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

You can make a case either way.

The strength of Ricky Hatton's case: He was the man at 140. He had the best win of the two (Kostya Tszyu) . Take away the comeback fight and his only losses came to the 2 best fighters of the generation. He got a belt in 2 different weight divisions.

The strength of Carl Froch's case: Better overall resume. Better longevity. Better variety (has won fights in different ways). More fight of the year type fights (Kessler, Pascal). Most dramatic moment (knocking out Taylor with 14 seconds left). Bonus points for "reshuffling the deck" by scoring upsets (Taylor, Abraham, Bute).And more outright dominant performances.

Me personally, I like Froch. If he gets a rematch with Kessler and wins I think it puts him over the top without too much question.
