Default Re: is Froch's resume really that great

With Froch it's not just about the names, Ws and Ls on the record. It's about ther circumstance, timing and manner of the victories and defeats. I defy any Brit to watch the Taylor fight and not be whooping like a madman at the end, similarly I defy anyone not to be on the edge of their seat against Kessler, amazed at what turned up against Abraham and on and on.

The only dissapointing fight for me was Ward, where he was outclassed and never really turned up. I wasn't even particularly dissapointed with the Dirrel fight, i was there and it wasn't as bad (or as close for large parts) as is now made out.

Modern British great? hell yeah! In an era of paper chamions, politics and ducking he's a bona fide beacon of boxing sportsmanship and integrity.
