Retired boxer Carl Froch "can't wait" to begin Sky Sports punditry role

Four-time world champion Carl Froch admits that he "can't wait" to begin his new role as Sky Sports pundit after retiring from boxing.

Four-time world champion Carl Froch has expressed his excitement about beginning a new role as Sky Sports analyst after retiring from boxing.

The Nottingham-born fighter, who held WBC, WBA and IBF super-middleweight titles during his career, announced his retirement this morning.

Now, it has been confirmed by Sky Sports that the 38-year-old will join Adam Smith and Johnny Nelson on the broadcaster's boxing punditry team.

"Sky Sports is the home of boxing and has followed me throughout my career," said Froch. "I can't wait to join the team and help bring fans the best fighters, the best contests and the best analysis.

"Nothing can replace the thrill of stepping into the ring, but with Sky Sports I'll be doing the next best thing."

Froch's final fight was a knockout win over George Groves at Wembley last May.
