Carl Froch Continues To Troll Boxing Fans.

As of late, Carl Froch seems to be having great fun at the expense of hardcore boxing fans.

Some people have been suggesting in recent weeks that Floyd Mayweather’s claim that he will fight Andre Berto or Karim Mayfield in his final bout is an attempt to “troll” the boxing world. This may be the case, but even a ruse of that caliber wouldn’t make him the pound for pound king of trolling. That crown, undoubtedly, belongs to Carl Froch.

Froch’s strange and dry sense of humour has garnered much attention. It blends seamlessly with his naturally arrogant demeanor in a way that often makes one wonder if he is being serious or not. In a recent interview with Boxing News, the British super-middleweight addressed an issue that fans have been wondering about for months. What was he thinking when he asked this, now famous, question of Floyd Mayweather?

Skip to 2.15….

Froch told Boxing News “Mayweather’s not interested in what I ask him, so I thought I might as well have a little tongue-in-cheek dig here”. It was a joke that made for truly cringe worthy television, but true to form, Carl reveled in it. “I enjoyed it and I’m still enjoying it”, said the polarizing “Cobra”. Froch also added “When I get my MBE off the Queen, I might ask her, does she know that I knocked out George Groves in front of 80,000 fans at Wembley”.

You couldn’t put it past him.

Froch also seems to be using the uncertainty over his future to goad fans via a variety of media platforms.┬áPeople in boxing have been expecting Froch to make a decision about his career for some time now. Since his knockout victory over George Groves, at Wembley, in front of 80,000 people don’t forget, Froch has stated several times that he is happy with his legacy and that he will only return for a huge fight.

Originally, Froch told the media that only a fight worthy of headlining a sell-out show in Las Vegas would tempt him to box on. The Nottingham iron man has never fought in the boxing capital of the world. Having his name up in lights along the strip, he claimed would be the best way to bow out.

The likely opponent seemed to be Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Then in April, the Mexican suffered a devastating knockout defeat in a light heavyweight clash with Chicago based Pole, Andrzej Fonfara.

His dream fight laying in tatters, Froch began to change his tune. Previously dismissed bouts with Gennady Golovkin and, fellow Brit, James Degale were suddenly back on the table. Froch, however, continued to say that retirement was also a possiblity. Various self set deadlines came and went without any sign of a decision.

In recent weeks Froch’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has told Sky on more than one occasion that he expects his fighter to call it a day.┬áThis was a huge disappointment to fans. Both the Degale and Golovkin bouts were exciting prospects.

Desperate to see Golovkin in a real test, most hardcore fight fans were championing a bout against the Kazakh. Froch obviously knows this because, after a period of relative silence regarding the fight with “GGG”, he today addressed the subject on twitter, and in classic Froch style.

The tweet was a picture of a shirtless Froch, looking battle ready. The tagline read “Too big and too strong for GGG”.

The response was frenzied

…….Froch wouldn’t have it any other way.
