Default Re: Froch and his "Warrior" nonsense!

He's a throwback. A fighter who'd have fitted in back in the good old days when boxing was more about guts, heart and toughness than it was about skill and athleticism.

Fellas like Khan, Haye, Cleverly and so many others wouldn't have got anywhere near titles 30 or 40 years ago if they'd even lasted in the sport at all. Froch though has that grit and inner-mental strength to suggest he could have IMO. Kessler is the same. True tough guys who like to have a war, not athletes who just hit, hold and run and don't like going to the deep water. Sometimes Froch's confidence and self-assurance crosses the line into arrogance, it's always the same with him.
