Default Where's Carl Frock?

What's up with this kid? He's been anonymous for months now. He's almost 30, should be roughly in his prime and he's doing nothing. What happened to the talk of fighting Reid or Sanavia for the European title?

Get your ass in gear Frock!

He needed an operation on his elbow(?) so thought it best to get it done once all the top contenders at SuperMiddle became unavailable. I think he's targeting a fight around Oct/Nov time

Is Carl Frock a typing error, or humour?

This should be an easy win as Reid's way past his best.

If he stops him however, I'd still be impressed.

Pointless and crap fight. Froch by stoppage, Reid is done and has been for a while.

Pointless fight for the Cobra....the clock is ticking and he is treading water...

I want him to back up his boasts, and beating a shot but game Reid doesn't wash wth most fans.

Reid is past his prime but he got an ok win in Brinkley. I think its good for Froch because Reid is the last challenge to his domestic domination.

After Reid its all about fighting the Euro champ as a launch pad to a world title shot.

Should be an easy comeback fight for Froch after his lay-off.

He really needs to get a move on and back-up his big mouth with actions against genuine contenders.

Reid will give hima few problems early, but I reckon Carl will stop him mid way. His punching is destructive at the moment.

I'd like to see Froch Lacy.

I'd prefer to see Froch fight Green actually. Give him some exposure stateside.

Mundine's in a bit of trouble but if he's given the okay, that's another fight i'd love to see. Can you imagine the trash talk between them two in the lead up to it?!!
