Carl Froch has his fair share of haters, but generally he's very respected for hits guts.

You can't really criticize Carl Froch, he always fights the best.

Alexis Arguello is a nice shout. You simply can't hate on the guy.

In the UK ''loved and respected'':

Frank Bruno
Henry Cooper
Nigel Benn (maybe, everyone wanted him to beat the arrogant Eubank, ex-army, blah blah blah)

I would say they were top three, some are respected and not loved, others are loved but not respected.

You could probably add calzaghe, people like Eubank, Hamed and Froch are respected but not really loved.

I have a sneaking suspicion that even people who have picked on Cotto the most also kind of liked and respected him.
