Default Re: Defail wants to fight Froch

He's too easy to back up for my liking, which wouldn't be good against Froch.

He doesn't have the evasive skills necessary to win this one.

Froch could either stay outside and pepper him at range the way that Vitali Klitschko does, or take the fight to him. Fighting at range would be ridiculously easy, 118-110 x3.

He's not going to give the ground to DeGale the way that Groves did, he's got more confidence in his ability to take shots than Groves.

Speaking of Groves, I think him vs Froch would be a fun fight. You couldn't really be certain who would be the boxer and who would be the puncher, Groves likes to plant his feet and throw bombs, the left to the body or the booming Haye replica of a right.

I could see Groves having a bit of joy early but his defence at times is Leeds-esque.... and he burns a lot of nervous energy. I think Froch would stalk him, work the body a fair bit and get him out of there in the middle rounds.
