Carl Froch: 'I Don't Feel Sorry For Calzaghe, He's an Idiot'

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

CARL FROCH has branded Joe Calzaghe “an idiot” for his cocaine shame.

The WBC world super- middleweight champ has no sympathy for Calzaghe and says they will never fight now.

After a brilliant undefeated ­career, Welshman Calzaghe’s reputation was wrecked when he admitted to taking cocaine last month.

Calzaghe, who ignored ­offers from Froch to fight him, hung up his gloves last year after more than ten years as world champ.

After failing to lure Calzaghe into the ring, Froch entered the Super Six World Boxing Classic tournament that features boxing’s top six super-middleweights.

Nottingham’s unbeaten Froch defends his world title against former Calzaghe ­victim Mikkel Kessler in Herning, Denmark, on ­Saturday in the second round of the competition.

And Froch, 33, warmed up for his third defence against Kessler by ripping into ­Calzaghe, 37.

He said: “Calzaghe has just been stupid. I don’t feel sorry for people who are idiots.

“He was bragging and being lairy around the old cocaine ­situation and talking about smoking weed. I just thought, ‘what an idiot’.

“Talk about letting his guard down and revealing all that to people he doesn’t know.

“You’ve got to have a bit of street cred about you if you’re going to give it the big one, ­talking about cocaine and ­playing the big, clever man.

“I don’t feel sorry for him, I just think he’s an idiot.

“He’s got no business in the professional boxing ring now and he looks about 14 stone.

“You can’t have that time off, take drugs and then expect to come back and compete.

“Even if he did want to drag his fat old self out of the ­armchair he’s got to get in line. I’ve got ­another four fights first, so it would be the end of 2011.”

Froch is unsure whether Dane Kessler, 31, has improved since his 2007 points loss to Calzaghe.

Kessler lost his WBA version of the world title on cuts to American Andre Ward in his last fight and Froch is expecting a backlash.

He said: “Kessler’s a wounded fox. But I’m in top shape. I feel so fit and strong, I will stop him.

“Whether he’s still at his best or not I don’t know but I’m going to be smacking him with heavy digs early on. Whichever way it goes, I win.”

This is the only reason I "like" Froch. His shit talking is always top notch so to speak. His fighting skills are shyt. I think Kessler might have just enough to beat him based on technical skills. Although as much…
