Froch claims to be the best of British super-middleweights

Carl Froch believes becoming a three-time World Champion by stopping Lucian Bute to win IBF super-middleweight title means his "achievements have far eclipsed" those of fellow British super-middleweight greats Joe Calzaghe, Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn.

Talking to BBC Sport's Ben Dirs, Froch states he has "gone past and superseeded" their achievements but, despite his claim, Froch was keen to stress he did not necessarily think he was a better fighter than any of the above, adding he still has a picture of Eubank on his bedroom wall.
