The absolute world champion in the first heavyweight Ukrainian Alexander Usik flew to the United Kingdom for a fight with Briton Tony Bellew.
Froch said: Whatever is happening early on, if you're getting out-jabbed, if you can not get to him, don't forget it's a 12-round fight.
I was retired after the second Haye fight.
But a bold prediction would be for Usyk to make a statement, landing at will from the early goings, dropping Bellew on several occasions before the contest is halted inside 4 rounds. But all fighters have vulnerabilities and I have to expose his.
The "Rickster" still harbors dreams of fighting for world titles again and a rematch with Manchester favorite Crolla is top of a list of fights he wants as he prepares to write new chapters in his fantastic journey.
You must rewire your defensive capabilities, with different angles, changing your defensive patterns, movements and counter-punching. I am not going to speak too much because the one who speaks a lot does little.More news: Top US general's remarks spark debate over fate of USFK

With retirement looming for the 35-year-old, Froch believes the former WBC champion will have pushed his body to the limit during his last camp with trainer David Coldwell. He's fought at 175lbs for most of his career and he's a very experienced fighter.
Bellew knows that he will have to bring his best performance. But Tony will be going into this fight with confidence, he riding high off his recent victories and he's going to feel invincible stepping into the ring.
Bellew, who has stated this will be his final fight regardless of the result, famously defeated former Heavyweight world champion David Haye via stoppage on both occasions and has tasted defeat just twice in a glittering 11-year career against Nathan Cleverly and Adonis Stephenson. Just as the fight is billed - he who dares.
"I love that about him, but I would like it if he wins".
The semi-final was close, but the final was far from it. WBA and IBF title-holder Murat Gassiev was utterly outclassed in all 12 rounds earlier this year.
