20/11/2012 What next for Carl Froch?
OK so who had Yusaf Mack causing Carl Froch any trouble what so ever....anyone...no me neither. In fact the odds were so highly stacked against Mack as Froch is currently in the form of his life and this weekend looked better than ever.
From the opening bell Froch took charge and looked more than comfortable, Mack was never able to find any rhythm as Froch was sharp and accurate with every punch. Going into the fight Froch knew what was in store for him but i don't think no one quite realised how easy this was going to be.
After three rounds it was over and Froch retained his Championship crown, and now finds himself looking at another top draw fight early next year. Lucian Bute was the man who was next in line for Froch as a rematch was written into the initial contract earlier this year, but Bute's camp look to have pulled back slightly and may not be entering another encounter with Froch.
Theres only two other men out there that Froch wants and both have beaten him in previous fights, Mikkel Kessler and Andre Ward remain the only two fighters that have gained wins over the 'Cobra'. Both have shown interest over the last couple of days, with Ward Tweeting that he wants to come over to the UK and fight, and Kessler saying he will accept Froch's challenge of a rematch.
Next year looks to be the biggest year yet for the man from Nottingham, if all goes to plan he may have a chance to avenge his defeats, and maybe even add another world title to his name.
