As for Froch he deserves alot of respect for his willingness to travel, though I think it has cost him. He was jaded by the time he was fighting G Johnson and had problems with travel leading up to Kessler which didnt help him.
Froch is a slow, low workrate, old SMW, but is willing to travel to make the big fights happen and has done well with what he has.
The annoying thing with Froch is that I often feel he could do more.
When Froch has a world title he tends to get lazy, but when he is a challenger (Pascal, Abraham and Bute), he is a different beast who fights with more intensity.
But im shocked that anyone would have favoured AA to beat him
