CARL FROCH branded Jake Paul a "clown" and said it is "disgusting" he is considered a professional boxer.
Froch appeared on his old rival George Groves' podcast and was on the end of some trolling by his ex-opponent.
The former world champion was asked to name when YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul faced Ben Askren, Nate Robinson and Anderson Silva.
But Froch, 45, responded: "Jake Paul is a clown, such a f****** idiot. What a ponce. He's not even a fighter.
"He shouldn't even be on this list. You have disgraced this list by putting his name on it.
"It is disgusting you have put him on this list of boxers."

Paul knocked out retired MMA welterweight Askren, 38, ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 38, and former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 40.
And in October he scored the biggest win of his career by beating UFC legend Anderson Silva, 47, who also had a 4-1 record in the ring.
But before the bout, Froch – who retired in 2014 after knocking out Groves – took another swipe at Paul, 25.
He told William Hill: "Jake Paul can’t fight, he’s pretending, he’s conning people.

"He’s got his audience, I don’t begrudge him – he’s making money and doing what he’s doing. But he’s not a professional boxer.
"He knows not to come anywhere near me. He’s bigger than me, he’s 14 stone, he’s younger than me, he’s fresher, he thinks he can fight.
"I wouldn’t even train for this guy, I’d do a little bit of training.
"I might do the odd little run to get the heart beating, but I’d take Jake Paul to school and hammer him.
