East Mids lad is new world champ...

Britain has a new world champ.

Well done Carl Froch from Nottingham who has just become World Super Middleweight Champion after 12 classic and thrilling rounds against courageous French Canadian boxer Jean Pascal.

Pascal was undefeated until he was struck by 'Carl the Cobra' tonight. Froch won in a unanimous decision for the world title left vacant by Welshman Joe Calzaghee.

Geoffey,

thanks for the excellent news...

Martin Woolfie Adams actually lives in my own village of Deeping St James in Lincolnshire in the East Midlands...

It always annoys me when the local media say Woolfie is from Market Deeping...

Anyway, good arras Woolfie!!
