Carl Froch has revealed his promoter Eddie Hearn has already contacted American television company HBO over a potential fight with Julio Chavez Jr in Las Vegas.

Froch defends his super-middleweight world titles against George Groves on November 23, but admitted a fight with Chavez Jr may hit a stumbling block, with HBO preferring 'The Cobra' to face unbeaten world champion Gennady Golovkin.

"It's not pie in the sky. It's potentially one of the biggest fights to happen in the last decade," Froch told The Sun.

"I'm told my promoter Eddie Hearn has already spoken to the American TV company HBO about a big fight against Chavez Jnr.

"But, from what I understand, HBO are more interested to see me in against Golovkin because there are not too many willing to fight him.

"Sure, Golovkin is frightening but I fear no man. It would be an unbelievable super-fight that would get everybody excited - him or Chavez Jr."

Golovkin defends his WBA title against Curtis Stevens on November 2, while Chavez Jr recently defeated Brian Vera by unanimous decision in California.
