CARL FROCH will not risk his chance to become a boxing legend by under-estimating his next opponent.

Froch defends his IBF world super-middleweight title against Yusaf Mack in front of his hometown fans in Nottingham on November 17, insisting: I am treating him as a major threat.

He is a firm favourite to retain his title but Froch said: If I come unstuck in this one, everything I have achieved in the last few years will go to waste.

If it was an easy fight, I would be looking forward to training for it. But I am not. I am dreading it.

"That says how tough it could be.

The 32-year-old American, who has won 31 of his 36 pro fights, has promised to give Froch the toughest fight of his career.

Froch, 35, says he feels as fit as ever as he carries on fighting despite his age.

But he said: The only thing I feel I am losing are my legs. They arent as strong as they used to be and they are something you need at all times.

I dont find it as easy to get on my bike and move around the ring any more, or rely on my legs to evade shots.

But Froch is still as keen as ever and is planning at least four more top-class bouts before he finally retires. He loves training and said: Even when I am on holiday I get the urge to train.

I love to run and do something. I dont like the feeling of being lazy or out of shape. Its not a sensation I like.

I enjoy myself between fights but its not something preferable to training and competing for me.

I genuinely love what I do. I dont like going out and drinking. I pretty much stopped drinking the day after getting badly drunk when I was 21.

Now I am focused on my next fight. Getting old doesnt worry me because it is not something you can stop or slow down.

I am enjoying every minute of my boxing career and have fought all the top guys. As long as I feel like I do, I intend to carry on as long as I can.

It's hard not to like Froch.

Interesting to read him say that his legs are starting to go, or at least that's how I interpreted the comment. Not often you'll hear stuff like that from guys who seem to still be at the top of their game.

Mack will play the role of Hurricane Sandy!!!

You know what, a few years ago people used to rag Froch because he was the guy who always called out Cazaghe, because he was slow, had no defence and one dimensional. And now... he almost universally respected. A true warrior, fearless and genuine. He should be an example to every aspiring pro, i...
