Default Re: Carl Froch to fight Adonis Stevenson next

Anyway, I broke this fight down a long time ago...

Adonis has big power, but he isn't knocking Froch out (nobody is, really).

He isn't going to outwork Froch and win on points. His style is more based around defending and looking for that big shot, whereas Froch is attack, attack, attack. Judges tend to prefer the latter.

Unless he flat-out runs, he isn't going to survive Froch's attacks. He was legitimately bulldozed by Darnell Boone; he isn't standing up to the Nottingham terror.

Adonis with his athleticism and power can conceivably do well against anyone who doesn't have that Kryptonite trifecta of an exceptionally strong beard, very heavy hands, and a relentless untiring offensive-minded style. Unfortunately for him in this match-up, Carl has 'em all.
