I would have to say that Froch has 0% chance of beating Ward. In his prime Ricky had perhaps a 10% chance of beating Floyd.

That's why I have Ricky over Froch.
Mayweather was a 140lb fighter fighting at 147lb too to be fair so it wasn't as if Hatton was stepping up and fighting the much bigger man, if anything he was fighting a smaller one.

I'd both give them the same chance of beating Ward and Mayweather, a punchers one as neither are skilled enough to systematically break them down or walk away with a points decision.

I vote Froch btw, not only does he have a better resume since hitting World level but he was the first man to hand legitimate defeats to Bute, Abraham, Pascal and Dirrell.

Hatton ruled a poor division mainly because the stand out opponents in there in Mayweather and Cotto moved up to 147, however the Tszyu win is better than anything Forch has.
