CARL FROCH insists his legal battle with former promoter Mick Hennessy is not a distraction ahead of his world title clash against Glen Johnson on June 4.

Nottingham’s WBC super-middleweight champion defends his belt against Jamaican Johnson in the semi-final of the Super Six Series, with America’s WBA title-holder Andre Ward awaiting the winner in the final later this year.

Carl Froch, 33, is now guided by Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport after his recent split with long-term promoter Hennessy, who is suing the world champ for libel.

But Froch says his out-of-the-ring fight will not derail him from meeting Ward in a world title unification clash and insists he is not underestimating Johnson, 42, who he meets in Atlantic City.

He said: “The situation is with my lawyers and they are being paid to do a job. Part of that job is putting my mind at ease and giving me peace of mind, which I have got. For me it is totally on the back burner.

“Johnson has boxed the best and only lost to the best. He has a fantastic opportunity to do something late in his career.

“It is going to be a long, drawn-out, close 12-rounder.”
