Carl Froch has taken yet another swipe at UFC superstar Conor McGregor by mocking his recent training footage.
The Irishman is currently training as he looks to return to the octagon following last year’s defeat to Dustin Poirier.
In an interview early this year, Frosh said that McGregor “couldn’t punch the skin off a rice pudding.”

McGregor responded as he referred to the quote whilst Froch was working the broadcast for Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.
Both men have since gone back and forth on Twitter and reignited a row on social media.
In McGregor’s recent video, Froch posted: “Couldn’t punch the skin off a rice pudding!”
The comment was the same comment that rattled the Irishman earlier this month, with McGregor responding the first time: “That Froch tick, little scrawny pencil neck… I’ll grab his head and twist it clean off at a oner with my bare hands. Little wally of a thing. I’ll slap you around you little toffee nose tosspot.”
On the same day, Froch tweeted: “Who is this mouthy little pr*** talking to? I will drag you outside with that wispy beard & show you how the big boys do it!!”
‘The Notorious’ one has made a name for himself in the ring over the years and has transformed the sport.
The feud started following Froch’s interview with Joe.co.uk, where he discussed the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.
Froch then rubbished Conor’s punching power following the Irishman’s fight with Floyd Mayweather.
“McGregor can’t punch, he couldn’t knock the skin off a rice pudding,” Froch said. “I was there when he fought Floyd Mayweather – Conor McGregor is a big name because he’s got the mouth and he’s got the charisma.
“I’m just sort of getting into mixed martial arts now, my knowledge isn’t [great]. I watch a fight and I won’t know who I’m watching but I have to watch it back again. It gets brutal in there at times and I’ve got a lot of respect for these fighters.
“We wear gloves in boxing, 10oz gloves, and they wear little hand mitts. Alright, they’re not massive punchers, some of them can punch, don’t get me wrong, but they kick you in the face. They knee you in the head and do these spinning kicks.
“Then they get you on the floor, get you down there and f*** you up. They mess you up. They get you in some headlock and your arm. I admire these guys and I respect them.”
Do you think we could see a potential fight between Froch and McGregor brewing?
