The Nottingham fighter is renowned for never backing away from punishing bouts and will tonight defend his IBF belt against Yusaf Mack in his home city.
Many wonder how the 35-year-old continually manages to rise to the occasion against top-level opponents, having taken fights against the likes of Jermain Taylor, Andre Dirrell, Mikkel Kessler, Andre Ward and Lucian Bute over recent years.
But, according to Froch himself, he has plenty left in the tank.
"It's two fights a year, so that's not the end of the world, and I don't take many punches," he said.
"I live cleanly between fights. It's how you abuse or treat your body between fights that determines your longevity. I'm a clean liver, a consummate professional, I don't eat rubbish food, I don't drink and I don't smoke.
"Physically I was a late developer and I feel like a young 35. I feel in my prime, at my peak and as long as I have the desire to train in the gym, there's no reason why I can't go on until I'm 39, 40 years old.
"I'm not saying I want to, but physically I think I'm going to be able to."
Should Froch see off Mack tonight - something he is expected to do - a mouthwatering 2013 lies ahead.
Rematches with the only two men to have beaten him over his 31-fight career - Kessler and Ward - as well as one with Bute are all on the cards and promoter Eddie Hearn has spoken of his excitement at putting those shows together.
Froch, though, knows he cannot afford to spend too much time looking beyond tonight.
"I went through one of the biggest tournaments in the world (Super Six) where I knew who I was fighting for the next five fights, so you've always got your eye on your next opponent, but you can't take someone like Yusaf Mack for granted," he said.
"I am looking at the future, but that's nothing new for me. I was in the amateur game for many years, boxed at the top level and had a massive pedigree.
"I've been a professional for 10 years and nothing is going to faze me. I'm not going to be complacent or lackadaisical to take my eye off Yusaf Mack. I know I've got a job to do and I know that job could be a difficult one."
Mack has had little to say in the build-up, apart from a barbed comment which likened Froch to a "fake Joe Calzaghe".
The insult has at least added some spice to an occasion which could fail, in shock and awe terms at least, to match his fifth-round technical knockout of Bute in May.
"I'll just do what I do," Froch said, unworried.
"The crowd are already turning up, we've got a packed arena and obviously, Lucian Bute is a different opponent. He was an unbeaten fighter and I was the underdog and I shocked the world that night.
"People know what to expect and I'm expecting a fantastic night."
