if Reid has anything at all left in the tank he goes 12. A prime Robin Reid exposes Froch. 3 or 4 years ago, before the Ottke fight, Reid would've ko'd Froch.

I was trying to amuse myself and I really dislike Carl for talking the talk but doing nothing with his talents.
But to answer the question for real, I'm unsure. Reid has a good chin, the lacy knockdowns mean nothing to me, Robin lost all will to compete in that fight after the first knockdown.
I think Carl would be better suited to fight an up and coming fighter rather than a guy whose boxing career is almost over.

I suspect Froch will tire himself out, allowing Reid to hang on once he weathers the initial onslaught.

Froch took his time KOing an equally shot, less talented Magee.

I hope Froch wins.

I don't like the guy but I have 90 riding on it from an accumulator bet if he wins!

Froch probably stops him on accumulation. Reid had a cast iron chin during his younger days, but he can't take the same kind of shot anymore. I don't think Froch knocks him down 5 times like Lacy, but he probably punishes him, knocks him down once or twice, and the ref comes in to stop it.

Doesn`t this match, fighting a once good, now part time pornstar, contain every mark of a typical Froch fight?!

First time he faces someone once half a name - but sadly now turned into a cabdriver who still might trouble him. Hilarious-****ing hilarious. Especially for someone who claim to walk his talk!!!!!

Calzaghe: "Reid is shot!"

Calzaghe on Froch: "I certainly think he can punch. But defensively he can be very loose and I think he could be caught out against a top fighter but I think Reid is four or five years past his best"

If Reid is shot (he's 36 going on 37) then Froch really should stop him. I think he will, and must really otherwise his credibility takes a knock.

If Froch is the real deal he'll stop Reid quicker than Lacy did.

Froch TKO6 Robin Reid
