Although not apologizing to WBA super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler for saying he will kill him if he has to on Saturday night, IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch has issued an apology of sorts on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Boxing Board of Control Secretary Robert Smith told the BBC that Froch will be facing an investigation regarding the kill threat. “We are surprised and disappointed in his comments. I have spoken to his management team of Rob McCracken and Eddie Hearn and we are looking into it and will deal with it accordingly. Carl is licensed by the Midlands Area Council and they will deal with it as quickly as they possibly can. Obviously we are not in a position to do anything about it before the fight.”
I’m sorry if my comments yesterday offended anyone. This fight means so much to me & emotions are running high. See you at the weigh in.
