Froch to announce IBF defence on Monday 20th August
The Cobra to reveal November opponent live on Sky Sports News.
Carl Froch will announce the opponent for his first IBF World super middleweight title defence live on Sky Sports News on Monday (August 20).
The three time World champion will box in November in the first defence of the title he won in stunning fashion with a fifth round KO of Lucian Bute at the Capital FM Arena in front of a fanatical hometown support in Nottingham on May 26.
The 35 year-old will defend his belt in his hometown again this November and should he be successful he will travel to Montreal next spring to face Bute in a rematch. ‘The Bute fight night will go down in history as one of the greatest nights in British boxing history,’ said Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn.
‘Carl is chomping at the bit to get back into the ring and feel the roar of the Nottingham fans that he loves so much.’
Tickets will go on sale at 2pm on Monday.
