Froch has never beaten a SMW world champ, other than faded Reid the most accomplished SMW Froch has beaten was Magee. Other than that I cant recall Froch beating anyone who has done much at SMW.
Steiglitz has beaten undefeated WBO SMW champ Balzsay who is now WBA regular champ and beaten Gutknecht who beat Balzsay.
Froch doesnt have much of a workrate and Steiglitz has improved his. With the thought that Froch doesnt seem to jump on fighters even when he has them hurt, I could imagine Steiglitz boxing to a close UD.
Against the grain I know
