Tyson Fury's Instagram DMs with Carl Froch LEAKED amid row over 'dead rabbit' Francis Ngannou fight | The Sun
CARL FROCH has leaked private Instagram messages with Tyson Fury following the announcement of his fight with Francis Ngannou.
Fury faces the ex-UFC champion in a massive crossover clash on October 28 in Saudi Arabia.
But former boxing star Froch has been outspoken about the bout, which comes six years after Floyd Mayweather beat MMA icon Conor McGregor.
So much so that Fury felt the need to defend the mega-money fight in the Middle East when direct messaging Froch on Instagram.
He said: “The biggest fight in the world moosh. The richest heavyweight fight in history. Carl, don’t hate the player, hate the game.”
Froch, revealing the exchange on his YouTube channel, replied: “I doubt that! You v Usyk is far bigger. Anyway, not hating."

Fury's promoter Frank Warren teased the fight for months after claiming it was a "game changer".
But Froch ranted about Fury's spectacle showdown and urged promoter Frank Warren to instead agree a deal with Usyk or Anthony Joshua.
He said: "The 'game changer' the big game changer, what's his name? Ngannou. Tyson Fury against Francis Ngannou, so a crossove fight boxing and MMA.
"Been there, seen it, heard it all before. See it with Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, it's a load of rubbish.
