CARL FROCH is enjoying life as a ‘homeboy’ after his years spent as a boxing gypsy.

IBF super-middleweight champion Froch – the self-styled ‘Cobra’ – has established himself as one of boxing’s macho men, with three bouts in the United States, Denmark and Finland in the Super Six.

Although he lost in the final against Andre Ward last year, he returned for a Nottingham homecoming in May and stunned Lucian Bute to win his third world title.

Froch, 35, hammered the Canadian in five rounds.

And he returns to the Capital FM Arena when he defends his IBF crown on November 17.

American Yusaf Mack was lined up but that clash fell through and a new opponent will be named on Tuesday.

Bute faced a cauldron of noise against Froch and his next opponent is set for a similar welcome.

“The atmosphere against Bute at the Arena is by far the best that I’ve ever boxed in,” said Froch. “I said after the fight that had I lost that I would’ve quit and I meant it – I couldn’t have let those fans down after the way they roared me to the ring.

“I knew just what I had to do on the night.

“Robert McCracken, my trainer, devised a perfect plan to defeat Lucian.

“But there’s no doubt that the crowd lifted me.”

[QUOTE=The Weebler II]Bika is, Pavlik isn't. If the Pavlik fight could be made then it would be. I think Froch will bypass Bika and take an easier opponent. IMO Hearn is looking at the long game of Bute II and Kessler II.[/QUOTE] So why is it alright for him to do that, when other fighters...

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza]Froch-Groves is not going to happen so people need to stop using it as an option. Seems there's literally no one from him to fight at the moment.[/QUOTE] Sakio Bika is available, so is Kelly Pavlik.
