Nottingham’s boxing world champion Carl Froch will be made Honorary Freeman of the City at a special event at the Royal Concert Hall.
Entitled an An Evening with Carl Froch, the event will be taking place on Thursday at 6pm and begins with the official Freeman of the City ceremony.
The 37-year-old, who was born in Colwick, Nottingham, will join a host of illustrious figures such as Brian Clough and Torvill and Dean in receiving the title.
The accolade is awarded solely to a ‘person of distinction who has rendered eminent service to the City’.
Froch is currently the IBF super middleweight champion and is the first Nottingham sportsperson to be awarded the accolade while still being active as a professional.
The evening will also feature a celebration of Froch’s life and career and a Q&A session with the man himself.
To commemorate the occasion, a tram will be named after the boxer and a cardboard cut-out of Froch will be popping up in the Victoria Centre and the rail station for fans to take selfies with.
