Carl Froch demands Anthony Joshua meet him face-to-face after leaking more 'abusive' WhatsApp messages

Carl Froch demands Anthony Joshua meet him face-to-face after leaking more 'abusive' WhatsApp messages

Carl Froch has called out Anthony Joshua after sharing WhatsApp messages with one another.

Carl Froch has demanded Anthony Joshua meet him in person after leaking further WhatsApp messages exchanged.

Froch and Joshua used to train together when both were being coached by Rob McCracken.

But three years on from AJ splitting with McCracken, the two have been embroiled in a bitter spat.

Last week, Froch took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to leak texts between them.

He asked Joshua about calling him a "pr***" in an interview, to which the former world heavyweight champion explained he did not like Froch.

'The Cobra' shared the messages on X and YouTube, as well as a video where Joshua appeared to show off a series of £20 notes.

Froch has now doubled down on the jabs, claiming that Joshua has deleted four new messages and branding his antics "pathetic" and "childish".

"I’ve shared 10 per cent of the messages," he told BestOnlinePokerSites.

"I mean, it’s schoolboy stuff. It’s like plastic gangsters. It’s pathetic really, it’s childish and it’s a bit ridiculous.

"I think he’ll be cringing to himself at that.

"I’ve shared it because why should I be abused by somebody in this position and be called that name?

"I’ve kept 90 per cent of what he’s said away.

"He’s messaged me again, overnight, and deleted four of the messages."

Froch didn't stop there, however, calling for Joshua to meet up in person to iron out their issues and accusing him of ducking his phone calls.

“I’ve had a barrage of abuse directed to me, but I don’t mind meeting up and dealing with it like men," Froch continued.

"Because if you’re going to do little backstab jibes and send me messages abusing me.

"And then deleting stuff, and then you don’t pick your phone up when I try to give you a call to have a conversation with you man to man.

"Then what am I going to do? I’m going to expose you for what you are.”

Joshua returns to the ring on 21 September when he takes on Daniel Dubois for the newly vacated IBF heavyweight title at Wembley Stadium.
