Froch Shakes Head at Khan For Twitter Drama, Blaming Joshua

By David Rivers, courtesy of The Daily Star

BRITISH boxing great Carl Froch MBE has said Amir Khan will be "laughed out of town" following the boxer's recent Twitter meltdown with his wife. 

The "Cobra" hung up his gloves in 2015 after brutally knocking out George Groves a year earlier in an epic Wembley Stadium rematch.

But now the 40-year-old has revealed his thoughts on feuds out of the ring – including Khan's recent spat with his wife, Faryal Makhdoom, that stole headlines last week.

Froch – who himself once had a war of words with Khan – believes he has gone too far.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, he said: "It's not good is it to be airing your dirty laundry on Twitter, making accusations with no substantiation – that's not good.

"That's all I'm saying, he's got no substantiation to what he's accused Anthony Joshua of. AJ's just blown it off and said this is nothing to do with me.

"Until he comes with some hard evidence, he's going to get laughed out of town, isn't he?"

Asked if he believes Khan's career is nearing its end, he said, "Yeah I do."

Froch has long been a role model for the sport, but he himself is no stranger to feuds out of the ring.

The former super middleweight champ endured a heated rivalry with George Groves before their first and second fight – when the duo sold 80,000 tickets.

He said rivalries are healthy for the sport but praised the civilised nature of Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko too after their mammoth heavyweight bout in April.

"I sometimes think it's unavoidable," he told us.

"Not everyone gets on and people are going to clash. With George Groves it was genuine and it's good for the game because it sold out Wembley.

"AJ and Klitschko was equally as good for the sport."

He added: "Conor McGregor (and) Mayweather now, it's all just trash talk isn't it. It's great, it's great who doesn't want to see that fight?".

The fact he can't get noticed without naming AJ in a tweet says it all. Made headlines around the world by being paranoid...

[QUOTE=iamboxing;17933077]"That's all I'm saying, he's got no substantiation to what he's accused Anthony Joshua of." Yes, he just threw in the AJ angle to get more followers on his twitter. It's a common ploy when you're on twitter and need…
