Carl Froch mocked by Tyson for Wembley record: ‘That’s not true’
Carl Froch revealed he received several sticks from Tyson Fury last year when the ‘King of Gypsy’ teased him about beating his stadium number.
Fury’s win over Dillian Whyte at Wembley was attended by some 94,000 fans, breaking Froch’s 80,000 prize tally in a rematch against George Groves in 2014.
Froch was above 5 live boxing podcasts as Steve Bunce recalled what the WBC heavyweight champion shouted to the former super middleweight champion.
“Ể Carl – did I ever tell you about the night I sold 90,000 at Wembley?”
In response, ‘The Cobra’ joked that Fury’s joke was “out of order.”
Two-time world champion Froch has never been shy when it comes to the record, once famously bringing it into conversation with Floyd Mayweather in a hilarious clip that later went viral.
Fury may have a chance to break his own record in the not-too-distant future. Promoter Frank Warren doesn’t rule out returning Wembley Arena for the undisputed fight between the 6’9 giants and Oleksandr Usykalthough conceding the Middle East would be the most likely host.
Negotiations between the two sides are said to be progressing well, with a date in early March said to target the heritage-defining clash.
If it ends, Fury vs Usyk will be the first undisputed heavyweight world title fight since 1999, when Lennox Lewis defeated Evander Holyfield at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
