Default Froch - I was hoping that Abraham was going to knock him out, and that's what happend

"I think Arthur Abraham is going to really struggle with Andre Dirrell. I think Dirrell outboxes Abraham. Abraham's tough and strong, but I think Dirrell will beat him and then people will realize what a good job I did against Dirrell," Carl Froch, during an Oct. 26 interview.

FanHouse: Andre Dirrel over Arthur Abraham -- do you feel prophetic after having called that one way back in October?

Carl Froch: Well, it's because I boxed Dirrell, and I knew what Abraham brought to the table. And Dirrell just ran away like a girl when he boxed me. He was just running and holding. But he's a good figher -- he's got fast hands and he's got slick skills, and he used those skills and those fast hands to be negative against me.

But I knew that against Abraham, he was going to just punch the hell out of him, which he did for 10 rounds. But it was a shame the way that it finished for him, because I think that that takes a lot of confidence away from him, getting chinned in such a manner. But, yeah, I knew that he would beat Abraham.

But I'll be honest, I was hoping that Abraham was going to knock him out, and that's what happened, even though Dirrell did get the decision.


FH: Why did you want Arthur Abraham to knock out Andre Dirrell?

Froch: I'm not a big fan of Andre Dirrell and his attitude and what he stands for. But if you're talking boxing, when I say that he's a good fighter, he's got fast hands and slick skills. But that's just boxing. But if you're talking people, I wanted Abraham to win the fight and I wanted him to knock him out.

And I would say that that probably is personal, because Dirrell's a horrible person. At our press conference, I had to listen to a lot of his rubbish and a lot of his jive talk that a lot of people didn't hear, and I knew how he operated. People don't see that in the background, but I've seen it and I've gotten a taste of it and he's a horrible person.


FH: Do you think that Andre Dirrell was a better fighter against Arthur Abraham after having experienced a physical style against you that frustrated him?

Froch: Yeah, I think that that improved him. But the problem with Abraham is that he doesn't throw enough punches and doesn't put enough pressure on Dirrell. He almost gives makes it too easy for him by not working. Yes, he would have improved from the loss to me. And Abraham doesn't throw much and doesn't do much, and Dirrell got away without getting too much punishment.

Ouch!! Froch really is quite candid here and clearly doesn't like Dirrell one bit.

Nothing really that strikes me as being wrong to be honest. I genuinely like the way Froch talks you know

If you watch the 360 shows ALL the fighters come off very well apart from Dirrell who seems like a grade A **** and his stupid looking brother and entourage shouting shit ALL the time.

Froch speaks the truth, I love his honesty. People can slag him off all they want, and say Dirrell won the fight, but he fought like a ***** and you cannot expect to come to the champions home town and take his title like that.

I got to like Froch. I wish he would put his hands up and come in with two fisted attacks but he is honest. He talks like a fan. Dirrell is all mouth and then gets in the ring and fights scared.

Where Froch says he dislikes Dirrell I think he is referring to where Dirrell and his team made many racist remarks to Froch (of camera of course).
