Re: Hope Groves shows Froch the respect he deserves.
Froch's standard of world title opposition is some of the worst I've seen for a British fighter!
Jean Pascal? Complete garbage with the worst of fundamentals.
Jermain Taylor? Shot to smithereens and blown right up.
Andre Dirrel(sp?)? Complete coward with the worst inside game around.
Mikkel Kessler? Limited, basic, one-dimensional and shot to smithereens.
Arthur Abraham? Limtied, basic, one-dimensional, shot to smithereens and blown right up.
Glen Johnson? Limited, basic, one-dimensional, shot to smithereens and boiled right down.
Lucian Bute? Incredibly weak physically, incredibly weak mentally, and never really did anything.
Mack, whatever his name is? Complete and utter horseshit, period.
The one guy he fought who had any kind of allaround game, was natural and primed at the weight was Andre Ward, and Froch lost every minute of every round.
Taylor and Dirrel(sp?) completely outboxed Froch, too, winning at least 8-9 rounds apiece. Kessler beat him clearly, and Johnson ran him close (as did a near-death Kessler again). Pascal gave him nightmares.
The guy Froch is shit. Groves will win every round on the backfoot.
