But will he take it?

Whilst Carl Froch ponders over whom to get in the ring with, with names such as Mikkel Kessler, Julio Cesar Chavez Junior and Anthony Dirrell mentioned, the IBF mandatory challenger James DeGale?s camp are trying to force the issue.

Led by Ambrose Mendy, they?ve offered Froch a guaranteed purse of £4 million to take on their man but, so far, have been met with silence. They?ve even agreed to the 31st January fight night Carl has picked for his next fight.

Talking about the status of the negotiations, Ambrose has remarked,

?Will he fight James DeGale today for the £4m that we have guaranteed? No, he will not. I have got Eddie Hearn (Froch?s promoter) scared to the point that he won?t answer the phone,?

?We have guaranteed him £4m to fight James DeGale ? how on earth do you sneeze at that? You just don?t. He is saying he doesn?t know if it will do the numbers we have said. But I am telling everybody it?s a humongous fight.?

Will this one happen?

For some strange reason I doubt it, something just doesn?t feel right. It doesn?t grip me like either of the Froch v Groves fights, how about you?
