Carl Froch
Carl Froch stands in Damon's way

Froch floors Hague

Super middleweight Carl Froch floored Damon Hague in round one to win the British title.


Damon Hague left the Nottingham Ice Arena a disappointed man last night after losing his latest title bout, for the British and Commonwealth Super Middleweight title, against Carl Froch.

Spectators may well have been disappointed too, as the bout lasted only a shade over three minutes.

Froch looked the more confident and relaxed from the bell – almost too relaxed at times – and he allowed Hague to chase him around the ring for the opening period. Froch threw little in the way of punches himself.

'Suspect'?
Damon Hague

Midway through the first round Hague was on the deck – a slip sent him tumbling. But moments later is was a short, sharp right hander that send him crashing as Hague ducked onto Froch’s glove.

Hague took a count of seven but it was almost not worth his while getting to his feet.

Seconds later, Froch hit Hague with a right hander to his face followed by a right hook which caught him broadside.

Hague hit the canvass for the third time.

He was soon back on his feet but it was obvious his legs had gone. The referee decided the Derby man was not fit to defend himself and stopped the fight after three minutes and 10 seconds.
