Combat sports enthusiasts are looking forward to seeing a rematch between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley. Many fans were not happy when Paul defeated Woodley via split decision. Hence, a rematch will be a great way to decide which athlete is the better between the two. UFC fighter Darren Till too seems interested in seeing how this match pans out.

Till said, “I’d absolutely punch Carl Froch.”

Till further said, “F**k Carl Froch… I would strangle the c*** out”.

The UFC fighter also spoke about his two back-to-back losses against Robert Whittaker and then Derek Brunson. Back in 2019, he also faced Jorge Masvidal and Tyron Woodley. Till unfortunately lost bouts against these four great fighters. However, he is determined to make a name for himself in combat sports, whether it is boxing or MMA. He is confident about his boxing skills and is of the opinion that he can defeat Froch.

While the boxing match between Till and Froch was just a suggestion by a fan, it seems like the UFC fighter has given it some thought. With other MMA fighters like Conor McGregor and Tyron Woodley dabbling into boxing, Till might have taken some inspiration.

Froch had retired a while back but seems interested in a comeback. Hence, Till might have a chance to face the boxer.
