Hearn: Froch's Options Are Chavez, Kessler and DeGale

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom believes IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight champion Carl Froch will continue to fight. Froch reached the pinnacle of his career on Saturday night, when he knocked out George Groves before a record crowd of 80,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in London.

In the option of Hearn, there are three realistic options for Froch's next fight - Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Mikkel Kessler and James DeGale.

Froch is hungry to headline a major event in Las Vegas and Chavez Jr. would certainly be the perfect opponent to oppose him. Kessler decisioned Froch in 2010, but the Nottingham boxer got revenge last year with his own twelve round verdict. A trilogy bout would do big business in the UK or Denmark. And then there is DeGale, an Olympic gold medal winner and the mandatory to Froch's IBF title.

Hearn told Sky Sports News: "It's early days not even 48 hours after that epic night at Wembley. Carl will now take a few weeks off and he'll go and relax with his family and I'll be mapping out his future. (He has) three options I think as far as we're concerned and that's James DeGale, Mikkel Kessler and Julio Cesar Chavez."

"I don't think there are any guarantees that Carl Froch will fight again. If I was to have a bet on it I'd say he would but it's very difficult after such a huge night like that to find the right fight and right opportunity that will make him get out of bed at 5 o'clock in the morning and do those hill runs and tough rounds of sparring.

"So I'll look at those over the next few weeks and he can enjoy some time off and then potentially look at a return to the ring."

What happened to GGG? Kessler should not be an option, DeGeale is alright and Chavez is decent if he comes to the fight in shape.

[QUOTE=hitking;14617899]Basically because the same reasons you use to why Froch shouldn't fight or worry about fighting Ward can be used for Floyd not fighting or worrying about fighting anybody f.uck boy.[/QUOTE] Anybody like who? And "f.uck boy"? Really? That doesn't…

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;14617856]In what way is this relevant to Floyd Mayweather? You seem to have some kind of suppressed anger/inferiority complex.[/QUOTE] Basically because the same reasons you use to why Froch shouldn't fight or worry about fighting Ward can be…
