    He’s said that a few times.

    It’s nice to see that they’ve all got respect for each other.

    I’ve heard Joe say that out of all of them, Herol Graham would have caused him the biggest issues.

    Benn has been saying that about Calzaghe since day dot. He predicted he'd beat Eubank before the fight.

    He knows the truth and has nothing to hide.

    And yeah, I don't see what Benn can do with him if you can't knock Joe out - he was too big for Nigel. And too busy against a non-neutralizer.

    Froch
    Is to big strong at 168 Noel imo, the power at 160 wasn't really there as much at 168 with Benn,add the fact Froch is granite, I'd wager it don't go past 8 both around same time

    Froch wasn't a big super middle, he walked around at fight weight. Benn would flatten him early and stop him soon after.

    Blokes a nob, unfortunately for me he crushes Benn no doubt. He just wasn't born to lose a fight on his arse and theres no way Benns there after 12 for a decision. Froch would grind him down from 3 onwards for me, maybe physically bullying him

    Froch was in impeccable shape 24/7, 365 days of the year, a little note pad he kept of everything, all his times etc..A thorough pro as you'll ever find.Him around his fighting weight is how dedicated he was when not in camp
