Carl Froch: I'm Certainly Not Moving Up, No Stevenson

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch has no interest in moving up to the light heavyweight division to face Adonis Stevenson or any other boxer at the weight. After Stevenson recently knocked out Froch's good friend, Tony Bellew, he called for a showdown with the Nottingham favorite. Froch, who beat Stevenson's countrymen Lucian Bute and Jean Pascal, says there is no possibility of the fight happening, unless Stevenson  moves down. Froch is still focused on trying to land a rematch with the man who dominated him in 2010, super middleweight king Andre Ward.

"Stevenson did very well [with Bellew]. Tony Bellew is a good friend of mine and a great fighter and I'm devastated about the defeat. The relevancy of calling me out, I think, is because at one time he was the mandatory at the IBF, at super middleweight, and then he stepped up to light heavyweight. He's proved to be very good at light heavyweight. Because I boxed Jean Pascal, and Bernard Hopkins boxed Jean Pascal, and I boxed Bute as well- and beat both of them, he was sort of calling us out for the fans. I think that's why he said that," Froch told Sky's Ringside.

"But I don't think he has any plans of coming down to super middleweight and I certainly have no plans of moving up to light heavyweight, but it certainly made for an interesting story for Quebec and Canada. I don't really see that fight. He's found his footing at light heavyweight and he's doing very well. It would be nice to avenge the Andre Ward defeat, if that can be made."
