Dirrell, Arthur Abraham and Glen Johnson in Super Six battles, Froch, 34, will face fellow world champion and favored Andre Ward (24-0, 13 KOs) in the final. Froch (28-1, 20 KOs) recently set aside a few minutes to catch up with ESPN.com and warn anyone considering him an underdog to do so at their own peril.” (ESPN)
