The Nottingham boxer gets plenty of abuse from the Twitterati.
In one of the most highly anticipated boxing matches of the year, IBF and WBA world champion Carl Froch controversially beat George Groves after the referee stopped the fight.
Howard Foster decided that challenger Groves was taking too much of a beating by Froch, despite having the better of the fight and knocking the veteran down in the first round.
The decision sparked much controversy, with Groves noticeably upset by the call and the crowd at the Phones4U Arena in Manchester letting their feelings be known with a barrage of boos.
It was no different on Twitter, where fans, sportsmen and celebrities expressed their opinions on the unpopular call from Foster.
Not been a great day for referees in either football or boxing, judging by the reaction to the Froch decision.

Celebrate our champions. Nothing wrong with being the best. Only losers resent winners. Froch is the champion. Should be respected more.

Last night, Carl Froch said he couldn’t remember being put down in the first. Today he recalls he was fine and got straight up. #LIAR

Froch fight was not a farce or fiasco as some papers have it. It was a memorable fight with a contentious finish. Part of the drama.

Still can’t believe how the Froch fight ended. Absolute shocker. Amazing battle ruined at the last turn. Shame.

Whatever is said about the result, not many can complain that the fight wasn’t dramatic and a spectacular event, with a rematch between Froch and Groves seemingly the only resolution.
