|Carl ‘The Cobra’ Froch|
Carl Froch the WBC World Super-Middleweight champion, has parted company with Hennessy Sports and has decided to promote his next two Super Six fights against Glencoffe Johnson and Andre Ward by himself.
Froch 33, had always championed Mick Hennessy has the best promoter in the business, but must feel has did British lightweight champion John Murray recently when he split from the same promoter to join Frank Warren, believing that Hennessy had taken him as far as he could.
The main issue it seems in such cases is the lack of TV input in our game and only certain promoters holding the key to TV deals to get there fighters on exposure on the box and where the money is in the sport.
In a statement Froch told: livefight.com
“I’m no longer working with my representative Mick Hennessy.” confirmed Froch.
“My next two fights are already mapped out within the Super Six tournament. I am just solely concentrating right now on beating the likes of Glencoffe Johnson and hopefully Andre Ward.”
Froch will be fighting in Atlantic City on 4th June and expects a few Cobra fans to make the journey out there.
“Yeah hopefully it will be much better attended with it being nice and sunny, along the coast and only an hour from NYC.
“Showtime want me over to be ringside for the Manny Pacquiao versus Shane Mosley fight too, so we can put maximum exposure together. Interviews from ringside and being broadcast on such a big fight will be great exposure.
“The Super Six is really going to be drilled home over the next six months and it will be really special if I can put the shots together to wrap this trophy up in Style.
“It’s all I think about right now. I’m going all guns blazing to win it.” said Froch
