Froch: I'm going to spark Dodson

05.10.06 - Carl The Cobra Froch has promised to knock out long-term rival Tony Dodson on Friday 24th November when he attempts to win the British Title outright in front of his loyal hometown fan base on a Hennessy Sports event at the Nottingham Arena.

The undefeated 29-year-old spoke about the long-awaited showdown during an interview he gave to the web-site of the high-flying Nottingham Panthers whilst attending their recent 4-2 win over the Cardiff Devils.

I have been scheduled to fight him a couple of times, Froch explained to When he was British champion, (in early 2004), I was his mandatory and he chose not to fight me. He was training for the fight and he pulled out with an injury - bad back, bad leg. Then he fell off his bike bad knee. The excuses kept coming out.

It does seem hes been training for this fight for over two years Hes had a long-time to prepare for me, to get himself set and ready. Hell come and hell be bringing a big force with him. Hell be trying to upset the Carl Froch train, but its not happening.

Im going to make a promise to my fans this time: Im going to do a good job and knock him spark out. I dont usually say that, I dont usually threaten people with knockouts, but Im definitely going to do a number on him. Its going to be one to watch.
