so without sounding condescending about mick, the fat little bugger, that level of fighter is about his limit and he has'nt got the panache, contacts or the slightest foggiest about promoting a fighter at the top level(the froch/dirrell show was shambolic when you consider the main support was shown on big screen)
it just winds me up cos frochy should be as well known to the casuals as Hatton/Khan etc.
This is exactly the type of shite that im talking about !!!!!!!!!!!!
What an unbeleivably bad post , Carl Froch has to be the most dislikeable fighter on British soil , at world level , i mean the guy's style is terrible , his hands are round his waste , he throws wide winging punches and jabs from his hip , he even looks awkward when he's stood still , mate Bob Arum would have Froch as an undercard fighter for his whole career he has absolutley NO PUBLIC APPEAL what so ever and the main stream just know him as :
" oh yeah Carl Froch that wanker who is shit and calls Joe Calzaghe names "
He's a joke , Fat Mick is a joke and i cant wait for Kessler to ****in blitz him ,
