Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

In an announcement published first by Livefight.com, Carl Froch has revealed that he's left promoter Mick Hennessy and his Hennessy Sports stable to promote himself.

"I'm no longer working with my representative Mick Hennessy," confirmed Froch.

"My next two fights are already mapped out within the Super Six tournament. I am just soley concentrating right now on beating the likes of Glencoffe Johnson and hopefully Andre Ward."

Froch (27-1, 20 KO) faces Johnson (51-14-2, 35 KO) on June 4 in Atlantic City. Despite his rise into position as one of the very elite fighters in the UK and in the super middleweight division, Froch has had a horrible time getting fights televised in his home country, being relegated to second-tier networks instead of Sky Sports. In most respects, it's probably no surprise that he's decided to leave the Hennessy stable.

Froch also says he'll be ringside at the Pacquiao-Mosley fight on May 7, as Showtime is looking to promote the Super Six that night in front of the biggest possible audience.
