The Fight Every Boxing Fan Wants To See Could Be About To Happen In Wembley

The Fight Every Boxing Fan Wants To See Could Be About To Happen In Wembley
By Gavan Casey

Forget Mayweather vs Pacquiao- it was what it was; a tactical boxing match, where one of the great fighters of the past 15 years was outclassed by the very best of this era. But according to ESPN and Balls sources, today we moved a step closer to a genuine phonebooth war, between two of the most exciting brawlers on the planet.

Carl Froch vs Gennady Golovkin might just happen.

Froch's promoter Eddie Hearn told the Daily Mail,

I've now spoken with Carl directly about this and he is interested. I only want him to take it if he's genuinely motivated because it is a high-risk fight.

But it would be massive and we can fill Wembley again. Given Carl's interest, we have already opened negotiations with Golovkin's people and they are very keen.

Golovkin is the most feared fighter in the world now and Carl doesn't need this fight. But he says he is intrigued by how he would deal with him. He's crazy that way.

Golovkin - the most avoided middleweight on the planet, with a record of 33-0 (30KOs) - has won his last 20 fights by stoppage, chopping down Willie Monroe Jr in another world title defence last Saturday.

Froch, inactive since his 8th round, one-punch knockout of bitter rival George Groves this time last year, has toyed with the possibility of retirement, but it seems a Wembley return against a fighter considered by most to be the baddest mofo on the planet has once again whet The Cobra's appetite.

GGG's promoter Tom Loefler said to BoxingScene,

We've told Froch's promoter Eddie Hearn that Gennady will go to 168lbs to fight Carl in what would be a tremendous fight. But it is not clear whether Carl will retire or fight again.

Word from various writers in London is that negotiations have already begun for what would be a guaranteed 'bombs away' affair between two slug-merchants who eat shots for breakfast.

For Golovkin, the move up in weight could prove his mettle, and fighting in front of 80,000 fans would likely solidify him as a bona fide star.

For the ever-confident Froch, it'll take more than incessantly chopping wood to prepare for arguably the most dangerous opponent of his career. All I'm saying is my grass could do with a cut, if he fancies it.
