Default Will team Froch' usual tactic..

..Of making his opponent stand for a ridiculous amount of time in front of a baying crowd of British yob lunatics before allowing them to make their walk on have an effect on Kessler?

We all know it completely psyched out Bute before their fight, and they did the same to Mack before allowing him to make his walk on. Usually fighters walk from backstage, but in but those fights they were out on a podium practically in the middle of the screaming, hate filled, overly aggressive British crowd. It's an underhanded tactic if you ask me.

They clearly want to get Ward over to the UK so they can do the same in the hope that it'll help Froch get the win. Shocking behaviour.

If you can't beat a man on your merits, you shouldn't be so desperate as to try anything to get the win. Is it really that important to Carl that he's willing to try underhanded, bordeline cheating tactics? Awful.


Kessler is a stronger character than Bute or Mack, however. Will it have an effect on him? Could Froch score another early knock out because of it? Hopefully they won't let them commit this heinous act outside of Nothingham and the fight will be a fair one.

Well considering he's lost the toss he's gonna have a tough time pulling that off tomorrow.
When you have a unification, a coin is tossed for who comes out first.
Don't worry.I'll keep you right.

How does that change how long Kessler will have to stand in front of the crowd before they play his music?

It's terribly underhanded though, don't you agree?

How would you feel if you were made to stand in front of 12,000 people all on your own and suffer the torrent of abuse, hate and negativity they had for you while trying to stay focused on the fight? Shocking.

Bute came in second; he was the champ. There were a couple of lunatics acting like... lunatics when Bute walked past them, but that had nothing to do with Froch.

Kessler will come in second too. You should know this.

Log off please.

Log off please.

But explain keeping him standing there for 5+ minutes before playing his music for the walk on. Who comes on first or last is irrelevant. There was literally nothing else happening. Just him standing there and the crowd baying, hungry for blood like the ancient Romans in the colliseum. Felt bad for the man.

Did team Froch not trust his own ability to win without this kind of mental warfare?!

I heard Ward tried that at the S6 final,but the crowd thought Ward was one of Froch's entourage.

I remember the same tactic working so well for Hamed v Barrera.
Where was that fight again?

This is not why Bute was zombied out. The people Bute was facing whilst waiting for his walk-on music were normal people taking pictures on their phones. They were not the ones acting like lunatics.

Don't feel bad for Bute. He is a multi-millionaire, he is quite good as hit job, he is healthy and popular.

I'm not hearing an answer to the question.

Would this kind of underhanded, sly behavior have an effect on Kessler as it did with Bute and Mack?

Ah, but there the crowd was maybe 60/40 considering neither man was from the States.

In Nothingham, it was almost 100% Froch fans. Completely different scenario.

Yeah.Froch would punch **** out of him because it's such a terrifying tactic that has ruined some of the greats of the sport.

Froch by first round stoppage.

Happy now?

What a ****ty thread

Not really. It will have an effect, but not a significant one. Remember, Kessler has fought against Calzaghe in front of 50k+ and the crowd was going mental that night when Kessler came in. Kessler has been getting used to it.

I'm more worried about the judges being affected by the crowd during the fight.

Yes how dare the british fans sing and create a electric atmosphere, Shame on them we should all chant UK Uk UK or 30 sec in the first round. Like they do in America with there USA chant then boo a couple of rounds later before walking out
