Re: The all things technical thread.
Yeah, Taylor's ring IQ was badly lacking.
The Froch fight just summed him up perfectly. It's a fight that really he had in the bag, perhaps he should have got rid of Carl too..... but in the end he ended up getting stopped himself.
That finish from Froch is right up there with the best I've seen too, it could quite easily have gone pearshaped, not in the sense that he'd get banjoed himself, but that the bell would have gone and he'd have lost.
Lots of fighters would have jumped in all guns blazing, dragging wild hooks up from their bootlaces and been clinched for the rest of the round.
