As previously reported, promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport is still unsure as to who IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24KOs) will face in the fall. After drawing 80,000 fans for his eight round TKO over George Groves in May, Froch is looking for the biggest fight possible.

Hearn has reached out to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum to make a fight between Froch and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., but the Mexican boxer is having promotional issues with Top Rank.

The more likely option is unbeaten James DeGale (19-1, 13KOs), who is Froch's IBF mandatory. Froch has to face DeGale by February of next year. In the event it won't be DeGale, Hearn already set aside a tentative date of October 11th at the O2 Arena.

He told Sky Sports: One hundred percent. I think Carl Froch has had his time, hes been in some fantastic fights, earned a lot of money, but hes getting on hes 37, Im 28 Im in my prime. The next five years of my career are very important and its time for me to take over now, to get those titles.

On my side Ive got utmost respect for him. Hes a true warrior, the things hes achieved in boxing is unbelievable, but when we get in the ring the respect goes out of the window and we get in there and we fight. Ive said it for years, Im all wrong for Carl Froch and Im confident of beating him. Carl Froch is a bit of a throwback, hes a bit of a caveman. Hes tough, hes strong, hes got a good engine, thats his attributes. But his negatives are his hands are down low, he crosses his feet, hes slow, there is so much I can point out, its unbelievable.

One of the negatives is that even here in the UK not alot of people want this fight.

I often make stupid comments....

.....but when I do they are because I am emulating Degale and Geale. They are both dead men walking.
