Froch “wouldn’t train” to fight Jake Paul as he wouldn’t "consider it a fight"

Carl Froch has taken aim at Jake Paul once again saying he “wouldn’t even train” to face the ex-YouTuber as he “doesn’t consider it to be a fight”.

The four-time super middleweight world champion has regularly highlighted his dislike of the 25-year-old and his brother Logan Paul, recently claiming he would love to fight the pair in a “tag-team” bout. Froch is one of a long line of individuals who find the former Disney duo extremely unpalatable, especially when it comes to their respective boxing endeavours.

Logan has already fought and lost to Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout, while Jake is set to face Hasim Rahman Jr in what will be his first bout against an experienced, professional boxer. And by the sounds of things, Froch would like to jump ahead of Rahman and get into the squared circle with Paul.

“I would yeah, because I wouldn’t consider that to be a fight,” Froch said in an exclusive interview with Daily Star Sport when asked if he would ever be keen on fighting Paul, if the American ever called him out. “I know he’s doing what he is doing, and he is improving, and he has people that want to watch him box, which is great, fair play to him.

“But somebody like that, how do I put it, if I tried to play football against the top clubs, it’s going to be pointless me being on the bench, or me playing tennis against the top players. Jake Paul, is playing at being a professional boxer, but he is not.”

Froch retired in 2015, with a stunning record of 33 victories, 24 knockouts and only two defeats. He ended on a high with a spectacular knockout victory over George Groves in front of 80,000 people at Wembley.

Would Jake Paul stand any chance if he did decide to call Carl Froch out? Let us know in the comments section below

While he has frequently admitted that he feels he retired at the right time, Froch has kept himself in strong fighting shape, considering he retired seven years ago. And he would be very confident in his fitness and his frightening ability if he were to be called out by Paul.

“He can’t really fight, he knows how to stand up straight and he knows how to swing a punch, but he’s not a professional boxer,” Froch added. “So to answer your question, if Jake Paul called me out, then absolutely.

“I wouldn’t even train for it, I’d take him on, I’d beat him up, and I’d get a good pay day because it’s Jake Paul, then I would go home happy.”

Froch was speaking at the launch of the McLaren Turbo Series on PartyPoker, in association with McLaren Racing. The full McLaren Turbo Series schedule can be seen here.
