Default Re: Steve Collins: 'Froch could have beaten us all at our peaks'

Collins should know a thing or two...him vs Froch peak for peak would have been a brutal affair...
Collins makes some valid points in his punditry but makes some terrible predictions. The one that always springs straight to mind for some reason is him heavily tipping Enzo Macc to do a number on Haye prior to that fight. Froch would have beaten Collins and you could see how he might've got the better of Benn if he wasn't on one of his flat-flooted nights. Stylistically though, Eubank would've be a difficult one for him and as for Calzaghe then I'm imagining the Ward fight without Calzaghe blowing a gasket for the last few rounds to allow Froch to finish strongly. That was a testament to Froch's chin and fitness after being totally outclassed for the majority of the fight. You'd imagine Froch nailing Calzaghe a few times but Calzaghe always had confidence in his chin unlike Ward who needs to get in and out of the pocket sharpish.
