The pair were asked how they believed the other would get on against Canelo, and when Froch was asked how Groves would fare against Canelo, and in true Carl Froch fashion, he made the question all about himself and gave this hilarious response.
One thing Carl and George did agree on was that they both believed Canelo is not big enough for the weight, but the pair would be made to eat their words as Canelo went on to become undisputed champion at super middleweight, and now embarks on world title glory in the light heavyweight division.
Full interview from 2021 can be seen below, and it is well worth a watch on comedy value alone.
