Default How do you think Froch would fair if he moved up to Light Heavy?

How do you think he would fair against the likes of:

IBF - Cloud
WBC - Dawson
WBO - Cleverley
WBA - Shumenov

Hopkins and a rematch against Pascal?

I think he could beat all six of the stated fighters above and could become a 2 weight world champion.

Well, Dawson and Hopkins it really depends which versions show up.

I'd favour him against all the rest though

my only worry is how much time does he have left? im sure he could beat all 6, but hes 34 and has been in a few scraps, does he have time to beat ward kessler bute as he seems to want and then move up and make an impact? in fact i'd fancy his chances in l.heavy much more than super middleweight, as, though i think he could win against ward and kessler (bute isnt up for discussion, froch by demolition) i think he'd have a much easier time against any of those 6 above

He would beat cleverly pretty easily I think

He beats Clev, Shumenov and Pascal. I'm unsure about Cloud, he's still a bit of an unknown quantity for me. B-Hop would frustrate the life out of Carl, providing he's not done i think he wins. Dawson has the tools to beat him but he's a mental midget, Carl would break his will in the later part of the fight.

He would fare pretty well I reckon. In fact, quite possibly a favourite against anyone, although Dawson may pose handspeed problems I think if Froch has learnt from Kessler it's possible he can outwork him. Similar with Hopkins if he can establish his jab, although he would be frustrated badly and look sloppy I think he'd be seen as pressing the fight. It's coming a bit late though possibly.

I also think Froch would have way to much for Clverly but I see no reason at all for Froch to move up. He has plenty big name fights in his natural division.

All are beatable. Cleverly perhaps the toughest because so far he looks like he will work for 12 rounds and take anything you give so if you don't outscore him strategically and preapre for 12 then you are heading for a loss.

Cleverly too big, too strong, too fast and too skilled for Froch, Froch would need to step up to Lightheavy after he gets beaten by Ward, and take on young Clev sooner rather than later as Clev is only 24 which is young for a world champion, Clev is in theory going to improve, i dont think Froch would be good enough to beat Clev even if they fought next year, 2 years down the line and Clev wins by a beatdown or stoppage.

I have seen about 5 of your clev related posts and you must be his mate or a family member

sorry but that is crazy, froch is on a different level to cleverly at the moment and probably would be in two years, cleverly likes a scrap and so does froch, so it would be a good fight, but froch just knows too much for cleverly, nathan sturggled with bellews jab, and frochs jab is massively underrated

I honestly think Cloud would knock Froch out.
