<p>Ebury Press has acquired the rights for the autobiography of super-middleweight boxing champion, Carl Froch.</p><p>Andrew Goodfellow, senior publishing director at Ebury Press bought world rights directly from Froch. The book, provisionally titled <em>The Cobra</em>, will be published in July this year. It will tell of how Froch was brought up on a Nottingham estate and got into boxing at the age of nine, then as a teenager he went off the rails.</p><p>He has since become Britain&rsquo;s world champion boxer at super-middleweight, unbeaten in 26 fights. He is also one win into the new Super Six Boxing Classic - a series which pits the best six fighters in the world against each other in a round-robin tournament to be fought over the next year and a half.</p><p>Goodfellow said: &quot;Carl is complete one-off, he has a thrilling confrontational style in the ring and has always walked his own path outside it. His fanatical hometown following will ensure this is a success, but his ever growing profile &ndash; he really is the British boxer to watch this year - and the amazing back story he has to tell will mean that this has a real chance of being so much more.&quot;<br /><br />Ebury Press previously published boxer Ricky Hatton&#39;s autobiography, <em>The Hitman: My Story</em>.</p>
