Froch 'bored' with Calzaghe talk

Froch is undefeated in 25 fights

World super-middleweight champion Carl Froch says he is bored of talking about a possible fight with Joe Calzaghe.

The 31-year-old, who successfully defended his WBC title in Connecticut last week, has often talked about taking on the Welshman, who is retired.

But Froch told BBC Radio Nottingham: "To be honest, I'm getting bored of the whole saga with Joe Calzaghe.

"The reason we mentioned it before is because he was the one talking about coming out of retirement."

Froch insists he has other options after beating Jermain Taylor in Connecticut.

"I'm world champion and I've proved myself at world level.

"There are some real big fights out there for me. I don't need Calzaghe as much as he thinks I do. "
