Default Anyone here who would honestly* support Froch against Kessler...?

* honestly, that is, without having a vested interest in seeing Kessler do well because the better he does, the more Calzaghe's win will mean, long-term, and/or, without having a versted interest in seeing Froch beaten by the man beaten by Calzaghe, so that Froch can look foolish for calling out Calzaghe in the first place.



HONESTLY...would you?

Who would we like to see Froch get beaten by the most? Calzaghe or Kessler? If Kessler beat him, then we would get denied the pleasure of Joe whupping him Jeff Lacy style. Then again, Kessler has the tools to do a proper number on Froch, which would be good. It's a shame that we can't have both!

I like Froch's attitude - nice to see a Brit being honest about his arrogance.

I like Froch, he's a sound guy I reckon....and would love to see him beat everyone at 168, including Calzaghe.

Froch struggled with a past his prime Reid, I won't be suprised If Inkin wins.

Boxrec are bringing up Inkin's chin being shaky too.

Thats what I thought Max, a badly shot Reid had Froch hurt on more than one occasion with wild overhand rights.
Thats Frochs weaknesses, his defence & handspeed. However, the boy can punch hard, & his chin does stand up to the silly punches he gets hit with. also I didnt know Inkin was supposed to have a weak chin, maybe Sean can fill us in a bit more on that one as he has a fine knowledge of the european scene.
If Sean says hes got a shaky chin, only then would I believe it. I dont trust the brit posters on Boxrec to know the european boxers that well.

I like Kessler as a fighter more than Froch. Kessler is the far superior fighter to Froch and I would be cheering him on. Nothing to do with nationalities or any Calzaghe fan boy sentiments either.

Kessler came across as a classy guy after the Calzaghe loss and won a lot of fans over here, Froch's attitude can be rather annoying at times but I don't overly mind him.

Don't suppose I'd be overly fussed either way, although Froch could become even more annoying should he win a 'World' title

How predictable. The 3 people with Calzaghe pictures have all stated that they do not want/think Froch will win.

Being British, I will always want to see a fellow Brit do well on the World stage.

As someone else said, I don't care about his personality. As long as the fight is good this is the important factor.

I go agree though that the better Kessler does in the future, the more importance people will put on Calzaghe's victory. If Kessler turns out to be a an average world champion then Joe's victory will be diluted.

If they were honest, as the thread required, they didn't. I think they were honest.
