I read somewhere that the boss of Sky Sports made a promise that Froch's next fight will be televised, after being impressed with his performance against Abe.

Ah, here we go http://www.cable.co.uk/news/sky-spor...hts-800266533/

This is a great question, I'm from the U.K and I can comfortably say that Froch is not that popular with casual fans he's not a star here. Khan and Haye are both bigger stars in the U.K and personally I think that's a shame.

For what ever reason the media have not really got behind him yet they will continually hype other sports personality's who have not achieved as much as Carl.

David Haye was a contender for sports personality of the year in 2010 yet all he did was beat an old John Ruiz and Audley Harrison to me its a total joke.

its about time people in the U.K gave Froch the recognition he has earned.

There was a long conversation about this in a thread recently.


Two Americans concluded that Carl Froch simply doesn't have the necessary wow-factors to be a domestic star in the UK.

Didnt Fat Mick say after the Pascal fight that Froch was to big a star for ITV, but then he could get Sky to show the Taylor fight so he had to go back to ITV. Then after that ITV pulled the plug and Froch was forced onto a channel no one has.

Didn't Mick Hennessy/Froch ask for too much money from ITV & Sky for the Taylor fight (i think) and they turned him down, leaving Prime Time showing it? Since then Sky and ITV have refused to deal with him.

Probably because of the way he acted to Calzaghe, Khan and some other British guys.

We don't like that over here, you got to support your own or it alienates you.

hes not as popular as calzaghe was cuz joe was well liked and froch was calling him out on a regular basis after he beat robin reid by ko, reid took calzaghe to a S.D,yeah it was a few years earlier but was still a great win for froch...i still think calzaghe knew froch was too strong for him.

You would think that people would want to watch to see him lose then.
