Froch Injury Blow


Recommended Posts

Carl Froch is aiming to return to the ring in the summer after picking up an elbow injury in his return to training.

 

The Cobra's team are currently in talks with Mexico's Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr about a potential fight in Las Vegas, but has been forced to delay his return due to then injury.

 

 "I'm disappointed to have to let this opportunity go but at this stage in my career I have to make every fight count," Froch, who hasn't boxed since his Wembley Stadium clash with George Groves, said.

 

"I will get some treatment and then we will look to make this fight or another big fight in the early summer."

 

Promoter Eddie Hearn added: "We have been deep in negotiations for some time and we were almost ready to go.

 

"Carl has gone into fights before not 100 per cent fit and paid the price and he has made the right decision to hang fire. We will have a meeting early next week and plan out 2015. I'm confident we will see him back in the ring this summer."

I care, Froch is one of my favorite fighters the past few years. So he can't beat Ward, but he is a solid fighter, a no bs type of guy, I look forward to his return. I think he should have one or two more fights and bow out.

That's a fact....he will take at least 10-15,000 Brits to see him fight in Vegas....he sold over 80,0000 against Groves!! So not Bold in the least, on the contrary just someone that knows what he is talking about :wave

I think it is a straw man argument to say Froch doesn't sell well. I believe his last fight had one of the largest live audiences of all time, and sold out in hours, the man has star power and an entire country behind him. You can argue his skillset all you want, and to an extent I can agree, but the guy is entertaining and charismatic, and he does sell out venues.

 

Can he sell out the MGM grand? Perhaps, depending on the opponent, but I do know it won't flop.

I didn't say he doesn't. Rican said something in that direction, I just said nobody in Mexico will miss him. And do you really think THEY can?

all that is fair across the pond nobody here is lining up to see him in vegas. last one was there against a rival who had a good following as well , drunk ass soccer hooligans will fill any venue over there  :slobkilla

 

lets see him sell out MGM with hopkins  :rofl  at least JCC has fans , BHop cant do more then 5K fighting even here on east coast

 

let me state for the record i have been a supporter of Froch on this board , nothing against his skill set  nor his ring accomplishments, that he is a whiny cunt who over inflates his ego and his worth is what i am getting at. Where were the 10-15 K brits when he fought in AC? that fight was held in front of crickets  :nice
