Carl Froch: A Contest With DeGale Would Be Huge!

CARL FROCH is not ready to tumble from his position as the world’s best super-middleweight – whoever he meets next.

While his promoter Eddie Hearn is in negotiations with potential opponents, Froch is currently twisting and turning in BBC gymnastics reality show Tumble. Hearn has a number of options for Froch’s planned defence of his IBF and WBA world belts, possibly at London’s 02 Arena in February.

A clash with fellow Brit James DeGale looks to be a very realistic possibility after Mexican Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, the WBC champion, was deemed not to be a marketable challenger. But Froch isn’t worried who he fights.

In fact, he claims appearing in Tumble is far worse than going head-to-head in the ring with the best in the world.

He said: “It’s a lot of pressure being on a live television show.

“You know there are millions of people watching at home and there’s also a live studio audience, so it’s hard to keep your cool.

“When I’m in the boxing ring I know it’s something I am good at and I am not very good at gymnastics!”

Froch said of a potential clash with DeGale: “Any contest between me and him would be huge, for the British audience in particular.

“It would be a domestic fight between a legend of the sport and an Olympic champion.

“He wants to be the first British gold medallist to go on and win a world title and a fight between us would create plenty of interest.”

[QUOTE=F!x]Yep they do have a fairly substantial history, Degale called out Froch for years. If you remember during the Degale vs Groves build up, Froch was quoted several times saying he wanted Groves to beat Degale because he didnt like Degale.. And that was due to Degale calling him out year a...

[QUOTE=LacedUp]I think many guys could potentially beat Froch, doesn't mean it makes sense to make the fight. Degale brings nothing to Froch's resume. Literally nothing. I've begun to like Degale a lot more recently, but I just don't see why Froch would fight him. They don't have history, he's no...

i dont want to see the degale fight, at least the groves fight was entertaining but this is going to be a stinker

I like this fight Degale looked great in his last fight

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]Froch is a legend. He's fought and won at the highest level in his division without break for 6 years straight. No one else in boxing can match the run he's been on since 2008 or so. The only man to clearly beat him was Andre freaking Ward, arguably the best fighter in the sp...
