Former four-time  world champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KOs) has announced his retirement from professional boxing.

Froch, 38, won the WBC, WBA and IBF super-middleweight titles and hangs up his gloves after a career filled with significant victories against the likes of Jean Pascal, Jermain Taylor, Andre Dirrell, Arthur Abraham, Lucian Bute, Mikkel Kessler and George Groves.

In his final fight, the Nottingham man knocked out Groves in front of 80,000 at Wembley Stadium in May 2014.

"I'm incredibly proud of what I have achieved in boxing, but now is the right moment to hang up my gloves," said Froch. "I have nothing left to prove, and my legacy speaks for itself."

Froch, nicknamed "The Cobra," will now join Sky Sports as an analyst.
