Hennessy Sports and Carl Froch Part Company
By Alan Wass: News is just in that WBC World Super-Middleweight belt holder, Carl Froch, has parted company with Hennessy Sports. A surprise in many ways (and not in others), Froch was always bragging about having the best promoter in the sport – delusional? For sure!

“I'm no longer working with my representative, Mick Hennessy. My next two fights are already mapped out within the Super Six tournament," Froch told the boxing website, livefight.com. “I'm just solely concentrating right now on beating the likes of Glencoffe Johnson and hopefully Andre Ward.”
I always thought that Froch seemed to receive a bum deal in regards to Hennessy obtaining his fighter the UK television deal he so desperately seeks. A fighter of Froch’s caliber should already be a household name in England, not just for his ability and achievements, but also because of his charisma and intriguing personality.
Froch went on to say, "The Super Six is really going to be drilled home over the next six months, and it will be really special if I can put the shots together and wrap this trophy up in style. It's all I think about right now. I'm going all guns blazing to win it."
Word is that Froch will promote himself in the near future, and who knows, maybe he can get that Sky Television deal that he so deserves. One thing is for sure, with the way the Englishman promotes himself in the verbal stakes, he is probably the best man for the job.
Regardless of the outcome in his semi-final bout against Glencoffe Johnson in Atlantic City on May 21, ‘The Cobra’ will still be in line for some big money fights, which for his popularity in the United Kingdom, needs to reach a wider audience. Maybe this is the main reason behind Carl Froch’s decision to go it alone.
