Because it was Ricky Hatton's job to help Witter make a living.

Carl Froch is a warrior. Mikkel Kessler is a warrior.......Eddie Hearn is a warrior.

Its a warrior gangbang orgy, all warriors are invited!

How do you become a warrior, how do you qualify to be one?

Do you have to be ushered in by the Ultimate Warrior? When the Ultimate Warrior talks about the "wawwiors" he talks about the fans, is that how you become a Warrior?

Can you get inducted into the Warrior Hall of Fame?

Carl Froch is not a warrior, he is a wanker, therefore he wont be allowed entry. Only Mikkel Kessler is allowed through the doors, as he took it to another Warrior, Joe Calzaghe, Carl Froch took it to Bootay, Bootay is not a Warrior.

Warrior, Warrior, Warrior, where for art thou Warrior?

WAWWIORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Froch is as much a warrior as anyone in Boxing today so I have no problem with him saying it.

It's much better than listening to other fighters running their mouths about doing this and that then they don't back it up in the fight.l

Froch says he's a warrior and he fights like one.

At least Froch backs it up. He's not a warrior in terms of ferocious attacking ability, like a Tyson or Duran, but he can mix it. Froch is very teak tough and he's as mentally tough as they come. He's as much a warrior than any fighters around today, more so i would say.

Naz and his 'heart of a lion' patter was much worse. ''ive got the heart of an English Arab.''

Fellas like Khan, Haye, Cleverly and so many others wouldn't have got anywhere near titles 30 or 40 years ago if they'd even lasted in the sport at all. Froch though has that grit and inner-mental strength to suggest he could have IMO. Kessler is the same. True tough guys who like to have a war, not athletes who just hit, hold and run and don't like going to the deep water. Sometimes Froch's confidence and self-assurance crosses the line into arrogance, it's always the same with him.
This warrior bullshit is often just a selling point/excuse for fighters who don't have as much ability e.g Froch moaning because Dirrell didn't stand in front of him with his chin out like Froch wanted him to. If Froch had the ability of a prime Roy Jones, he wouldn't stand and trade either. He has to fight the way he does because it's the only way he can fight. Hatton was a tough, gritty fighter too but look where that got him against Mayweather, a fighter who many refer to as a coward (not that there is any shame in losing to Mayweather". Kind of ironic. No fighter should go into "deep water" unless he has to. SRL didn't do it unless he had to. For some of the best fighters, physical and mental toughness is just something they fall on when all else fails. For lesser fighters, it's the only thing they have. Calzaghe had an iron chin too, only he didn't have to rely on it as much as Froch does so he's not considered a warrior. People like to romanticize it, as if we're still living in Ancient Rome when guys would fight to the death in the Colosseum.

To say that Khan lacks mental toughness is also unjustified. What he lacks is physical toughness because his punch resistance is not very good. Even some of his biggest haters here will acknowledge that the guy has balls and has shown heart and determination many times by getting through tough moments to win.

If Witter's fights were marketed as "a cure for insomnia" then he would've made a very good living without Hatton. He would've been a billionaire by now. Maybe he should go on strictly come dancing after his pathetic poncing around against Frankie Gavin in the last round, changing stances and looking like a complete twat.

I think they do it on purpose, any shit is good shit in the sport of boxing, it all = exposure.

.....and any exposure is good.

That's why I think they go over the top, Eddie Hearn does it as well, half the time an alien seeing it would think Eddie Hearn is the fighter. The smug looks, the finger pointing and the winks. Its all done on purpose IMO, to piss people off and get people talking. Eddie Hearn dont give a shit what you think of him, as long as you are talking and keeping his name relevant.

Surprised no-one has mentioned Froch's love of the word 'legacy' either.

I can do a cracking Carl Froch impression. So funny, I have myself in howls of laughter doing it. The voice, the posture.

The Nottingham accent is just so easy to rip of.
