Carl Froch inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame class of 2022

After a sensational career, Carl Froch has finally received the fruits of his labour, with an induction into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

While most mock him for his constant insistence on bringing up the fact he knocked out George Groves in front of 88,000 fans, now is an important time to reflect on the career of one of the best British fighters of all time.

While ‘The Cobra’ lacked fundamental skills, he more than made up for it with his incredible heart and determination. While applying unrelenting pressure, the Nottingham man would grind his opponents down and leave them flat on the canvas. And no matter how far down on the cards he was, you could never quite write him off, exhibit Jermain Taylor.

The larger-than-life character won the WBC, WBA and IBF super middleweight world titles in an astonishing 33-2 (24) career. He won his first championship belt against Jean Pascal in 2008, and picked up a plethora of big wins, including Robin Reid and Andre Dirrell. And despite a crushing loss at the hands of Andre Ward, he bounced back with an incredible performance against Lucian Bute.

Ultimately, the boxer concluded his campaign with a stunning knockout against Groves, before becoming the self-obsessed pundit we all know and begrudgingly love today.
