Default Re: Haha Andre Ward clowning froch on twitter

I think Carl Froch will beat Andre Ward in a rematch..

For me, Froch was just flat.

And neglected going to the body.

That's all he needs to do against Ward, go to the body time and time again...

Body, body, body...

Break this ****er down.

Andre Ward no doubt won the first fight, but it was a physical affair for Andre Ward.

I believe that he was so far ahead in the fight that he could allow himself the liberty of taking the last few rounds off.

Yeah, Ward was gassed for the final few rounds which allowed Froch to just nick a couple of rounds on my scorecard. He even looked up at the clock at one point as well, he just wanted the fight over with. That could be a potential weakness there, his stamina. Or maybe you're right, he knew he'd done more than enough to win and so he decided to just coast home.

He had a broken hand.

Lets not start this mythical stamina bullshit.

"I thought Froch was going to break him down".....before the fight.

Technically i just think Froch neglected his jab, and going to the body. These are the only things he can do, up against somebody on the technical power level of Andre Ward.

There's no point in Froch trying to land, combinations to the head on Ward..? He's too black and slick.

What we needed from Carl Froch was some old school blunt force trauma.

Arms, body, hips, you name it! Lets break this guy down, and then bring the shots up from underneath on the inside.

And physically abuse him.

Fixed for accuracy. Do you remember what the scores actually were?

he would have been taken out if there had been three more rounds imo, his legs were going and he was getting sloppier, he was starting to get a bit of the jermain taylors about him

I actually think that's how Ward will lose one day, someone will press him to that point

It's not like he's going to say yeah I was fortunate the first fight that Froch wasn't at his best. He's a fighter so he is going to go with the fact that he was so much better and won because his skill set is of the elite.

Or he could just stop being gay and get off of twitter....Blokes like SRR, Armstrong, Dempsey etc must be turning in their graves at the sight of fighters calling each other out like ****ing women on twitter

Froch:

Quote:
He's not a big puncher, but physically he's quite strong. He was a light heavyweight as an amateur. He won an Olympic gold medal as a light heavyweight so I knew he would have something about him strenght wise and he showed that in there. I lost the fight for sure and was beaten by the better man.

Ward's a far better boxer, and just as strong if not stronger than Froch. Apart from a lucky punch, there's no way he can win. Atlanta, Oakland, Nottingham, wherever, doesn't matter.

Just sayin'.

I remember what the scores were and that the British judge was the only one of the three not suffering from temporary snow-blindness; an opinion shared by the wider boxing community.

I can answer that one. Because your crowds in your home town dropped by half during the super 6 and nowhere else wants to watch you. What else is he going to do to draw a crowd? fight Andre Dirrell in what could be the first fight in history to finish with a negative amount of punches thrown?
