Four-time world super-middleweight champion Carl Froch has announced his retirement from professional boxing.

“There will always be options and it’s never going to stop. There will always be someone next in line to take my scalp. If that never goes away, when am I ever going to retire?

“There’s still a fire in the belly but it’s been too long now. I don’t know if I can go one more time.”

The Nottingham-born boxer has held the WBC, WBA and IBF title in what was a astonishing career, winning 33 out of 35 fights.

He will now join Sky Sports as a pundit, sharing his expertise on Sky Sports’ boxing coverage.
