Carl Froch Hoping To KO Domestic Violence

Boxing Scene Terry Dooley9th July, 2009

Carl Froch has joined forces with his girlfriend Rachael Cordingley in order to increase awareness of domestic violence. Froch has been appointed as an ambassador for the White Ribbon charity in Liverpool, Cordingley's hometown.

WBC super-middleweight champ Froch is well-known for his tough talk and fierce ring style, but he showed a softer edge to his personality when talking to the Liverpool Echo about his new role.

"White Ribbon is such a worthwhile charity," he said. "I'm glad as a man I am able to lend my support and help raise awareness of the cause." White Ribbon seeks to bring a greater awareness and understanding to the issues, and ignorance, surrounding domestic violence.

Froch, who often jokes about "Smoking the boots" of his opponents, will be lending his full support to this worthwhile cause.
