Froch has been fighting the best fighters in the world - the absolute elite of his division - every single fight for the last few years. If anybody deserves an easy fight it's Froch.

I'm a fan of Ricky Burns, and the win against Mitchell was great but beating Kevin Mitchell (who hasn't proved he deserves to be anywhere near the top 5 ranked fighters in the division if we're all being honest) doesn't then mean you can justify trying to put him up against somebody of the calibre of Liam Walsh in his very next fight. It's not having a go at Ricky or you Billy, I don't have any doubt that you two want to take on the very best all the time, it's more his promoter that people have the problem with.

There is no reason somebody as good as Burns should not be consistently fighting the best fighters in the world.
