Default Barker will fight Froch next year

Barker just fought for the IBF Intercontinental Super Middleweight belt, increasing his ranking with the IBF. I guarantee he's now in the top 10, the way Froch is now talking about Barker being "the best he's ever seen him." I wouldn't rule it out.

Barker is fairly average,Froch would stop him easy enough,fight will never happen,Barker will never win a world title..

Great performance by Barker but he should be aiming for a Macklin fight IMO, would leave to see a round robin with those 2 and Murray.

I don't think he will. If Magee bests Kessler do you think Froch would even fight Magee?

Adonis Stevenson is more likely to get a shot.

Probably only because it was his comeback fight, wouldn't read anything into it.

froch wipes the floor with barker,easier than martinez.
i rate barker highly,but he is a middle,and froch is a big supermiddle,and shit hot as well.
froch would beat martinez as well
