What does it mean if by some miracle Kessler makes Froch look bloody awful?

I corrected your post to reflect reality.

Quote:
Lets be honest, inflated record aside there isn't a great deal to choose between Froch and The Zagginator.

Would Froch have struggled with Reid, Starie or Rick Thornberry? He'd have struggled with Reid at that point.

Would he have beaten Lacy- yep.

Would he have been competitive with a 43 year old Hopkins, nope - Hopkins would have chewed him up.

Would he have stopped a ancient roy jones- probably.

Would Taylor have given Calzaghe fits- nope

Would Calzaghe have beaten Pascal in an exciting fight- yep.

For me there is nothing between them in terms of achievement- and hardly anything in ability. Calzaghe is an over-rated commodity these days.

His defence was leaky, like Froch's

His punching technique was inferior to carls.

His chin was terrific. Barely anyone made a dent in 47 fights.

His opposition was inferior to Frochs pre-championship, and not one of his title challenges was as good as Dirrell or Pascal, except for Kessler.

Froch punches harder. He has more heart, more charisma and more balls.

There is little to choose between them other then Zagggys precious 47-0.

Stop decieving yourselves.

Froch would have lost to a prime Reid. This is 100% and evident in his fight with a shot Reid.

Froch would perhaps lose to Sakio Bika (50/50). Froch is better than Bika, but Bika matches up very well. Chinny with a sneaky right hand and good conditioning.

Some people might claim Hopkins schools an inheritantly flawed fighter like Froch.

31 year old Eubanks beats Froch.

Mitchell, Woodhall and Brewer? Difficult to pick a winner if they fight Froch.

IMO, if Froch wins on Saturday, he automatically has a better resume than Calzaghe. He'll have beaten Pascal, Taylor, Dirrell and Kessler on the spin, meanwhile Joe mulls over a fight with ROBIN REID.

I think if Froch wins this it will embaress Calzaghe and make him want the ground to swallow him up.

Good luck Froch my man.


And what if Kessler coming of a bad loss beats Carl by a margin?

I really can understand why people dont like Calzaghe and half of his 20 odd defenses were substandard. But the fact remains even on his off nights he won and a dozen or so of his title fights were legitimate. Carl has had 4 legitimate title fights, lost 1 won and nearly lost 2 others.

I have always been a huge Froch fan but I have always known he is a limited fighter even though he has all the heart in the world and is far better to watch than Joe.

Head to head Calzaghe would have beaten him 7 days a week and twice on sundays.
