CARL FROCH threatened to send Jake Paul “into f***ing orbit” in a brutal response to being called out by the American.
And the Cobra could not resist taking the perfect opportunity to deliver his famous catchphrase – much to fans’ delight.

Paul, 26, takes on Tommy Fury in their long-awaited boxing showdown this weekend in Saudi Arabia.
Paul, who has won his six pro boxing fights against amateurs, tweeted: “Carl Froch mad because I made more in one year than he made his whole career.
“You want the payday. I get it.
“So let’s do this, fight Anderson Silva on my next card and if you get lucky and beat him, then we can step in the ring and you make your career payday. Let me know.”
But Froch, 45, was having none of it.
The 33-2 fighter responded with a video on Twitter – and of course mentioned his little-known secret about selling out the national stadium.
Froch said: “So, Jake Paul has called me out on his social media. Apparently he wants to fight me.

“Just in case you didn’t know, my last fight was at Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 fans.
“I won’t be fighting the mixed martial arts legend Anderson Silva on your undercard. I’ve got too much respect for him. And your punch when you boxed him, did that even land? Very dubious.
“You’ve got a job to do against Tommy Fury. If by some miracle you manage to beat Tommy Fury, then I’ll listen to you.
“I’ll have a little chat with you and see what garbage comes out of your mouth. See what you’ve got to say.
“But until then, don’t talk about me in the same league as you. I’m a four-time world champion. Two WBC titles there. You’ll never, ever have one of them.
“You’re not good enough. You’re not a professional fighter. You’re a performing clown. That’s all you are.
‘LOVE THE WEEKLY UPDATES’
“So keep my name out of your mouth until you’ve done something in the game. I think this weekend, your world ends.
“But if it doesn’t, and you are stupid enough to take a fight with me, when this right hand lands on your chin, it will put you into f***ing orbit and knock that stupid barnet off the top of your head.”
And fans on social media could not get enough of the Nottingham ace’s defiant message – with all the focus on THAT George Groves fight comment.
One said: “I think he’s trolling us now about the 80k at Wembley, any opportunity to throw that in the mix.”
Another wrote: “Took bro ten whole seconds to mention Wembley in front of 80k, f***ing love this guy.”
A third added: “Cheers @Carl_Froch for reminding us all of that night at Wembley I love the weekly updates but be good to see you both in the ring could be easy money for you.”
And a final user joked: “Does anyone know roughly how many people were at Wembley for @Carl_Froch’s last fight? The guy never talks about it enough.”
