Carl Froch Retires

By David Martinez /

Last month, at age 38, four-time super middleweight champion Carl Froch, from Nottingham, England, UK, has officially announced his retirement.

The British fighter enjoyed a successful career for fourteen years. His professional ring record stands at 33 wins and 2 losses, with 24 by knockout.

His only losses were to Mikkel Kessler in 2010, which he avenged three years later, and to Andre Ward in 2011 in the final of the Super Middleweight Six World Boxing Classic Tournament. The judges’ scores in the Ward fight were 115-113, 115-113, 118-110 … my unofficial scorecard was 117-111 for the winner Ward.

I was truly humbled to be an inductee this past Sunday, May 17, 2015, into the WBC Legends of Boxing Museum Hall of Fame. The “gala” event was attended by 350 people and took place at the American Sports University in San Bernardino, California with Bill Dempsey Young serving as Master of Ceremony.
