Recent Hall of Fame inductee, Carl Froch, has revealed his future plans, since retiring over seven years ago.
The ‘Cobra’ was a dominant force in the super-middleweight division, with a record of 10-2 in his twelve world title fights.
Froch brought his career to an end following a monumental win over British rival George Groves at Wembley Stadium and has since joined Lennox Lewis, Joe Calzaghe and Naseem Hamed as the fourth Brit to be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
Now, Froch seeks to move with the times, as he talked about the possibility of creating a new ’digital’ show named ‘Top Ten’.
In an interview with the Nottingham Post, Froch went into further detail on his latest post-retirement plans.
“Everyone’s going on to digital platforms on social media and that’s how they’re becoming more prominent now in the world of celebrity, if you like or even are interested in the sports world. It’s important to keep my face out there.
Carl Froch’s top ten is a concept that my agent has put together and you can have a top ten of pretty much anything. Top ten best heavyweights of all time, top ten upsets, top ten comebacks – it can just go on and on.
We’re going to interview celebrities and ask them what theirs are. We’re going to get another top boxer in, like Lennox Lewis, I’ve got a few people like that, and we’re going to discuss how and why this person is so good.
“So I’ve got a few ideas for that on the digital side of things. And to be honest I’m busy with Sky Sports, I’ve got stuff with DAZN, BBC Radio 5Live, so I’m as busy as I want to be because I’m retired.”
As the 45-year-old makes a foray into the online world, possibly as a presenter, it will give fans the chance to see a different side of Froch, who often jokes of the 80,000 fans attendance in his fight against Groves.
Despite what he may choose to do in future, Froch will forever be remembered as one of the greats of British boxing, with a résumé that is right up there amongst the best.
