Khan's pay-per-view TV KO opens the door for Cobra Froch to cash in with Sky Sports

 

Carl Froch is likely to be the beneficiary of Amir Khan’s pay-per-view bust up with Sky Sports.

 

Team Khan’s decision to switch to the fledgling Primetime cable network for Saturday night's contentious world light-welterweight title defence against Paul McCloskey appears to have opened a window for Sky to give Froch his long overdue exposure to their wider audience.

 

The Nottingham Cobra, who has been overlooked quite scandalously by mainstream television in his own land through a series of thrilling world title fights against many of the world’s other leading super-middleweights, is negotiating the broadcast rights for his Super Six semi-final against veteran Jamaican Glen Johnson in Atlantic City on June 4.

 

Froch is doing the deals personally now he has severed ties with his long-time promoter Mick Hennessy, the problems with clinching major TV contract having become an issue between them.

 

Now, with Khan removed from their budget at least for the time being, Sky have freed up funds to engage in talks with Froch.

 

Both sides will be keen to reach agreement for at least a two-fight deal, the second being the final of the Super Six series assuming Froch goes through

Froch is gonna lose now, wait and see.

 

 

I thought the same....he's probably going to be jinxed just as he's set for stardom.

The same happened to Khan in his first PPV fight vs Prescott, and many other fighters have fallen by the wayside as soon as things start to go right,.

Johnson isn't just turning up to make up the numbers anyway....he's the biggest challenge in the tournament outside of Ward imo.

I think it might be something they want to tie up after the Johnson fight. At this point, losing to Glen could still lower Froch's value and Johnson is a very live threat that he might be overlooking a bit. Barring an upset in that one, then Froch is a great signing whether he beats Ward in the Final or not. The surplus of good matchups at SMW and Froch's willingness to take them all on should provide Sky with some good Cobra fights for the next 3 or 4 years.

Well, Glen didn't have the problem making SMW for the first time in a decade that I thought he might, but we also need to remember that beating Allan Green's overrated/undeserving butt wasn't akin to beating one of the other participants. The Roadwarrior was in easy with the weakest link in the chain.
