Default Re: Carl Froch's Future

I dont think Carl Froch will beat Lucian Bute. I think Bute will clearly beat Froch possibly by shut out if Froch goes the distance. Froch is getting older now and seems older than he actually is.
If Froch does lose to Bute then he will only have limited options left for big fights and titles. Froch could push for a -

Brian Magee rematch to try and win Magees WBA int title
Karoly Balzsay for Balzsays WBA regular title
I think Steiglitz with his combinations and workrate would be a very even match up for Froch now.

But I dont think Froch will want those. I think if Jean Pascal beats Tavoris Cloud, Froch could get the Pascal rematch that Jean has wanted.
Still I think Froch should stay at SMW win or lose after Bute and make some domestic match ups if possible (if he chooses to continue his career) and call it a day. A possible fight with the up and coming Groves or DeGale would make for a another big occassion, though I wouldnt like Froch to finish off as a name on a prospects resume whos on the rise. Froch deserves more than that, but I think now, he is near the end
