Retired former super middleweight world champion, Carl Froch, recently made headlines with his claim that he could beat Conor McGregor in an MMA cage.
The Irish UFC legend appears ready to accept the challenge, and fans are eagerly anticipating the potential showdown. In this article, we’ll explore the details of this feud and what it could mean for the world of combat sports.
Carl Froch has been engaged in a public feud with YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, but it appears that he may have bitten off more than he can chew with Conor McGregor.
“I could be getting myself in trouble here or into a position I can’t wiggle out of, but I think I’d take him on in the cage. Is that ridiculous, am I wrong?
“I’d take him on in a cage, he’s too small.”
McGregor is currently on the comeback trail after a leg break in 2021. He is widely considered one of the biggest stars in mixed martial artists of all time. Froch’s comments, made during a discussion with old rival George Groves, sparked a response from McGregor on social media.
Froch’s comments about his potential victory over McGregor did not go unnoticed, and the Irishman wasted no time in responding. McGregor called on boxing promoter Eddie Hearn to arrange a bout between him and Froch in an MMA cage.
The tweet read: “@EddieHearn, get this signed up lad” accompanied by a crying laughing emoji.
While it remains to be seen whether or not Froch will accept the challenge, this potential bout has already generated significant buzz among fans of both MMA and boxing.
If the fight does come to fruition, it would likely draw a massive audience and generate a great deal of revenue for the promoters involved.
