At home with the family Froch... at least until Britain's best boxer moves to the USA
To his astonishment and delight Carl Froch found himself being mobbed by autograph hunters and well-wishers as he visited the vast Westfield shopping complex in west London the other day.
So resigned had he become to walking unnoticed through the streets of the capital that for a moment he thought the crowds were descending on the glamour model who is the mother of their child.
But no. Suddenly, Britain’s best boxer is getting the wider recognition his considerable exploits deserve.
Family man: Carl Froch with his girlfriend Rachael and son Rocco
Not a moment too soon. Although perhaps not in time to prevent our world super-middleweight champion from turning his muscular back, at least partially, on this country.
As he heads for Atlantic City and the final of the longest and toughest tournament in the annals of boxing, Froch reveals that he and the lovely Rachael Cordingley are planning to set up home in America.
To those who know him well, it will seem inconceivable that Froch would choose to spend most of each year living anywhere but Nottingham, where he is a very local hero.
Getting ‘The Cobra’ out of his home town has been like pulling a whale out of water.
But the delayed, although still potentially epic, collision between his intensely heavy punching and the slick Olympian skills of Andre Ward on December 17 will be the fifth of his last six fights for which he has had to venture abroad. And he is a man changed by the experience.
