Carl Froch Mocked Jake Paul’s Credentials
FightersTalkTV.com – The former super-middleweight world champion Carl Froch questioned Jake Paul’s credentials as a boxer. The British former professional boxer who competed from 2002 to 2014 claimed he ‘wouldn’t train’ to fight the YouTube star Paul. And has made it clear that he is not an admirer of the 25-year-old and his older brother Logan, who recently signed for WWE.
The 45-year-old Carl Froch has been retired since defeating George Groves in an epic rematch at Wembley Stadium back in 2014, but would not hesitate to step back in the ring and face Paul as he wouldn’t consider it a fight. The Sheffield star has yet to make a return to the ring but has been outspoken about YouTube star Paul’s boxing career. And Froch would be so confident of beating Paul that he would be willing to touch gloves without any kind of training.
“I would yeah, because I wouldn’t consider that to be a fight,” Froch told the Daily Star when asked if he would consider fighting Paul. “I know he’s doing what he is doing, and he is improving, and he has people that want to watch him box, which is great, fair play to him. But somebody like that, how do I put it, if I tried to play football against the top clubs, it’s going to be pointless me being on the bench, or me playing tennis against the top players. Jake Paul, is playing at being a professional boxer, but he is not.”

The four-time super middleweight world champion has regularly highlighted his dislike of the 25-year-old and his brother Logan Paul, recently claiming he would love to fight the pair in a “tag-team” bout. Froch is one of a long line of individuals who find the former Disney duo extremely unpalatable, especially when it comes to their respective boxing endeavors.
Logan has already fought and lost to Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout, while Jake is set to face Hasim Rahman Jr in what will be his first bout against an experienced, professional boxer. And by the sounds of things, Froch would like to jump ahead of Rahman and get into the squared circle with Paul.
“He [Jake] can’t really fight, he knows how to stand up straight and he knows how to swing a punch, but he’s not a professional boxer,” Froch added. “So to answer your question, if Jake Paul called me out, then absolutely.
“I wouldn’t even train for it, I’d take him on, I’d beat him up, and I’d get a good pay day because it’s Jake Paul, then I would go home happy.” This comes after Froch claimed Anthony Joshua will need a brain transplant in order to beat Oleksandr Usyk in their rematch next month.

Carl Froch has not fought since beating George Groves at Wembley in 2014.
Froch retired in 2015, with a stunning record of 33 victories, 24 knockouts and only two defeats against Andre Ward and Mikkel Kessler. He ended on a high with a spectacular knockout victory over George Groves in front of 80,000 people at Wembley.
