Default Showtime deal for Froch

I've just read that 'the peoples champion' Carl Froch has landed a deal with showtime. What do people think this will mean for his career?

Is it a deal. Or have they just signed they just signed his fight with Inkin?

I thought Showtime wernt going to sign fighters anymore, I thought they were going by a fight by fight basis...?

That's probably it, I've just read it on teletext, still it could provide him with good exposure...or bad exposure were he to get humiliated.

lol the last thing we need is for froch to have a wider audience. his head won't fit through the ropes if it swells any more.

but seriously this could be good news in that he may have to fight somoene world class if he inherits the belt by beating inkin and joe vacating.

Very good news for his career, so long as he gets past Inkin.
An impressive display there and he could have some real big profile fights in his future. A loss, though, would kill this dead in the water.

I will be a fan if he dispatched Inkin impressively and fights Kessler within 2 fights of that.

He's a Brit and I get behind him but no, I'm not what you'd call a 'fan'.

I'm probably the same, I do think he's a mouthy git but I do back him and want him to win. He gets a lot of flak and I think much of it is unfair, but then he does bring it down on himself.
