Default Re: Froch V Calzaghe. A Close Fight?

I don't even like Joe and i got mad respect for froch but Joe beats any version of froch on any night. He might even stop froch with his volume and power and speed. Joe would war would froch but still be at low risk because he's much more skillful and technically better and physically better. Froch would be walking in to fast combo's from joe who could hurt froch and possible get a stoppage or froch's chin stands up and Joe outboxes and out brawls froch and dominates him all night.

Ward had to neutralize Froch's attack by fighting him on the inside. He is too dangerous from mid to short range. Calzaghe isn't that good on the inside and hasn't the power to hurt him.

Calzaghe would make Froch look like the primitive swinging caveman that he is. I seriously doubt that Carl would even win a single round.

Hopkins' age is irrelevant. Calzaghe got put down by a professional athlete weighing close to 200lb. Besides, Joe only got put down because he squared up his feet, he wasn't even hurt.

I'm a far cry from a Calzaghe fan. Couldn't stand the guy.

Carl, on the other hand, has grown on me. Love his interviews, and always try to see his fights.

Slappy Joe would run circles around Froch, and slap poor Carl's ears off. The Cobra isn't fast enough, and doesn't move around well enough to keep up with Joe.

Joe has the power to hurt froch, froch has shit defense and a iron chin but letting Joe T-off on that chin for 12 rounds is a serious test for froch's chin. Calzaghe throws a lot more than anyone froch has faced. He would get hit a lot more and a cut wouldn't surprise me either. Joe's better than froch on the inside and he's elusive and too slick to get caught with combos from froch he has much better reflexes than froch. Froch would be struggling to hit Joe. Froch's low guard would be the death of him vs Joe.

Stylistically I think Froch is all wrong for Calzaghe. Joe never faced a fighter with such determination and relentless pressure as Froch. Its clear if Hopkins applied a little more vigor and urgency he could of taken the fight.

Froch is at no risk of a KO and would not respect Joe's power. If joe went in to throw his combinations it could possibly be cataclysmically the undoing of him. Calzaghe had a habbit of facing his opponents straight on while Carl turns to the side with his chin tucked under his shoulder. This is what throws the fight in favour of Froch, in the exchange , trade for trade Joe might land more but Froch is getting in the more hurting shots.

Fighter's who trouble Froch the most are well schooled and technical. Dirrell gave Carl problems , not with handseed but by fighting on the backfoot. Joe would not be fighting off the backfoot looking for countering opportunities , he would be coming at Carl with voloume punches. This tactic would play right into Carls hands. The speed wont bother Carl and he will eat a few to land his jab and overhand right. He might be getting outboxed but Joe is slowly getting chopped down and taking the worst out of the exchanges. Carls patience and timing could well result in a late KO victory.

Its just a possiblity, but a very possible one.
Is that you popkins???

exactly , all 4 punches that put Calzaghe down were punches he did`nt see due to being up close and with his guard up, and each he sprang straight back up and went back at em. Thats why calzaghe fought with his hands down.

Joe wouldn't have the resume to get a shot at Carl nowadays.
Maybe a tune-up though.

lol but he thinks the froch of today beats any version of calzaghe

Forget about resumes lets look at skills and go from there, Froch and Ward are fortunate to have been in a era where there was a big tourney
