Carl Froch Believes The World Is Flat And NASA Is Fake
Sure, boxers are known for making outlandish statements, but even by those standards this is a spicy hot take.
The former world super-middleweight champion claims that he doesn't believe that the world is a globe and won't believe it until 'someone like Richard Branson' launches a mission into space to prove that the earth is round.
Exactly why someone like Richard Branson is more believable than the evidence of science and other world space agencies isn't immediately clear, but whatever Carl.
You do you.
Speaking of which, he also accused NASA of releasing pictures of space that are 'like cartoons'.
The 42-year-old boxer turned commentator told the Daily Star: "The Earth is flat, 100 percent.
"There's no proof of the Earth's curvature and this fake space agency NASA use CGI images and every one is different. I'm looking at them thinking, 'Hang on a minute, they're like cartoons.'
"When someone like Richard Branson goes up there and starts doing chartered flights... and you can look back on Earth and see the Earth's curvature, I'll believe the Earth is a globe."

Despite the fact that we can safely assume science isn't Carl's strong suit, that also suggests that maths isn't either.
After all, agreeing to be proven wrong isn't exactly a 100 percent chance that the earth is flat, is it?
Anyway, this isn't the first time that the form WBC and IBF champ has voiced his concerns about what we're taught to believe in school about the earth and space.
In fact, in an interview with the Daily Express in 2018, he said that he believes that the 1969 moon landings didn't actually happen.
Intriguingly enough, he made these comments with reference to a potential heavyweight fight between Anthony Joshua and David Haye.
Froch said: "Apparently, we've been to the moon in 1969, 1970. We've been there six times - I don't believe a word of it. Some people do."
He then added: "Some people do believe it though and to me, that is a miracle.
"If David Haye says that he can go to the moon and rewind the clock and do it all again - for his own sake, I hope he can."
Right, that all checks out then.
