28/08/2012 Froch announces next opponent in IBF showdown
Carl Froch has announced his next opponent and it comes in the shape of Yusaf Mack, the 32 year old from Philadelphia will look to take away Froch IBF crown. With 31 wins out of 37 Mack is brings no naivety to this bout, and with fights against the likes of Andrade, Johnson and Cloud Mack is no stranger to a big fight.
Froch comes off the back of a total dominant performance against Lucian Bute, where the Brit took centre stage and marked his spot as one the best Super middleweights around. Froch confirms that Mack wont take this fight lightly, but deep down must know that he is more than capable of stopping the American. It would seem that this is a fight that Froch will look to keep him in shape and see him through the new year where bigger fights await him. Certainly a rematch with Bute is still up for discussion, pencilled in dates suggest that this may happen in march of 2013. Froch will also be looking at a rematch with Kessler and maybe even Arthur Abraham after his win against Robert Steiglitz at the weekend.
With Andre Ward stepping up to face the Light Heavyweight Chad Dawson it is a great time for Froch to command the Super Middleweights and become the man to beat. I'm sure he still has a good few fights left in him, and as long as the opponents are out there for him and Hearn makes them happen, we are defiantly in for a treat with Carl Froch
