    Would have to say Froch based on what I’ve seen of Smith.

    Froch is seriously underrated in some quarters but it’s worth pointing out that in boxing a lot of emphasis is placed on your last fight so naturally people’s opinion of Smith has probably never been lower.

    I’ve never got the Smith hype. Was somewhat convinced by the Groves fight but Groves wasn’t fit, he was done. The latest performance is in line with what he’s shown previously for me. Ryder was just better.

    I didn't find Froch to be as effective at LHW as he was at SMW, and quality non-sluggers trouble him.

    What? Froch never moved up or boxed up at LHW?

    It’s safe to say Froch was completely ineffective at LHW, as was David Haye.

    Sure he fought Pascal up there? Or Pascal moved up there after they met at SMW?

    Posted this a tad fuzzy-headed ;-)

    Froch fought exclusively at super middle his whole career. Pascal moved up shortly after the Froch fight.

    There we go then! Knew there was something about LHW.

    Pretty sure Froch promised Pascal a rematch @ LHW too.

    Froch would dismantle Smith.

    can picture froch battering smith and him looking at his brothers for reassurance on his knees on the canvas.
    they'd all have him winning every round too

    Froch by a distance
