Default If Froch fights BHop do you think he'll get nervous like vs Pascal?

There's a video out there of the Brit broadcast leading into the Pascal fight where Froch was visibly nervous when being stared down by Pascal.
Hopkins is one of the scarier guys out there. What do you think happens, should they fight, when Bernard gives him the stink eye? Will Froch get nervous again, or do you think he will be cool against BHop?

Nothing wrong with nerves and he STILL won the fight so his nerves never really affected his performance!

Froch is looks nervous in a lot of his stare downs and ring walks.

He's had a string of big fights now, mostly away from home. Any nerves he has won't affect his future performances imo.

I don't think he should fight Hopkins though. There are so many big fights out thrte for him, why take the one where he's guaranteed to look bad, regardless of the result?

It will be claim that he is better than Joe Calzaghe if he beats Hopkins more convincingly.

Even though Froch > Calzaghe imo!

I guess it would make sense if Froch was of that mind. If he beats Ward though, I don't think anyone would dispute his resumé would be superior, if it isn't already.

I think Joe would have handled Froch if they fought but Carl is well on his way to leaving a superior legacy and he doesn't need Hopkins to define him.

Yep his resume is way better imo!

But you know fighters are strange animals whats on their mind only they know. But I do think 'Nard will be able to get a fight with ANY of the S6 combatants with ease!

I don't think Froch ever looks nervous. B-Hop is a bad fight for him though. I can easily see him losing on points and even if he won. B-Hop had to go sometime didn't he?

Hopkins is the highest ATG he will face in his career, I don't think its a fight anyone would turn down

Unless he gets really old over night, Hopkins takes Froch to school at 175.

For the people that don't know Froch has a history of this he's usually the first to shy away from a staredown It's meaningless and no it doesn't affect him mentally he's won almost all his fights ..people think to much about staredowns some people arn't comfortable looking a dude in the eye's doesn't mean they have a psychological edge like people tend to think.

Hopkins would easily defeat Froch; he's simply too skilled. Froch knows how to box - Hopkins understands how to box. Big difference.

When Froch got knocked down in the Taylor fight he looked at the crowd and he seemed ****ed at them not Taylor. The guys is a little different.

Froch looks visibly nervous in every bout he has, which can be a very good thing if you know how to use your nerves to your advantage. He will look nervous VS Ward, that's pretty much guaranteed.
