Hopkins: I'm Rooting For Froch To Win, Want Him Next

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins tells Jeff Powell of Daily Mail that he wants Carl Froch (30-2, 22KOs) to defeat Mikkel Kessler in their unification rematch on May 25th - because Hopkins wants to fight him next. Hopkins has a mandatory defense of his title on July 13th against Karo Murat.

"Froch is top of my wish list. I have great respect for him as a fighter. He is very exciting and our styles would make for a great fight. I will happily go over to the UK to make it happen but of course Carl will have to beat Kessler first. I am rooting for him to do it and I think he will win this time," Hopkins said.

Hopkins would even face Froch before WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly.

"Cleverly is a possibility for later this year but Froch is my preference if we can get it made."

[QUOTE=Camp Beast;13336721]BHOP knows what he's doing. He's famous for schooling slower, flat-footed, slugger types. This fight would mirror the Cloud fight or better yet, Ward's dismantling of Froch.[/QUOTE] I am not even a huge Froch fan but come on he…
