World Champ Carl Froch Would Rather Play Bingo!

For most of us, it is hard to imagine a champion boxer at the local bingo hall. In a recent article, British World Champion boxer Carl Froch revealed that he would rather be playing bingo with his mother than attending the many gala events he is often invited to attend. Carl Froch is the current WBC super middleweight world champion and has an impressive record of 20-0. (20KO) Froch admits he finds it difficult to come to terms with his newfound celebrity status.

Froch’s bingo hall of choice is the Top Spot in Nottingham where he can be found playing his favorite game with his mother. When he is not playing bingo he is busy building up his impressive record as a champion. He recently defended his title against Jermain Taylor but for some reason television coverage of the event was sadly lacking in the UK. Froch is hoping his next fight will take place closer to home.

Froch sees himself as a ‘regular guy’ and is somewhat uncomfortable with his celebrity status. Says Frock, “Since the Taylor fight, I’ve been invited to a few red-carpet dos, I get some serious attention. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve got a beautiful girl on my arm or because I’m world champion. I’m not big on the celebrity thing. I’m a grounded individual – I still go to bingo at The Top Spot in Nottingham on a Sunday night with my mum. I love it!”

Celebrities are not uncommon in bingo halls or online bingo sites these days. Sharon Osbourne, wife of rocker, Ozzy Osbourne, is a true bingo fanatic with her own online bingo game website. Actress and television presenter Denise Van Outen is fond of bingo and frequents several bingo halls. Bingo is no longer a game for little old ladies—just ask Carl Froch!
