Carl Froch: A Contest With DeGale Would Be Huge!

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

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=LacedUp;14899317]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…

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

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;14898142]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…
