Carl Froch has warned Yusaf Mack that he will pay for his pre-fight jibes when the pair meet for the Nottingham star’s IBF World super middleweight in Betfair’s ‘True Brit’ on Saturday night.

Mack appeared live on Sky Sport’s Ringside programme after the first press conference for the clash and called Froch “a fake Joe Calzaghe.” The pair came face-to-face again at a press conference at the Capital FM Arena, and The Cobra told the challenger that he will “face his wrath” in his ninth consecutive World title fight.

“I was just letting him know that he said too much when my back was turned and it might be inside his mind that I’m a bit wound up,” said Froch, a huge 1-18 favourite with Betfair to retain the title and 1-4 to do so inside the distance. “I just wanted his to know he talked a load of rubbish on Ringside about Joe Calzaghe, but he probably spoke without thinking so I put him right on that.  

“I have to put on a good performance, be strong, sharp and confident, put my work together and put educated pressure on him because he could be dangerous. He’s not a big and tall light heavyweight so he could be better at super middleweight so I’m not taking anything for granted and I am making sure that I do my work right and that will be enough to defend my title in style.”  

Mack is a big 15-1 underdog with Betfair to claim Froch’s IBF crown but the Philadelphian is confident that he has The Cobra rattled and he will be able to use that to shock the world.  

“I got under his skin with the Calzaghe comment and I hope that’s to my advantage on the night,” said Mack. “On Saturday I’m going to prove that I’m ready for this fight. I’ve lived in the gym and I’ve given myself the chance to show that I am the fighter I can be. I really believe I’m going to be taking the belt home.  

“I haven’t come to fight the crowd, I’ll block them out on Saturday and I have nothing to prove to them - Froch has the pressure to impress them not me, he’s said he’s going to knock me out so the pressure is on him to do that, and when I’m still standing there after the sixth round when people think I’m going to tire, what’s he going to do? I don’t fade and he can’t beat me.” to Doghouse Boxing.
