THE rumours were flying around of Tyson Fury v Carl Froch, not an unlikely catchweight contest but a ringside ruck in New York. The gossip suggested world heavyweight king Fury, in town at the Barclays Centre to watch rival champ Deontay Wilder retain his WBC belt against Artur Szpilka, had bumped into Froch and attempted to instigate a rumble. The part about Froch fleeing in fear never did seem realistic to anyone who has met ‘The Cobra’, one of the best British fighters of recent years and as brave as they come.

Now Froch, who had been working the Wilder fight for UK broadcaster Sky, has put the chatter to rest, addressing the erroneous rumours with trademark honesty and humour.

“I heard that myself,” he laughed as Boxing News informed him of the misguided stories. “Maybe he had an argument with a tall, dark, handsome guy and people thought it was me. So, I can confirm, there was no altercation between Fury and myself; I admire the big man.”
