well to be honest, i kind of agree with you. I think froch can look good, and be effective behind the jab. But his actual power shots seem to be not laboured, but not very cultured. and as a result he puts himself off balance as he does swing a little bit for the fences, and being off balance coming in with no defence he does get picked off.
The thing is though, i think kessler forced him into these errors at certain points in the fight.
It is frustrating watching him at times though, as he had kessler going at certain points, and seemed incapapble of going in for the kill like he did with taylor
