Default On the bounce: Pascal, Taylor, Dirrell, Kessler, Arbraham - credit to Froch

Froch has now fought, one after the other: Pascal in the UK, Taylor in the US, Dirrell in the UK, Kessler in Denmark, Abraham in the UK or Germany (to come).


Full credit to Froch, imo, for taking these series of fights and I feel it a little unfair to knock him too much for losing in a decent brawl on another mans turf tonight.

That's a fairly serious series of opponents straight after each other, imho.

The same can be said for everyone else in the super six though. Or did I miss the point?

That this is the Brit forum and Froch is a Brit?

Credit to them all.

Also, the Pascal and Taylor fights were not in the Super Six, so yes, yes you did. : )

Can I play devils advocate?

Pascal - What's he done?

Taylor - Shot.

Dirrell - Lost.

Kessler - Lost.

Not a lot there to be honest is there?

It's the attitude to take on these fights (sometimes away from home), I'm commenting on, first and foremost.

I like it and wish to see more of it.

The "whats Pascal done?" question is easy to answer...he became the WBC Light Heavyweight champion.

It's fantastic, you've gotta love him for it.

Fair play to his absolute self belief

Many more fights like that and they'll be all shot to shit just in time for Bute to mop up the winner...
