Will Froch Box On?

Although Carl Froch finally saw off the challenge of George Groves at Wembley Stadium, it appears that a defeat could well have seen the four time world champion throw in the towel and call it a day.

In fact even in victory it might still have been Froch’s last fight with the WBA and IBF champion remarking to the media,

“If I bowed out now I could say that was my finest hour, my finest right hand.'

'I'm 37 next month but I feel strong.'

'I could have three or four more fights - but if I decide after I've been on holiday I've had enough, don't be surprised.'

'The one thing I haven't done is to fight in Las Vegas. That would get me up to remain in this sport. I wouldn't say it is Vegas or bust, it is close to that.”

'Eddie Hearn does magical things. There are a couple of options but all I want to do at the minute is relax with my family and have a nice summer. I'm not making any decisions now.'


Will Froch box on?

It’s a hard decision to call. The Wembley Stadium bout, in front of 80,000 people is as probably as good as it gets.

There are some decent fights out there for the Nottingham fighter but is the desire there to live like a monk for three months when your exploits have set you up, financially, for life?

A date in Las Vegas is enticing but Froch knows he would have to fight a dangerous, live opponent for the fight to sell and for the fight to get anywhere near matching the euphoria of Saturday night at Wembley.

It’s a hard call for Froch to make but if he does decide to box on it has to be with 100% commitment and if he does decide to call it a day, then there must be no going back.
