Froch opponent announcement delayed until next week...

Froch with his IBF title.
The next opponent for IBF super-middleweight champion and British fan favourite Carl Froch was expected to be announced today (August 20th) but it has now been delayed to Tuesday August 28th. 

It has been confirmed that he will fight on November 17th, and the venue will be the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham. But we will have to wait a little longer to find out who he will be fighting on that highly anticipated date.  

There has been plenty of rumours as to who it will be but there has been no little hints or inklings from Froch or his promoter Eddie Hearn. As the date draws closer it seems like the most likely opponent is Kelly Pavlik. The American has made his controversial thoughts on Froch known and has repeatedly said that he wants to fight the 35-year old. Mikel Kessler and Thomas Oosthuizen have been almost completely ruled out as potential opponents and the only other notable fighter that has been mentioned is fellow brit James DeGale. Maybe it could be just a walkover fight for him but as you all know, this is very unlikely for 'The Cobra'. 

Tickets for the fight will go on sale at 3pm on the day that the opponent is announced.
