The former world super-middleweight champion was part of the commentary team for last night’s heavyweight unification fight between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker.
It wasn’t long ago that it was Froch selling out stadiums (as he often reminds us) but these days his role in the sport is from a commentary perspective for Sky Sports.
Froch’s dry humor, sometimes wacky statements but always brutal honesty, appears to be creating a cult following online with pretty much anything he says around the big fights these days.
While Joshua’s unanimous points decision wasn’t the knockout fans hoped for, he did show he could go the twelve rounds for the first time as a pro and that he could stick to a strict game plan when needed to as well.
However Froch doesn’t believe his nearest rival WBC champion Deontay Wilder will be worried by what he saw last night.
(Hat tip IFL YouTube):
Indeed, Wilder didn’t think much of it going off his social media reaction last night.
The question is will the fight be able to be made this year, between Joshua and Wilder that is?
Fans continue to put pressure on for it to be made but both teams appear to not be communicating directly with one another much.
Mostly in public through the media more than anything.
