Why Carl Froch Should Be Mindful When Talking About Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou

The man always says how things are. So, it should not be surprising that former super-middleweight champion, Carl Froch has given his direct opinion on the upcoming Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou heavyweight bout. The crossover battle will take place on October 28th in Saudi Arabia. Fury has recently said that he will be focusing mainly on events similar to the Ngannou fight from now on as there is a lack of appetising title defences for him to make. We will talk more about that later.

Back to Froch, he was quoted as saying on Boxing-Social.com, “In terms of professional boxing, this is a load of crap, I’ve got to be honest.”

I think it is a fair assumption that many people would agree with that. However, it was not so long ago that Froch said that he would fight the Paul brothers, Jake and Logan.

“Jake Paul and Logan Paul on the same night would be interesting. I’d fight them both on the same night and they can tag each other,” said Carl to BonusCodeBets.

While it is not contradictory of Carl as such, hypothetical bouts between him and the Paul brothers would be seen largely as a gimmick. A public event that would only primarily focus on feeding big celebrity names rather than good quality, genuine fights to fans and the masses. So, if we are being honest then I do not see that there is much room there for him to criticise Fury vs Ngannou. It would be a different story had he remained quiet on the subject. Not that anyone can blame him. We need a big name to say how bad these “fights” are for boxing. So, I actually encourage him to be vocal about it, as I am sure you, the reader, would.

As for Tyson Fury, it seems that at this point money is his main concern rather than building a solid legacy for himself. And that is a shame. There is time for him to change his mind about his career trajectory, and let us hope that he does. Because right now he is losing fans by the day due to the decisions he has been making about what his boxing legacy will ultimately leave behind.

Does he care, though? I get the impression that he particularly does not.
