Carl Froch in a brilliant clip that sees him turned down for two tickets to try to go to Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko.
For boxing fans familiar with Froch, you’ll know he likes to remind us that he once boxed in front of 80,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.
Froch has an underestimated sense of humor it turns out too. The former super-middleweight champion of the world appeared in this skit clip today on TV:

Good man, Carl.
His 80,000 tickets record for his second fight with George Groves will be eclipsed later this month when Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko throw down at the same venue.
Froch has been retired since that famous night a couple of years ago. He’s been linked with occasional comebacks against the likes of Gennady Golovkin and James De Gale.
But none have ever come to fruition.
One senses now that the former champion is retired for good. Particularly as he seems to be enjoying the media and punditry work for Sky at the moment.
As well as appearing in clips like the above on Sky Sports.
What a career it was for him though. When you really look back on it, he was involved in some quality fights over the years.
Everyone will remember the Groves fights. Even the Lucian Bute bout was another classic for him. But one of my personal favorites was the Jermain Taylor fight in the US.
Not many knew of Froch at the time.
He travelled across the pond to face a man respected in world boxing. Taylor had beaten the great Bernard Hopkins only a couple of years before.
Froch was behind on all the scorecards and got knocked down in the fight. He needed something spectacular to pull off the upset in the last round.
