Carl Froch interested in fighting Jean Pascal

Talking to Carl Froch has confirmed that he would be open to a rematch with Jean Pascal, the current Ring, WBO, WBC light heavyweight champion. The two fought for the vacant WBC Super-Middleweight in what British fans voted their Fight of 2008, with the victor Froch saying that the experience has cause the two to “become like Rocky and Apollo. We’re friendly outside the ring and I wished him all the best before this fight”. Despite this friendship Froch would be more than willing to step in the ring against Pascal again, either at a catchweight or in a light heavyweight title fight saying that

“A fight with Pascal would have all the ingredients and the Bell centre looked very good indeed. So long as Marlon Wright didn’t referee it then that would be an option. Or we could do it here in the UK as he has won over a lot of fans this side of the pond too. British boxing fans voted our last meeting the fight of the year, so you just know it would sell like hot cakes here too. I’d be up for it in New York or Vegas even – anywhere outside of Germany would be great.”

A seemingly more confident and relaxed Froch also spoke about his experiences travelling to Denmark for the fight with Kessler, what he has in store for Arthur Abraham and the possibility of his final Super Six Group Stage fight being shown on Sky Sports.
