What a magnificent post the underlined is Farmboxer!!

Froch can probably thank his lucky stars for that.

If Super Joe had beaten a green Froch in a decisive manner, he wouldn't have gotten a title shot against Pascal, nor be entered into the Super 6 and had the chances to expose hypejobs such as Dirrell, Abraham and Bute.

He would've been less well known, not as rich and had a much less attractive bird than Rachael Cordingly.

The only fighter I'm not 100% sure he would've beaten would be Roy Jones Jr as he was 21 and Jones back then was a juiced-up-to-the-gills-superman.

His record would've been 64-0, or at worst 63-1.


No way the likes of Taylor and Dawson beat him

and he wouldn't require two goes to get by Mercado, Allen and Pascal.



Deal with it.
hmm... Calzaghe would struggle with Syd Vanderpool, get robbed by DLH like Sturm did... Umm.. 21 year old RJJ would finish him.... Not sure how he would do against Tarver or Cloud.. Struggle with Taylor, Struggle with Dawson..

Get real! Struggle with these bums?

If Super Joe and Lacy had both retired immediatley before they competed against each other there would be 10 threads a day saying how Lacy would destroy Super Joe.

Jones is knock down is like saying Mares' 2nd knock down in Agbeko 1 was legit.



No he dropped him with a legit counter shot ! Not Jones fault that Joe ducked in to his punch ! But then again a shot Jones should have never have dropped him

Wrong.

That's a forearm. Hitting with a forearm is not part of boxing rules.

Was Calzaghe hurt? Nope

Did he get up and spank Jones?

I await your reply with baited breath.

That's exactly why he never fought anyone worth mentioning in his prime. To keep retards like you remembering him for being undefeated regardless of era. There's a reason he preferred to hide in Wales fighting nobodies for peanuts and it sure as hell wasn't airplane disease.

I'm still waiting on your reply on how the remainder of the fight went after Super Joe got up from the illegal knock down?

How many times have your American heroes Mayweather, Broner and Ward left the United States collectively?



Put all 3 together and it's less times than Super Joe travelled overseas.

Nice try
