Carl Froch Gets A Big Mack For Next Fight on 11/17

By Terence Dooley

Carl "The Cobra" Froch will face Yusaf Mack on November 17 in the first defence of the IBF super middleweight title that Froch ripped from Lucian Bute via a fifth-round TKO in Nottingham on May 26.  

Froch, 35, will once again headline at his home city's FM Arena for the meeting with the 32-year-old challenger.

"The Bute win was one of the greatest nights of my life and I plan on doing something special against Mack," said Froch when announcing the contest on Sky Sports News, 29-2 (21).  "He's got nothing to lose." 

Mack has a crowd pleasing style and holds a 31-4-2 (17) record, the Philadelphia-based boxer has lost to Alejandro Berrio, Librado Andrade, Glen Johnson and Tavoris Cloud, although the last two defeats were up at 175lbs, and has a dangerous, free-swinging style that could things tough for Froch should the champion elect to stand and trade.  

Froch, though, has mixed brawling with boxing in recent fights and is likely to ease past his American foe in order to set up either a return with Bute in March or a long-awaited rematch with Mikkel Kessler, who beat Froch by decision in April 2010.

[QUOTE=hougigo;12459234]After his recent run of opponents... this man deserves a stay busy fight[/QUOTE] i agree. I expect Froch to win but he deserves this type of fight after all the hard fights he has been in over the past couple…

It's a stay busy fight but atleast it's a half decent foe. Mack even in loses to Andrade, cloud, and Johnson gave them good fights and I expect him to do the same with froch.

Froch can fight whoever he wants right now. One of the only boxer out their that has had solid competition for years non stop. If a stay busy fight is long over due.
