Would they balls..thats funny man! I've been a fan long enough to know the skepticism with which he was treated coming into this fight. Maybe rightfully so but now that this PR campaign to besmirch this victory is in full force it is pretty annoying to say the least.

Not specifically you, you are possibly one of the many revisionists and spinsters in the Froch fan club that I have noted
How many times I've read "Froch knows he can knock him out now" "He knows what he needs to do"

He knew what he needed to do. Two opponents had already done it. His trainer told him what he needed to do. He couldn't do it because Kessler wouldn't let him.

You've taken that quote completely out of context, its obvious I was trying to wind up one of our american cousins, and discredit Calzaghe at the same time...Kessler was just collateral damage in the argument. I actually think that Kessler has had a decent career, he has been a bit "box by numbers" in the past but whatever you think of a fighters style they don't hang on to world titles by being a shop egg

I'm still not sure what you are saying. I guess that you are making out that you were talking shit, I agree, i've always thought that.

He allowed Kessler gain the advantage in close rounds by not applying sustained pressure and he can only blame himself for the loss. Kessler turned up, fought his heart out and deserved the win, but I think Froch was just too pensive when it mattered and didn't look completely on top of his game. Had Froch applied more pressure in the fifth and the latter rounds, we could be talking about a different outcome.

As you say, it's all 'shoulda, woulda, couldas', but the fight did leave me with the impression that Froch could beat Kessler if he'd pulled his finger out when he should have; it was, after all, a close fight. I honestly think Froch would win a rematch as he knows he can absorb what Kessler can dish out and he also knows what he'd have to correct. I'd be very happy to see Kessler-Froch II at some point down the road.
Froch would probably have had the better of Kessler if he had, as you put it, pulled out his finger. But he couldn't and the reason was Kessler going to Froch's body from round 1.

If the Sauerlands have anything to do with the promotion it doesn't matter which country it's held in

I wonder if there would be enough interest to have it in Vegas.

The trouble is, is that it would mean a 4 am start for us.

They're reporting on the GF that Froch has accepted 1 million to fight in Germany.

Interesting if so.........
