Dont feel gutted at all, like Kessler and think it makes it really obvious what Froch has to do to win - improve his stamina and work behind his jab. He has the longest arms in the competition FFS!

i think i had the fight a draw or a one point fight (some rounds were a nightmare to score) but am gutted for froch as he has had to do everything the hard way. i just hope people give him the respect he deserves now after going to war yet again.

Unusually my prediction was right that Kessler would simply outwork Froch. Having said that I had it all even at the end and wouldn't have complained either way but the score cards were a disgrace. That fat twat Tillerman should get his marching orders. Some of the worst home cooking I've witnessed! Froch should have increased his output by say 10-15% and he would have taken the fight and looked like a tko was within his grasp at several points. very good fight nonetheless and hope he can beat AA. Trouble is I really like all the european guys as people they all seem sound including Froch. Still see Ward taking the tournement

I dont feel that bad but I am gutted. I was convinced he was gonna get the KO when they came out for the 12th but what a super human effort from Kessler in that round. He can be proud of himself and I hope he can come back stronger.

Not really that disapointed. Froch annoyed me when he said Calzaghe retired rather than get beaten by him. I've no problem with him slagging Calzaghe off as a person because we all know that Joe's a twat but not as a fighter. Joe would've humiliated him. Hopefully Froch has learned a bit of humility.

As for football I hate that over exposed excuse for a sport and am never dissapointed when England lose.

Yeah gutted, I like Carl and always have. He backs up his words and speaks the truth IMO.

Absolutely criminal he hasn't got more recognition for the fights he's had since reaching world level. I can understand why he's bitter about Khan. It's not helpful to anyone but it is understandable.

Not too gutted. I picked Kessler but was willing Froch to win.

How can this be compared to England getting knocked out of the World Cup, this is just a group stage match, Froch is still well in the tournament, Euro 1996 now that was bad.

Nah, I still think he's well in the tournament. I'm still not convinced that Abraham is this beast at 168. He Kod Taylor who was damaged goods but Dirrell didn't seem too bothered the few times he got caught until the illegal blow.

Oh ok. I seem to remember a post of yours fairly late, stating that no way would Martinez get a decision against Pav. Anyway, no offence intended, I enjoy reading your posts.
