Yep. Me. Froch is also a Forest fan so I'm biassed.

It's a shame, because Froch could be as popular as any British contender, given his fighting style. But he has to throw it all away with his attitude!

I've only met him the once, fora few seconds, but it does seem that the bullshit is all a front. Most things I've read say he's a nice guy in reality. Mind you, Hamed claimed the same....

I love watching Froch fight and I love hearing him speak. He livens up the fight game with his contrived inflammatory remarks. The way most people react to them, just illustrates how good at it he is.

I'd support him In a title shot but Kessler would beat him. He's not as skilled as he makes out to be and In a trading match Kessler will have the edge.

I would support him against Kessler as I do generally cheer on British boxers. Having said that, Kessler is a very classy fellow, and if he were to prevail I wouldn't begrudge him the victory in the slightest. It is very much a match up I would like to see though. I think Kessler has the edge as I don't see Froch knocking out Kessler, so the latters orthodox skills would see him out to a relatively close points victory.

I'd support Froch against Kessler as:

1. I've seen Froch live a couple of times.
2. He'd be the underdog and I usually go for the underdog.

Wouldn't be too gutted if Kessler won though as Kessler's a good fighter and a good guy.

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.
Spot on.

I like Kessler and I wouldnt mind seeing him beat Froch but I'd still like to see the Brit do well.... and maybe find out if he can live up to the hype.

Froch is no more of a dickhead tha JC so yes I will be cheering the Nottingham fighter on.


Up untill the first couple of punches in the Kessler vs JC fight I did not know who to support. Kessler seemed a great guy and is half English while Calzaghe acts like a **** sometimes. But I was swayed to the more British fighter in JC (he is not that bad a bloke but sometimes he's abit welsh).

I'll be cheering Froch on like any other Brit fighter.

forch makes peopl want to hate him when he tells a recognised undisputed champion to vacate his belts if hes to move up at a higher weight before he becomes the mandatory. this kind of talk pisses people off, he talks like hes reached ATG status.
forch just sounds like a ****in idiot when he comes along with smack talk that calzaghe will be ducking him if he vacates his belts and becomes the mandetory challenger.

kessler did seem like a sound lad but i'd definitely cheer Froch. Holding a boxers perceived arrogance against him seems to me a touch insane

I dont want to see him lose just because he is arrogant, I think arrogance is the best way to show confidence and all the greats are arrogant to some degree. However when you have been arrogant for years and still having lived up to the talk, i get pissed off. I can laugh off Anthony Small claims, but Froch seems to be taken more serisouly but hasnt actually proven anything on any kind of World level.

Inkin will show us some more of Carl limitations, though i admit myself a world belt for Froch is not out of the question.

Calzaghe then said publicly that he thought Froch fought really crap and that he isn't worth fighting. So although I am a Calzaghe fan, I think Froch is a nicer guy.

Froch is not a nicer guy. Calzaghe didn't make a name for himself calling out the Champion and saying the Champion was avoiding him whilst making defences against shot-Reid type opponents. Calzaghe didn't duck an opponent, fight the fighter just beaten by said opponent instead and then said the opponent he ducked ducked HIM and bragged how he would KO him...did he? Calzaghe didn't say he was the best SMW in the world when he was only about as good as Froch is relative to the best in the division, did he? And Calzaghe would never have said Kessler wasn't much of a test for him and that he should really be fighting Calzaghe instead, had he been Froch.
