Boxing: Froch's future in doubt over venue
Tuesday 27 April 2010
Carl Froch's ongoing participation in the Super Six tournament was in serious doubt last night when it was confirmed there is no agreement for his next fight to be staged in Britain. Froch must defeat the scoreboard leader Arthur Abraham to progress to the semi-finals after losing his WBC super-middleweight title to Mikkel Kessler in Denmark on Saturday. The 32-year-old says he was the victim of a hometown decision and is ready to quit the competition if his next contest is staged in Germany.
His promoter, Mick Hennessy, claims to have a long-standing arrangement that the fight, pencilled in for 21 August, would be staged in the UK. But Sauerland Events, who promote both Kessler and Abraham, released a statement suggesting Froch will have to fight overseas once again.
