Froch skips rope in New York (pics Tom Casino)
WBC super-middleweight champion Carl Froch is so annoyed at missing out on seeing his young son walk for the first time that he is determined to take out his frustration on Glen Johnson.
Britain’s world champion faces American ’Road Warrior’ Johnson at the Adrian Phillips Ballroom at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J on Saturday evening and Froch plans to make up for not seeing his son’s first unaided steps by bashing Johnson.
Speaking at today‘s Media workout at the Mendez Boxing Gym in New York City today Froch said: "Rachael (Cordingley) texted me that our son, Rocco, is walking. He took his first steps and I missed it. And I’m going to take that out on Johnson,
"Johnson is perfect for me. He’s made for me. He’ll be right there, right in front of me.
"The winner of this fight is going to the Final of the best boxing tournament in the world, the Super Six World Boxing Classic. And the winner is going to be me. I heard Johnson’s team talking about an easy fight. They can think what they want. I’m not concerned with that rubbish.’’
