If Carl Froch doesn’t get the fight he wants, he is going home.
The IBF and WBA super middleweight champion has said that he will hang up his gloves if his proposed fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. falls through. Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom recently stated that talks with Chavez promoter Bob Arum at Top Rank had recently re-opened to see if they can put together a fight for January 25th 2015.
Hearn has admitted, however, that if the fight happened, it would happen for this year.
Apparently Carl Froch isn’t thinking to much about it, as he knows putting his last fight on hold for Chavez is risky due to how unreliable he has been before in pulling out of a fight with Gennady Golovkin earlier this year.
In an interview with BBC Radio, Froch said that he only wants to fight Chavez Jr. and has no interested in a Plan B fight against former Olympic champion James DeGale.
“If I can’t fight in Vegas, I need a serious think about whether I want to finish by fighting DeGale, and beating him,” Froch told BBC Radio Nottingham.
“I don’t know if I can get motivated to fight him. He’s not good enough. If Vegas can’t happen I’ll seriously consider retiring.”
Its not surprising Carl Froch is considering retiring if he doesn’t get the fight in Vegas, as he would be hard pressed to outdo what he did in his recent win over George Groves. Froch knocked his opponent out in front of a 80,000 thousand people at Wembley Stadium in the 8th round.
