Default Steve Collins: 'Froch could have beaten us all at our peaks'

Surprised no one picked up on this, full quote something like: 'Me, Benn, Eubank, Calzaghe...he's good enough to beat all of us at our peaks. Chin, Power, Heart...what more do you want?'

Collins should know a thing or two...him vs Froch peak for peak would have been a brutal affair...

Collins is as honest as they come, imagine if Froch was in the mix when the British fab 4 were punching lumps out of each other.

Would be very interesting to see how Carl would have faired against them, not sure how many he'd win but he'd give it a good go.

media talk... he doesn't believe that for a minute, collins was quite proud and thought he was the best at the time too. Froch would certainly give them good fights and is capable of beating them, but would lose a few too.

it's all relevant Froch could/would have his moment with any of his peers, true top fighters do win & lose to each other, especially the more they face one another!

What about Froch v Herol Graham at 168? Is bomber elusive enough to outpoint Froch over 12, or does Carl catch up to him and stop him

Graham was past his best when he boxed at super middle. Hypothetically speaking, imaging Froch and Graham both boxed at the same weight AT their peak....Graham dominates. He was an excellent boxer, wonderfully elusive.

Did he where..?

Muhammad Ali never ever stated any other fighter could beat him.

Go and find me the video footage where Muhammad Ali stated this.

Usually fighters say these things to please others, i can remember when George Foreman got carried away after Lennox Lewis beat Mike Tyson.

So do the Muhammad Ali that fought George Foreman would say that..? Don't you think fighters that say things like this are just trying to please people, tell them what they want to hear...?

If you genuinely believe that Muhammad Ali thinks he could of not beaten Mike Tyson..? You are not very intelligent.
