'The Cobra', Carl Froch responds to YOUR queries
WERE you nervous when you were asking Floyd Mayweather that now-infamous question in Las Vegas, regarding your rematch win over George Groves?
Dave Ashley, Facebook
No, I wasn’t nervous because it was all pre-scripted as a part of my dry sense of humour. I had already planned it. [Head of Sky Sports Boxing] Adam Smith told me I was going to get a chance to interview Floyd Mayweather and I thought, ‘I’m only going to get one question, what shall I ask him?’ I told Eddie Hearn before I did it, ‘Listen to what I’m going to ask Floyd Mayweather.’ When I asked him, he must have thought, ‘What the f*** have you asked me there?’ He wasn’t listening to me anyway, he knows who I am but he’s not bothered, he was about to fight in the biggest fight in the history of world boxing, he’s not interested in what I ask him, so I thought I might as well have a little tongue-in-cheek dig here. I enjoyed it and I’m still enjoying it. When I get my MBE off the Queen, I might ask her, does she know I knocked out George Groves in front of 80,000 fans at Wembley?
What are the chances of a fight with Gennady Golovkin happening?
Fifty-fifty. It would be more but I’ve heard recently that he’s considering dropping down, and he also mentioned me potentially moving down to 164lbs, which just isn’t an option.
