Carl Froch has done it again, as the British superstar has been named the BBBofC's Boxer of the Year for a fourth time.

The British Boxing Board of Control has awarded Carl Froch its Boxer of the Year award for the fourth time overall and the third year in a row, honoring WBA and IBF super middleweight titlist for his two wins over George Groves in the last year.

Froch's slightly controversial stoppage of Groves in November 2013 was followed by a May 31 knockout of George Groves in their highly-anticipated rematch at Wembley Stadium, which did massive business. That was enough to rightly earn him the award once again. The 37-year-old champion also won the award in 2009, 2012, and 2013.

Froch (33-2, 24 KO) is currently planning a January 31 return to action, where he may face James DeGale at London's O2 Arena. A third fight with Mikkel Kessler has also been mentioned as a possibility.

Sergey Kovalev won Overseas Boxer of the Year for his destructive win over Nathan Cleverly in August 2013, and Anthony Crolla and John Murray won the Sportsmanship Award for their thrilling April 2014 clash in Manchester.
