"I'm officially retired from Boxing. So much to say & so many people to thank. But for now, I just want to say THANK YOU to my amazing fans."
Those were the words of British world champion and future Hall of Fame fighter Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KO's) earlier today. Froch has spent the last few weeks pondering retirement or stepping into the ring for one final time. Though he was expected to make an announcement last month Froch took some extra time to weigh on his decision finally breaking light to it this morning.
"I have nothing left to prove." Froch stated.
Froch will join the Sky Sports crew in retirement leaving his final fight in boxing to be in front of 80,000 fans at Wembley stadium where he scored a sensational knockout over George Groves. Froch's long career ranges from a come from behind upset knockout victory over Jermain Taylor, two wars with Mikkel Kessler, and victories over the likes of Lucian Bute, Jean Pascal, and Arthur Abraham. Froch will be missed by many as already hundreds of people have responded to his retirement with photos and videos of his past fights.
