Default Re: Hatton's Career v Froch's Career who wins?

Froch does get a bit overpraised when all is said and done mate, I wouldn't disagree with that. I don't think any of his best wins - Bute, faded Abraham etc - are truly great ones or that any of his opponents as he faced them other than maybe Ward will go on to be remembered as great fighters. It's debateable as to whether Tszyu was a truly great fighter even in his prime or just a very good one, but even the faded version that lost to Hatton was probably better than anyone Froch has beaten.

But Carl has consistently taken on the best that today's game has to offer with no hesitation, cherry picking or ducking and he's come back from defeats brilliantly. Limited fighter, quite arrogant, but his constitution is absolute steel by this era's standards.

Edit: I might be being harsh on the Bute win, I don't know.
