After picking up an elbow injury that put the kybosh on any potential Las Vegas swansong fight with Julio Cesar Chavez Junior, Carl Froch spoke about perhaps quitting the sport.

Now whether the Nottingham fighter who is currently the IBF / WBA super-middleweight champion does retire or not remains to be seen but age is definitely not on his side.

But if you listen to Froch?s promoter, Eddie Hearn, the super-middleweight could be about to return in September, when his injury heals, against any of a whole raft of opponents with Hearn suggesting in the media,

?There is Bernard Hopkins, Gennady Golovkin (against Froch) is a fight that everybody would love to see, Mikkel Kessler potentially and, of course, James DeGale is the mandatory challenger for Carl Froch,?

?We will try to reschedule the (Julio Cesar Chavez Jr) fight for the summer now and other names have also come into the hat. I think Carl Froch will fight. He needs something that is going to make him get up at six o?clock in the morning.?


It?s all a bit puzzling really, if Froch has lost the desire to get up to do his training then perhaps it really is time for the aging fighter to call time on what has been a marvellous adventure.
