Default Who do you rank higher Honeyghan or Froch

Both regained titles though honeyghan was undisputed number one. starling and curry were probably on the same level as ward (froch's) greatest opponent

honeyghan edges it imo cos he was undisputed

Honeyghan. He actually battered a fighter more highly regarded at the time than Ward is now.

Do you agree with people who discount the win by saying Curry was weight drained?

NO, Curry just looked past Honeyghan, back then brits/euro's where viewed as nothing more than a nuisence, planet america/home of the almighty $$$ always took precidence, Lloyd was'nt taken seriously. That performance by Honeyghan was absolutly supreme, annailated the P4P main man, Froch got schooled by the main man

He was drained but it's levelled out by being such a comprehensive beating.

This is true, but Froch has had more impressive victories overall, so I'd rate Froch higher.

I think it's neck and neck IMO. Froch probably needs another world class win or two to just edge ahead.

I seem to recall the Rossi ko was pretty brutal. Weather Honeyghan should be ranked ahead of Froch I don't know but its clear he's been an underrated fighter for many years.
