Default Carl Froch talks about Calzaghe

“I am starting to feel sorry for the Calzaghes,” began Froch.

“Every time they attempt to fend off one of my challenges to them, they leave themselves wide open.

“It is becoming a bit like shooting fish in a barrel.

“Firstly Joe’s dad attempted to price his boy out of the market by asking for £1 million to fight me.

“Now that hasn’t washed, Joe has come out saying that I am miles away from being good enough to fight him.

“Sorry to do this to you Joe; but let’s take a look at your last two opponents.

“We have the all conquering Mger Mkrtchian, ranked at a lofty 34 by the WBC.

“Then lets not forget the outstanding Kabary Salem, who isn’t even ranked by the organisation, yet stretched you 12 rounds.

“Whereas I am ranked 22nd and my next opponent Henry Porras is ranked 11th.

“Its more*like I'm too good. I think it is you Joe who have been fighting nobodies.”

“In my opinion its fighters like you, sitting in the comfort zone and only taking soft touches, that have led to Sky scaling down their boxing coverage.

Froch added: “I don’t think much of your next opponent Mario Veit either; he was bad enough the first time round.

“Where are you going to go after that? It seems you have already lost out on the Lacy fight.

“Like I said last time, all your team do is reel off a series of names: Roy Jones, Bernard Hopkins and Glencoffe Johnson have all been mentioned.

“Nothing ever happens.

“So come on and give the fans what they want to see, a good old world class domestic dust up.

“Me versus you would be an even better fight than Benn vs Eubank I.

“If you’re scared of losing your title, keep it. Lets just have a 12 round International contest.

“In this day and age its not always about the belts, it is more important to make the big fights.

“Nothing is standing in the way of this fight happening, so long as your promoter is reasonable and doesn’t look for options.

“You have an easy fight to get through.

“I have a much tougher proposition in Porras, but I am going to do a number on him.

“Lets do it: winner meets winner.

“This isn’t about the publicity, why would I want to get that off the back of you Joe – in my opinion all you get is bad publicity or a mention in the South Wales Argus.

“I genuinely want this fight.”

The Cobra added: “Joe, you say you would smash me. So why then don’t you stop talking rubbish and walk the walk?

“You say my hands are down, you’re right they are - that’s the way I fight. But you are wrong about my chin being in the air. Why don’t you come try and catch it?

“And at least I don’t slap and tickle.

“Once my combinations start landing on your kisser, you are getting KO’d.”

I like Froch he's a funny guy, can't see this fight happening though, too much for Calzaghe to lose and Froch doesn't bring anything to the table at this point, Joe looks to be fading though so the longer it takes to make the fight the better it is for Froch imo.

it's good to see a uk fighter be as ambitious as froch is, a lot of guys in the past like calzaghe have been stuck in the comfort zone for far too long

Why does froch want to fight calzaghe exactly? Froch is by far the better boxer, and calzaghes title is pretty meaningless. Froch is just starting to break into world level boxing, he dont need this fight, he needs to start fighting the better world level oppionents, not worrying about domestic reputations (which is clearly what this is about) and fading fighters like calzaghe

Calzaghe would ****in kill Froch, anyone with 1/100th of a brain knows that. Before the Lacy fight Froch called Calzaghe out every other day, but now he just sort of lightly suggests it as a possible future fight. I'd love to see Calzaghe knock the **** out of Carl's mouth.

For once i agree with Calzaghe.
Froch needs to prove himselv way more before he in any way deserves a shot at Calzaghe. And frankly he doesn't have what it takes to do so.
Froch is WAY too ****y for a 29 yo who has yet to achieve anything.

But in a way i'd like to see Calzaghe shut him up big time.
One of a very few fights where i'd be rooting for Joe.
