He’s Nottingham’s pride and joy when it comes to sport, specifically boxing, and he has now received one of the greatest honours possible, other than World titles, one bestowed by none other than the Queen. Carl Froch has received the MBE in recognition for what he has done for Great Britain in the sporting world. An accolade, which, could prove to be timely in either dissuading/persuading Froch to have that elusive, one last fight.
Froch had been in the midst of a flurry of talks regarding a potentially massive fight against Gennady Golovkin. Both parties were talking and seemed interested now though the talks have slowed down, and, seem that they won’t amount to anything. Primarily, down to Froch’s indecisive nature.
The Notts boxer was in fine spirit when talking to the Nottingham Post, saying,
“I couldn’t have achieved what I have without my fans in Nottingham so I dedicate this to them.”
This comment will of course, only serve to endear Froch with those from his home City, as well as the general public in England. But, many will be hoping this will either spur him on now to get into the ring. Or, that it will serve as a fitting endnote for his career, which, it would. Whether Froch decides to fight again or not though, is as unclear as could be. Hopefully, there will be some news coming out in the next month or so in which we will find out the future of the Cobra’s boxing career.
Of course, there was one specific moment again which Froch spoke of;
“I might just casually drop into the Queen that I knocked out George Groves in front of 80,000 people at Wembley. But all jokes aside, it’s brilliant for me and the city of Nottingham.”
Regardless of the news of the honour, the one question on boxing fans minds will be, ‘Will the Cobra fight again?’
