Not how underachieving works. Its all about ability and expectation.

You need a fair bit of courage and heart to step up from Cruserweight, to face such a difficult challange.

Carl Froch has more heart than David Haye because he walks forward and fights like a re**** against fellow Supermiddle Weights..?

So what if David Haye fought a tactically defensive fight against Wladmir Kiltschko, this is boxing. David Haye has to find a way how to get around the height, weight, reach advantage some of these heavyweights have upon him.

Carl Froch is a no mark anyway....
Agree with this 100%. Until the ludicrous last point.

So career achievements will be..

Commonwealth Games Gold.
Olympic Games Gold
European Champion
British & Commonwealth and Champion.

I am not even sure if he would of been world champion if he had adopted his amateur discipline, and not attempted to do everything for himself.

He may not have lost silly fights to Rogan or Sprott! But it was still a gamble that he would of been World Champion.

He could of done allot of things differently and he knows this......
So if he beats Price he has matched Henry Cooper's achievements...

the fact he won the gold in style was why the bbc stumped up a million to him. Audley then ****ed it up so bad that BBC got out of boxing. Cheers A-Farce.

he's actually a massive over-achiever. Consider his weak character, chin and limited skills. He won gold in a low-level competition by jabbing and running.....yet the money he's made and the hype is way out of proportion.

Anthony Joshua is the next recipient of this nonsense. It's all about careful matching, management and hype. Even Stevie Wonder could see Joshua got taken apart in his first round match against the Cuban. Boxing is in a sorry state these days.
