Forest fan Froch targets greatness

In the early hours of Sunday morning, after his beloved Nottingham Forest take on Newcastle live on Sky, Carl Froch will defend his WBC super-middleweight title against Andre Dirrell at the Trent FM Arena, returning home after a stunning win over Jermain Taylor in America in April.

"I think home support helps in a massive way," said Froch, speaking to BBC East Midlands Today.

"I boxed Jean Pascal at the Nottingham Arena for my world title fight - and the crowd really lifted me, they really did."
