Carl Froch Gets Inducted Into The International Boxing Hall Of Fame

Carl Froch was the latest British fighter to become inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

The four-time world champion has some stellar names on his record, with victories over Lucian Bute, Mikkel Kessler and, of course, George Groves.

Froch’s victory over the latter was his career highlight, as he knocked out Groves in the eighth round at Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 people, which was the Cobra’s last fight.

While that career highlight lives long in the memory, Froch was comprehensively beaten by Andrew Ward, which was the only loss he failed to avenge. 

But looking back, Froch had plenty to be thankful for, as he couldn’t help but mention his victory over Groves in his acceptance speech.  

“What I was going to do was I going to get up here and try and wing it like David Brent in The Office, but I realise this is serious business, the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

“8,000 fans in Nottingham for my first world title fight, now that’s not the punchline, that’s not the big one. And my last fight was in the national stadium, Wembley Stadium, in front of 80,000 fans.

“I’m going to fly back tomorrow, I’m going to step back on English soil, and I’m going to be the proudest man in the West because of this, so thank you very much,” Froch
