Let’s talk about Carl Froch’s nose


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

Carl Froch is known for three things, as far as I’m concerned: being one of the best super middleweight boxers in history, Rachael Cordingley, and his jacked up beak of a nose, which was a real fighter’s nose, had a lot of character.

That nose is no more. Carl Froch has had cosmetic surgery to give himself a new lease on life, at least as far as his nose goes. Here is Froch on Sky Sports:

Obviously, the internet has reacted as the internet will, up to and including me. Carl Froch now looks like a low-level politician, whatever the UK equivalent to a county commissioner would be.

Now, listen, I’m not saying he looks bad -- conventionally, he’s probably more handsome now than he was before. But, I mean, with that busted up honker he had before, he was doing alright for himself.

What is this world coming to when Carl Froch is gussying himself up? Have we all lost perspective? This is a man famous for being punched in the nose, and punching noses. Has society made him feel as though he needs a perfect nose? Did he just want it himself? IS IT SO WRONG TO BE BEAUTIFUL?
