Former boxing champion Carl Froch has expressed his interest in fighting Conor McGregor in the octagon.

During an interview on his YouTube channel, Froch said that neither McGregor nor Jake Paul can box, and that he is too big and strong for both of them.

Froch claimed he would only need one arm to beat Paul, but would train harder for McGregor in the cage.

However, he acknowledged that he might be getting himself into a difficult position. McGregor has responded to Froch's comments, stating that he is open to the challenge.

McGregor and Froch have clashed in the past, with McGregor tweeting that he would twist Froch's head off, leading to a series of responses from Froch.

While McGregor never responded to Froch's boxing-related comments, he has responded to the suggestion of a fight in the octagon.

Both fighters are currently occupied with other commitments, with McGregor preparing for his UFC return after a two-year injury layoff and Froch set to be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame later this year.

Froch is a former WBC, IBF, and WBA super-middleweight champion in boxing. McGregor is a former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion.

Jake Paul, on the other hand, is an internet personality who has recently taken up boxing professionally. 

McGregor and Paul have been involved in a war of words recently, with Paul offering McGregor $50 million to fight him. However, McGregor has yet to respond to Paul's offer.
