“Rachael (Cordingley) texted me that our son, Rocco, is walking. He took his first steps and I missed it. And I’m going to take that out on Johnson,” said a fit and confident Froch, who boasted Tuesday about being only two pounds over the 168-pound limit after a big breakfast and just eating lunch. “Johnson is perfect for me. He’s made for me. He’ll be right there, right in front of me.

“The winner of this fight is going to the Final of the best boxing tournament in the world, the Super Six World Boxing Classic. And the winner is going to be me. I heard Johnson’s team talking about an easy fight. They can think what they want. I’m not concerned with that rubbish.”
