John Fury Calls Out Froch For A Wembley Fight - 'Snake, Hater, I Will Fight You'

John Fury has called out Carl Froch for a fight at Wembley Stadium following their war of words. 

Those comments were made in response to Froch’s criticism of Tyson Fury as he prepares to face Oleksandr Usyk for the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship of the world. Fury pulled out of the fight scheduled for February 17 after suffering from a big cut over his eye during a sparring session. That was the second time Fury withdrew from the fight after it was initially scheduled for December 23, 2023. 

The Gypsy King pulled out after the Francis Ngannou fight in which he suffered from bruises and cuts. The WBC Heavyweight Champion was sent to the canvas in the third but recovered to scrape through with a split decision win. Following the news of the cut, Froch blamed Fury.

“What’s he ever done? Who has he actually beaten? I don’t think there’s any excuse for him to get cut. It never happened to me. I used to wear a face guard. No elbows can get through so you mitigate getting injured. 

“That’s what you should be doing before a fight of this magnitude – taking massive precautions.I’m blaming his trainer, I’m blaming Tyson himself for not taking that precaution, whether you’re uncomfortable in it or not. Of course the guys are going to get close to you during sparring, but from the clips I’ve seen Fury was having a bit of a push around and a move, he was looking sloppy,” Froch stated

Those comments did not sit very well with John Fury. He took the words personally, feeling it was an unjustified criticism of Tyson’s career. John Fury has a history of calling out various people, even though the fights have not materialized.

This has happened to even Mike Tyson. But when it came to Froch, the former four-time world champion is in the Hall of Famer. Froch’s opinion understandably holds weight, but John Fury was focused more on getting the agreement in place. He vowed to face Froch if it made business sense. 

Fury On Froch

“Video to Carl The Snake Froch. You’re having plenty to say mate on your little podcast channel. John Fury’s rung the bell for you again, got you plenty of content, plenty of viewing figures that you were after. Listen, your mate George Groves said something very interesting. You and me, Wembley Stadium, 93,000 crowd. I’m up for that my friend. 

“You’ve had plenty to say. I have. I stand by every word that I’ve said. You don’t like me. Let’s see what you can do what about it. Hater versus Top Father – that’s what we’ll call this. But, it’s got to make business sense.  Get your people to contact me directly … get the contracts joined up, I will fight you, Wembley Stadium, this year. Don’t worry about that. John Fury will not back out of the fight with you my friend,” Fury stated 

The call-out is a likely publicity stunt, and it does not make a positive impression on Tyson Fury in light of the criticism coming his way. But boxing has shown that any fight can be made if it is demanded.
