It started because I think Froch was undeniably annoyed and bit jealous back before he was promoted by Eddie Hearn and before he was on Sky. He was with Hennessy and involved in top fight after top fight (Pascal, Dirrell, Kessler, Abraham) yet nobody but hardcore boxing fans knew who he was because he had no TV deal.
At the same time Khan was winning dud fights against the likes of Salita, Malignaggi and McCloskey yet everyone was raving about him on TV and in all the newspapers, boxing magazines etc. It's bound to wound Froch up.
Now the roles are reversed, everyone loves Froch and Khan is almost irrelevant.
I'm on Froch's side in this case, he's right when he says Khan made a right **** himself by banging about what a superstar he is before getting knocked flat on his **** by Garcia.
Where exactly was he 'banging about what a superstar' before getting beaten by Garcia? I've probably watched next to all the interviews he'd had and I don't recall him saying anything of the sort.
It's not as if Froch hasn't had a history of taking shots at others either. He's done it to countless amounts of fighters. Saying silly **** like he should retire and then saying that he would want no part of Kell Brook is just asking for a response, and as far as I remember, Amir still said nothing besides "Carl always has something to say", and again, today he takes another silly dig which has only made up for another dispute after they were both fine until Carl felt the need to comment on him, again.
