Default Re: Showtime deal for Froch

I am a fan of Froch as a fighter, but his gob doesn't do him any favours.

Then again, thats Hennessy Sports fighters for you!

I'm not sure about his nickname 'the Cobra' - I was thinking more 'rattlesnake' for the left hand which seems to shake constantly when in a defensive position.

Over time people will warm to him when they realise that the big mouth comments are always accompanied by a wry smile. Add to this the fact that he is a real talent and exciting to watch.

I don't think anyone who has seen Froch can dispute his ability.

I certainly don't.

The reason I'm a fan of Froch is due to the fact that after something like his fifith pro fight, he made a statement along the lines of 'he was a game fella, but unfortuneately tonight he came up against the best in the world'. In all honesty I may have considered some fighters arrogant for saying that, but for some reason I found Froch ammusing and always took interest in when he was fighting.

The problem with the likes of Froch and Witter is they like to talk about how good they are, but aren't proactive enough in proving it. Instead of using the 'X ,Y & Z are avoiding me' routine, they would be better off getting a move on themselves. Froch is thirty years old, I hope he beats Inkin then gets a shot at the winner of Bute-Joppy.

Aye, people take him too seriously, his brash talk borders on the hilarious

He's a good lad really, and a good fighter
