I think people are barking up the wrong tree saying this will be a better opponent, that is not Franks way.

If you believe that? Then there is no hope for you, sorry to break the bad news.

That was all fact:

Ring Top 10: Bellew, Murat

Pulled out: Jurgen Brahmer

Turned down fight: Hopkins, Shumenov.

It's sad that nobody can accept this. Cleverly has got 10 years left in boxing. He will finish his career more respected than Froch.

Cleverly has already mentioned retirement, thats not a good sign at all.

Joe Calzaghe, who spent the best part of his career with Frank and retired unbeaten has less respect than Froch, what chance has a average fighter like Cleverly got?

Hopkins? He has come out and said stop using my name, I won't be fighting your paper champion. Yet still Fish eyes is using his name saying Hopkins want's it in January, answer that one?

Froch (who lost against the two best guys he fought) has got more respect than a man who retired undefeated and was the #1 fighter in two divisions? (Cleaning out at 168lbs)

Yeah, he desreves huge respect for willing to fight anyone, anywhere but I rank actual accomplishments more highly over someones toughness.
Calzaghe beat the best he faced and was the best in two divisions whereas Froch came short(including to Joe victim Kessler).
