Default Froch v AA

How do we all see this?

I can see Froch winning a close UD or poss a late AA KO.

About 80% Froch, 20% Abraham.

I think Abraham catches him. That lack of defence will cost him dearly. I see a horrific beatdown. Froch is the sort of slow, ponderous fighter Arthur will feast on.

Froch's defence needs to be tighter. He has to stop relying on his chin. Even if his chin is ko proof it is still losing rounds. McCracken did say to him that he has to keep his right hand up to catch the jabs but he simply did not do it. Instead he just tried jabbing with him. He was never gonna take away his jab with just the jab. He needed to be able to catch it too.

Abrahams is a good fight for Carl. He can win it. Abrahams is not impressive technically. I hope to see his uppercut break through the guard big time.

This could happen.

I think Carl will jump out to an early lead, but AA will start reeling him back in.

Either Froch by UD or AA by late T/KO

Weird thing is you here the commentators say "thats his style" and "its too late to change it now" etc... during fights he goes through spells when he fights in a more orthodox manner with his hands up and he fights better! he spears that jab out with his good reach allowing him to follow up with his big rights. Hes so ungainly and off balance at times u can see AA, who we all know tends to be choosy with his shots but usually accurate can drop Carl when off balance more than with his power affected Carl's chin (which is granite) Still a very winnable fight just another tough 1

Abraham is a monstrous puncher. If he lands as flush on Carl's chin as Kessler did at times I fear for him.

I think Froch may well do OK.
