FORMER WBA super-middleweight champion Carl Froch has revealed he’s open to coming out of retirement to box Jake and Logan Paul.
The YouTubers have taken the boxing world by storm with their brash antics and callouts on social media.

But not everybody has taken kindly to their cringe-worthy videos, including Froch.
When asked about potentially facing Jake, Froch told iFL TV: “I wish he’d call me out. Easy money.
“All them YouTubers are easy money, let’s be honest. Come on, they can’t fight, they’re swinging handbags.
“Unless they wanna call me out and I’ll go and smash them all to bits.”
Jake, 24, made headlines last November with a viral KO of ex-NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson’s exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr.
The former Disney actor then went on a relentless campaign to box UFC superstar Conor McGregor, who he claimed to have sent a whopping £35million offer.
That alleged offer amused Froch, who said: “$50million, what are you gonna do with that?
“Put it in the bank and watch it just go to the taxman and let it get diluted, it’s of no use.
“And, it’s risk/reward.
“Even though I think it’s an easy fight with one of them YouTubers, you’ve still got a chance of getting hurt.

“So at 43 years old, to answer your question, I wouldn’t be fighting anybody for any amount of money, including £50million.”
After reassessing the size of a £50million bout with Paul, The Cobra quickly changed his tune.
He said: “Yeah, I’d probably fight him actually. I’d probably fight him for £50million actually.”
Jake, the younger of the Paul brothers, is gearing up for a boxing match with former UFC welterweight Ben Askren, whom he’ll face on April 17.
Logan, meanwhile, is set to face former four-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather later this year.
The pair were scheduled to throw down last month but their meeting ended up being postponed.
