WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly has branded Carl Froch a ‘Hypocrite after the IBF super middleweight champion criticized him for sparring with Mikkel Kessler in the run up to his rematch with the Danish boxer this weekend.
Froch defends his title against Kessler at the O2 Arena in London and says Froch was himself disloyal when he advised Kessler before he fought fellow Briton Brian Magee.
"If anything, Froch is being hypocritical because he was advising Kessler how to beat Brian Magee last year," Cleverly told Walesonline.com.
"Kessler asked me to go out and spar in Copenhagen. I decided it would be a great experience to go and work with someone of Mikkel’s calibre.
"I’ve got no issue working with Mikkel because I don’t owe Carl Froch anything. In fact, we are rivals.
"Why should I have remorse? I don’t even know Carl and we have never socialised."
