Carl Froch adds ITV’s ‘Tipping Point’ appearance to BBC’s ‘Tumble’

Phil Jay 10/07/2014

Capitalizing on his enhanced fame due to his explosive win over George Groves at Wembley, super-middleweight world champion Carl Froch will appear on the small screen once again this weekend.

WBA and IBF title holder Froch is to participate in ITV’s ‘Tipping Point: Lucky Stars’ on Saturday night as the Nottingham fighter aims to raise money for a hospital in his own locality.

The 37 year-old is in the midst of a TV offensive since over the last twelve months after originally re-announcing himself on the world stage in 2012 against Lucian Bute – having already taken part in ITV’s ‘Stepping Out’ prior to his first clash with George Groves.

Two punishing victories over Groves have elevated Froch to a new level as a personality in his own country and the three-time world title holder is set to capitalised on his popularity further in the coming months.

Froch’s ‘Tipping Point’ challenge will be followed by a stint on the BBC’s recently-announced ‘Tumble’ programme, which sees celebrities try their hand at gymnastics over a series of weeks. ‘The Cobra’ will be donning lycra to attempt difficult routines later in the autumn, which is a far cry from swapping punches with the best boxers in the world.

Tune in to ITV at 7.30pm on Saturday night to witness Froch try to raise money for Nottingham Hospitals Charity in his bid to help renovate their cancer and neuroscience wards.
