Boxing legend Carl Froch doubles down on theory that the earth is flat

Boxing legend Carl Froch doubles down on theory that the earth is flat

The 45-year-old is adamant there is "no proof" of the Earth's curvature.

Carl Froch has challenged people to prove that the Earth is spherical.

The 45-year-old former Super Middleweight world champion made some bold comments on the shape of the earth back in 2019. In fact, he also questioned the legitimacy of space agency Nasa.

Speaking on the Pound for Pound podcast with Jake Wood and Spencer Oliver podcast, he said: "The Earth is flat, 100 per cent.

"There's no proof of the Earth's curvature and this fake space agency Nasa use CGI images and every one is different. I'm looking at them thinking, 'Hang on a minute, they're like cartoons'.

"When someone like Richard Branson goes up there and starts doing chartered flights... and you can look back on Earth and see the Earth's curvature, I'll believe the Earth is a globe."

So there we have it. Froch has questions over the Earth's shape and thinks Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's landing on the moon in July 1969 from the Apollo 11 spaceflight was fake.

And now, four years after making the above comments. he doubled down on his theory when he was prodded about his previous statements by former British-Irish professional boxer Matthew Macklin.

Speaking on Macklin's Take Boxing podcast, he said: "Here's the problem. I've tried to prove - and I challenge anybody listening to this - prove that the Earth is spherical. Prove that it's round. Prove that it's actually a globe."

Macklin challenged Froch on his theory, saying: "All I know is that when Michael Conlan was boxing in Brisbane, we left LA and flew west and 12 hours later we were in Brisbane. So I don't see how the world can possibly be flat."

But the former Super Middleweight world champion didn't back down.

Froch added: "I could get a piece of A4 paper, write down the centre of the flat Earth - which is the North Pole - and write down the ice wall - which is right down the south side - all the way around the circumference of the flat Earth, and you would circumnavigate and you'd get from where you just said [LA] to where you just said [Brisbane] in the same flight path."

Here's how social media reacted to Froch's latest podcast comments.

One fan said: "So there's no south pole? What's the craic with the equator too?" while another wrote: "His second most ridiculous take after suggesting he would beat Joe Calzaghe."

A third added: "1.Lunar eclipses don't only happen at midnight. 2. Different parts of the earth experience different season at the same time. 3. Visible stars are different in different locations."
