Carl Froch calls Campbell Hatton’s fight 'erotic' leaving Laura Woods desperately trying not to laugh on live TV

LAURA WOODS was forced to bite her lip to stop herself bursting out in laughter live on air after a fabulous slip of the tongue by Carl Froch.

The presenter and former world champion were providing the coverage for the event that was headlined by Conor Benn’s win over Chris Van Heerden. 


On the undercard to that, Ricky Hatton’s son Campbell stretched his unbeaten record as a pro to 7-0 with a points victory over Ezequiel Gregores.

And it was after that fight when the hilarious moment occurred as Froch gave his assessment on DAZN.

On Hatton, he said: “He’s taking his time a little bit more, and that looks kind of erotic at times…”

Woods instantly picked up on Froch’s mistake or pronouncing “erotic” rather than “erratic”, as the camera caught her biting her lip as she struggled to keep control.

Despite cruising to a seventh-successive win, Froch offered some words of advice for 21-year-old Hatton.

He said: “He didn't have any respect for any of the punches coming back because they had no power.

“You can allow him that mistake if you like. He's keen and eager to get his shots off; he wants to impress and he wants to put that Ricky Hatton performance in which [featured] a ferocious pace.

“But you need a big engine for that and a big heart and you need to be able to go through the gears which is what Ricky Hatton did.

“[Campbell's] headwork and footwork is limited because of his lack of amateur experience; he's a raw novice.

“I don't want to put him down and rip him apart but he's got to realise…”

Froch added: “People in the boxing game know he's learning on the job and he's making up for the time lost in the amateurs.

“He needs to enjoy himself and learn while he's progressing; you cant chuck him in too deep.”
