“Wonder if it upsets him that Khan made more money"
Faryal Makhdoom aimed a jibe at “rude and annoying” Carl Froch, mocking his career earnings.
Her comment came following her husband Amir Khan’s loss to rival Kell Brook.
The bout was a thrilling one, with Brook stopping Khan in the sixth round.
Former world champion boxer Carl Froch was working as a pundit for Sky Sports during the event and was critical of Khan after his loss.
In an assessment of the bout, Froch said Khan’s “legs turned to Bambi” and that he was “badly hurt”.
Froch then urged Khan to retire, adding that “it’s not healthy getting punched in the head”.
His comments did not sit well with Faryal Makhdoom, who hit back at Froch on Twitter.
She tweeted: “I rarely ever say bad about anyone but I actually can’t stand Carl Froch. Simply rude and annoying.
“Wonder if it upsets him that Khan made more money than him.”

A lot of Faryal’s followers sided with her.
One said: “Froch should never have been working as an analyst.
“The Bambi leg comment on SKY was completely out of order. Shows his bias and hatred for Khan.
“Most analysts would be praising a fighter’s career.”
Another said: “He has always hated Amir Khan because of Amir’s popularity and success in and out of the ring.”
But some criticised Faryal for her comment being money-related.
One argued: “Life isn’t money. Does your life just consist of thinking and judging people by what they have? Wow.”
Another commented: “Unlike your man, not all fighters equate success in the ring with how much they earned.”
It was reported that Amir Khan increased his net worth to approximately £35 million after earning a significant purse for his bout against Kell Brook.
Meanwhile, Carl Froch previously suggested that his approximate net worth of £15 million is “accurate”.
Faryal also fuelled speculation that her husband will retire soon.
She had said: “Thank you King Khan for all the excitement you brought to the sport of boxing.
“Without you, British boxing wouldn’t be the same. You inspire us all.”
After his devastating defeat, Khan hinted at retirement.
He said: “I need to sit down with my family, but it is more towards the end of my career.
“The love of the sport isn’t there anymore. That is a sign for me that I should maybe be calling it a day.
“No disrespect to Kell, he put on a great performance today and he came out to win.
“No excuses the better man won and he boxed out of his skin I have to say. I didn’t expect that from him, especially from the fights I have seen before.
“At the end of the day we have rivalries but as I say after I punch them we can be friends. He put a great performance on and did everything he needed to.
“He was the best man tonight. I had a great, great training camp, but I just couldn’t get going.”
