Despite what Carl Froch is stating, according to Tom Loeffler, the managing director of K2 Promotions, a bout between 'the Corbra' and Gennady Golovkin would be contested at the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds.
Froch has suddenly expressed an interest in facing IBF belt-holder James Degale and in this article is claiming that Golovkin is demanding that he move down in weight 'substantially' .
But according to Loeffler - "I've always maintained that out of respect to Carl and what he accomplished at 168 that Gennady would fight him at 168-pounds. There was never any discussions of catch-weights between Eddie Hearn and myself."
So have they turned the page on a potential fight with Froch?
"It's still to be seen if (Froch) fights at all or retires, then you can't blame him for not fighting Gennady but if he's fighting somebody else than he clearly is avoiding Gennady - especially at 168-pounds," said Loeffler, who in the past has made it clear that they are more than willing to face Froch in England.
