Froch Shot Down in Attempt To Grab Tickets To Joshua-Klitschko

By Zoe Drewett, courtesy of The Daily Star

CARL Froch’s fight against George Groves at Wembley was watched by 80,000 fans – not that he’s keen to mention it or anything.

The former super-middleweight king is well-known for reminding people – including Floyd Mayweather – exactly how many people watched his seventh-round KO win over Groves almost three years ago.

But it appears Froch is about to be overshadowed in a massive way by the heavyweight showdown between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko.

And he got a harsh reminder that his record-breaking attendance will be beaten when he turned up to the Wembley ticket kiosk to try and bag a seat.

After being told the tickets are sold out, an incredulous Froch repeats: “Sold out are they? 80,000 sold?”

The ticket seller says: “No, 90,000.”

Stuttering, Froch says: “90,000? Is that the correct figure you’ve got there then? And you’ve sold – none available?”

He leaves downhearted but clearly is not over the devastating news that his record has been upstaged – and returns seconds later.

“Did you know that I boxed here – 80,000, George Groves?” he says.

The brag gets a downhearted Froch absolutely nowhere.

Olympic champion Joshua, 27, has knocked out all 18 of his professional opponents to date.

But veteran Klitschko, who has lost just four of 68 bouts, believes the Londoner’s brawn won’t be enough for his brain when they clash later this month.

The Ukrainian said: "AJ has a lot of energy, he's young, he wants to show it. He has these big muscles that give him confidence.

"He wants to demolish people right in front of him. Those muscles give him a lot of confidence.

"But did you hear about boxing? It's a sweet science."

Former champ Froch will be part of the Sky Sports Box Office team for the showdown between Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko live on April 29.

How do people think this is real? Good on Froch for doing it but seriously, its scary what people believe... fake news and all that.
