Froch: ‘Big night in London would be nice’
Froch who returns to the ring for his Super Six semi-final clash against Glen Johnson on May 21 has said he will fight anywhere but would like a British show for his fans.
Speaking in his column in the Nottingham Evening Post, Froch said:
‘My Showtime contract stipulates that the semi-final must be held in America. There was talk that Johnson's team wanted it to be held at the Silverdome at Detroit in America, as they are paying handsomely to lure big fights to the premises.
‘But the recent bout between two American starlets Tim Bradley and Devon Alexander didn't make a huge splash on tickets. So an Englishman and Jamaican may not break that trend, even though we'd make a better fight of it.
‘The other ideas we're receptive to are possible venues in Las Vegas and Canada, both of which I'd have absolutely no problem with.
‘If all the interested parties do relax their stance on the American soil aspect of the contract, then perhaps we may well join David Haye on at a London venue somewhere such as the O2 Arena.
‘As I keep underlining, I'm pleased to be fighting anywhere – but a big night in London would be a nice change for my loyal Cobra fans who have clocked up the air miles in the last couple of years.’
