Froch is everything that is right with Boxing. Ducks no one and works hard all the time. A proper profressional!.
I agree, he is a great guy.

Went through a stage when, he was pissing me off, just in afew interviews etc..

But he is a bad man, and i think he can beat Andre Ward in the rematch. I picked him to beat Andre Ward first time around....

What makes you feel he can beat Ward in rematch mate?. You see something in the first fight or just feel Froch has developed something?

Agree with the first half mate, not the second.

As much as I like Froch I don't think he has much of a chance against Ward.

Ward is something special, one of those 'once every twenty or so years' type fighters IMO.

I pick Carl to beat Kessler in the rematch, and just about everyone else out there at the weight, but not Ward.

Ward is all wrong for him and I think if they meet again Ward may even put in a better performance than the first time round.

Froch was not jabbing enough, he has a better jab than Ward.

I was mocking people before the fight, saying that Ward has no jab! Just like his mentor Bernard Hopkins, their jabs in my opinion are their weakest punches.

I always remember the second half of Froch vs Taylor & Froch vs Pascal..? It was Froch's jab that helped him take over in both fights. Definitely during the Pascal fight anyway!

But Froch seems to ether forget about his jab, or just not throw it enough.

Also Froch needs to go to the body more against Ward, Jab then go to the body hard! That's all he needs to do for the first half of the fight, if he is losing rounds..? so what, because i still feel that Ward is not as strong physically as people try to make out.

I still believe that Froch can break him down, and according to his black book..? He is still in his physical prime.

I can see why he wants to fight Ward again. I'm not saying he'd beat him, but he would do much better this time around. He seems to have raised his game in the last couple of fights. Starting fights at a better pace and training more for speed than power, was a very good thing to train for. Like someone else mentioned, the jab and body shots would be the Key for a Froch Win.

He looked a bit tired against Ward the first time around, maybe it was the string of tough fights on the road, but I can see him doing a lot better a second time around

The only chance Froch has against Ward is if the fights held in England and Ward lets the crowd affect him, Froch's last 2 fights he has fought like a man possessed, its also worth noting that both of the fights happened in the U.K.

He definitely seems more up for the challenge when he fights in Nottingham.

Never say never, although yeah I can't see him beating Ward to be fair. Nothing to be ashamed of as I can't see anyone from Middle, Super Middle or Light Heavy beating him at the moment.
