28/05/12 Update on Carl Froch's situation
“Good news….Just been to Hospital & the x-ray on my right hand has come back clear, I will resume training in 2 weeks.”
The words just Tweeted by Carl Froch, great news for the new IBF Champion and the British fans who await to see what route the 'Cobra' will now take with his next fight.Froch seems to have ruled out any chance of taking on Andre Ward again but does think he can beat him if he was to get a rematch with the American. My advice would be to stay well clear of Andre Ward for now and make a couple of defences of the crown with the likes of Kessler and Dirrell, 2 rematches I'm sure fight fans would love to see. Kessler has confirmed he would happily travel to England to take on Froch and i think this will be the likely outcome.
I'm sure Froch will continue to deliver top quality opponents, both because of his age but also he has never been one to duck a fight. Froch said himself on Steve Bunce's Boxing hour that he was 'no spring chicken' and is perhaps closing in on the end of his career, but knows that there are many matches available, even more so now he has the belt. Froch stated after the Bute fight that if he had lost he would have pulled the plug on his career and retired, this shows that Froch has clearly looked at his future and any other loss might convince him to end it. But for now the Brit is in great shape and after this blip with his hand he looks ready and raring to go.
