He wasn't even KO'd, he missed with a left hook, fell over and decided to stay down. Froch deserves no credit for the fight, Mack didn't come to win. He blatantly quit, I wouldn't be surprised if he bet his purse on himself to lose in the 3rd round.

You don't win two ABA titles and a bronze medal at the World Amateur Boxing Championships without having very good boxing skills.

Yeah but look at how many punches he landed against Dirrell, look at his fight against Ward. He's not elite.

This about sums up my thoughts

wasn't this just a stay busy fight anyway? shouldn't dirrel be doing the same or has he actually started a career in acting now?

why so serious?

Even fans of froch realised this was a keep busy fight that he was expected to win. I didn't give froch credit for taking this fight but i do give him credit for not taking his opponent lightly and finishing him in the way he did. Those two body shots were vicious and I can't even imagine what fight you were watching.

Your obviously hurting that aside from ward there is no other real competition from any fighter you are a fan of. All this desperate rambling about andre "lady boy" dirrel who is mentally shot to shit and obviously doesn't want to be a fighter.

Yusaf clearly threw the fight. He's currently appealing for the rematch in Philly for the sole reason of being able to use this as his entrance music:

Mack wasn't a bad opponent for a stay-busy fight for Froch. Not sure why people are bitching. This was a voluntary defense, not the defining fight of his career.

Dirrell needs to focus on one career and one only. I suggest box only and try to make it in the acting world later.

mack seemed to be missing a bit of blackness throughout the fight

hope he can get it back in him for his next fight.
