Carl Froch has admitted he could be tempted by a comeback struggle in opposition to Nigel Benn, regardless of wanting to guard his nostril job.
It was introduced final month that 55-year-old Benn is coming back to face 40-year-old Sakio Bika on November 23 in a quest to seek out ‘closure’.
The talk got 42-year-old Froch, who quit the sport following his dramatic KO of George Groves five years ago, thinking about his own options to return to the sport.
Regarding whether he’d been approached with comeback offers, he said on the ‘Froch on Fighting’ Podcast: “I’ve, yeah.
“Broadcaster DAZN, I spoke to a man there and there was huge cash on the desk, I’m speaking tens of hundreds of thousands.
“I thought of it, however I didn’t suppose for very lengthy. I had a chat with Rob McCracken and he was like, ‘Pay attention, simply go away it alone.’
“Rob did say no. However he’s alright, he’s bought AJ [Anthony Joshua], he don’t want the ‘Cobra’.”
When requested if he’d think about going through Benn, Froch half-jokingly, half-seriously replied: “I all the time stated I’d have to decide on my dance associate proper.
“I simply suppose I’d have an enormous benefit over somebody like Nigel Benn, purely as a result of I’m 42 and he’s 55.
“If the cash was respectable as effectively. what? You’d should look it, wouldn’t you?
“I’ve all the time stated I wouldn’t struggle and I don’t wanna get my nostril flattened.”
Finally the ‘Cobra’ concluded in two minds and stated: “Nah it’s not for me.
“I’d have a give it some thought although, if the telephone rang.”
