A round up of the latest news stories from across the world of sport.
Carl Froch threw nearly a thousand punches to beat Mikkel Kessler on points – one score a ludicrously lop-sided 118-110, alongside more reasonable verdicts of 115-113 and 116-112 – but he surely knows he shared the honours if not the decision with the beaten Dane.
Carl Froch stares at the goose bumps that have risen on his muscular left arm and a shiver runs through him.
Carl Froch is quickly becoming British boxing’s poster boy, despite being the grand old sporting age of 35.
Andre Ward, the only fighter to properly embarrass Carl Froch – and a God-fearing man for whom leaving his hometown of Oakland, California, is an ordeal – is seriously thinking about coming to the UK for a rematch, says Froch's promoter, Eddie Hearn.
Against an opponent who would have looked more at home in an octopus tank, Carl Froch kept his IBF world super-middleweight title in front of friends and family in Nottingham with a knockout of the unconvincing American challenger Yusaf Mack.
Carl Froch was branded a 'fake Joe Calzaghe' by his next opponent Yusaf Mack; so there is no doubt he is looking forward to winning their upcoming boxing bout.
