John Fury has escalated his short feud with Carl Froch by offering to lace up in front of 90,000 fans at the national stadium.
The father of WBC Heavyweight Champion, Tyson, recently ranted about Froch questioning his son’s resume. He called him a ‘s**thouse’ and threatened to ‘kick him up the a**e.’
Froch duly responded, telling Fury senior that he would do no such thing. Now, the 59-year-old has made an offer via Freebets.com.
“Video to Carl The Snake Froch. You’re having plenty to say mate on your podcast channel. John Fury’s rung the bell for you again, got you plenty of content, plenty of viewing figures that you were after. Listen, your mate George Groves said something very interesting. You and me, Wembley Stadium, 93,000 crowd. I’m up for that my friend. You’ve had plenty to say. I have. I stand by every word that I’ve said. You don’t like me. Let’s see what you can do what about it. Hater versus Top Father – that’s what we’ll call this. But, it’s got to make business sense. Get your people to contact me directly … I will fight you, Wembley Stadium, this year.”
There’s not a doubt that Froch will respond, but little to no chance such a fight, exhibition or otherwise, materialises.
Meantime, Fury’s son Tyson has been forced to pull out of his undisputed title fight with Oleksandr Usyk and reschedule it for May due to a deep cut suffered in sparring.
Should the fight go ahead and Fury add the remaining three belts to his WBC title, Froch may revisit his criticism of the resume.
