Carl Froch has revealed that he would like his next fight to be held in his hometown of Nottingham.

The 34-year-old, who lost to Andre Ward on Saturday evening, also confirmed that discussions are ongoing with Lucian Bute and Mikkel Kessler.

"We're speaking to [IBF champion] Lucian Bute and the Kessler fight is obviously a great rematch," said Froch.

"But for us it would be nice to do something back in Nottingham.

"I definitely want to fight back in England, back at home, that's for sure."

One venue that has been mentioned as a potential host for a bout is Nottingham Forest's City Ground.
