Carl Froch has hit out at the Gypsy King for damaging the sport of boxing and his own legacy.
Fury had labelled Froch and Bellew as ‘average’ fighters after he received criticism for taking the Francis Ngannou fight.

The Cobra went fully in and gave a damning assessment of the WBC heavyweight champion. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Froch On Fighting, he said:
“Your CV does not stack up against mine. It just doesn’t. You’ve got four wins as a world champion. Four! Steve Cunningham, an old cruiserweight. Wladimir Klitschko, you beat him in an absolute stinker. I was there that night. Alright, you won, nobody thought you’d win, you got the belts, fair play to you. Horrible fight, never watched it again. And you got two wins. You fought Deontay Wilder three times, beat him twice. They are the other two. You’ve got four wins as a world champion. I’ve got eleven wins as a world champion. To say that my career was average is just stupid. It’s ridiculous.”
Froch did admit that he didn’t really want this argument. He continued:
“It’s hurting me to give you stick. I’ve got a lot of love for you. But I’ve got to be honest and I’ve got to be straight. I want you to just be defending the WBC title against other champions or top challengers. The Usyk fight didn’t happen, you’re fighting Ngannou instead of Usyk. You should be defending your title really. You’ve got an obligation to the sport of heavyweight boxing as a champion.”
“When your career is over and finished, you want your legacy to be intact, you want that respect, and you are killing off the fans. The fans are turning against you.
