CARL FROCH'S preparations for his world title defence have been interrupted by a dawn raid.

Froch bids to hold on to his IBF world super-middleweight title against American Yusaf Mack at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham tonight.

But his big fight build-up was disturbed one morning by drug testers banging on the door of his Nottingham home.

Such unexpected visits are the price that athletes have to pay as officials try to weed out drug cheats. Froch said: I was just about to go on an early run when there was a loud bang on my front door. Im thinking, You have just woken up my little boy, then my partner Rachael starts screaming about it. Shes not happy about it.

The test before that was at eight in the evening and I missed Coronation Street! It can be inconvenient but you have to say it is a good system.

The testers get a comprehensive note of your movements. They knew when Id be training in Sheffield, what time Id be back at home in Nottingham. Even the times of my runs had to be passed to them, but they can still turn up when they like and that can obviously disrupt your training plans.

I run between seven and nine in the morning and they knew that but they came 10 minutes before I was due to be out of the door.

You dont know what they are thinking. Maybe they were thinking I was taking a load of gear before I go running.

Froch accepts regular testing is necessary to beat cheats and said: It is good to keep drugs out of the sport. I would never object to any test, anywhere, anytime, because I know what passes my lips.

The 35-year-old is firm favourite to claim the 30th win of a career in which he has lost just two bouts.

Mack (31-4-2) is a level below the standard of Frochs more recent opponents such as Glen Johnson, Andre Ward and Lucian Bute.

But the 32-year-old underdog is promising a shock.

He said: I havent come here to lie down. This is the biggest fight of my life and Im ready to give Carl the fight of his life.

I know all of the people in the arena will be against me but the fire that will come from his fans will only fuel my fire even more.
