Joe Calzaghe has launched a fresh attack on current WBC Super Middleweight champion Carl Froch.

Calzaghe retired with an unbeaten record of 46-0, his last fight being against Roy Jones Jnr in November 2008, and it has irked Froch that he failed to persuade the Welshman to face him in the ring.

Calzaghe has been in the spotlight for a number of out-of-ring activities of late, namely a failed attempt to win Strictly Come Dancing and spells modelling, but he has kept his eye on the boxing scene.

Although resisting calls to come out of retirement, Calzaghe has reignited his war of words with Froch.

"He won a title that I gave up and hasn't stopped bitching about everybody," Calzaghe told City AM. "Because he's not making as much money and not getting on TV I think he's bitter against the whole world.

"He's like a spoilt little bloody bitch. I don't mind saying that either, that's okay, keep that in there. He'll like that one."
