had to go for AA KO in the end but it depends on who fights the best gameplan.

i see AA catching froch late on when the fight has become more ragged, though froch will try to outbox him til mid to late.

be happy to be wrong however.

Abraham by Ko

Froch's style naturally suits Abraham, Abrahams style does not suit Froch

This will be a tear up, and somebody is getting sparked out.

Forget all this, boxing smart stuff.

Carl Froch can only fight one way, if he fights any other way. It goes against everything he stands for........

I know poll the favours Froch after his win last night but if you look through the comments on this thread before the fight took place the majority of the brits favoured Abraham to win,
very few picked Froch. Interesting.

Froch likes a brawl - but it's his under-rated and under-used boxing ability that has won him fights. Pascal was a quality opponent and Carl (despite everyone saying how amateurish he is) won that fight by outboxing him in the middle rounds. Even against Taylor, Froch's success came from a more measured approach.

It really annoys me when people say Froch is a terrible technician, because his two best victories can be attributed to boxing ability and not brawling. If he boxes like he did against Pascal he wins. I don't actually think Carl is a great brawler - somebody should tell him that!

AA needs to hurt Carl early to draw him into a brawl and to do this - he needs to break his bad habit and start quicker. However, as one poster said earlier, AA gets caught when he is too eager and Froch has the power to get anybody's attention.

In summary, Froch has shown he can break bad habits successfully, whereas AA has shown that when he starts in a hurry it doesn't work for him as well.

And finally, what about the size difference? This has been overlooked by a lot of people and I think it's quite significant. Froch is by some distance the bigger man.

When you call it right, you should give yourself a pat on the back. I knew Froch could do it, but I just couldn't see him not getting macho at any point. So glad I was wrong!

Loved when Abraham was hurt on the ropes, and beckoned Froch in. Froch just shrugged his shoulders, Abraham stepped forward and Carl belted him with an uppercut (IIRC). Fantastic night!

An anti-climax to a fight that was expected to be a FOTY contender. Froch was a lot better than I thought he would be. He still has no defence but is more skillfull than people give him credit for. The cunt.

Abraham was poor. Even though he's a known slow starter, I thought he would up the heat in the second half. He just never let his hands go. A shame for someone with such power. I really did not see this happening.

I done pretty good on the other thread, and made some money out of it. How the hell Abraham was the bookies fav I will never ever understand.

Froch easily, whether its by KO or points. I really dont think Abraham is all that and I also dont think this will be a fight of the year contender like a lot seem to.

Only slight worry is Froch will probably have to win 9-3 to take a close decision.
