    Never saw this video before. Was the fix in for round 5 or is he chatting **** ?

    Having watched it back he was getting his arsed handed to him but the fight on a whole felt weird even before Froch's comments around the betting.

    The whole wanted a glove signed is funny if true though.

    Very strange mannerisms from Ruben Groenewald but maybe that's just his style. I think the stoppage was harsh though. Interesting that it's the same ref that stopped Groves early in his first fight vs. Froch.

    Was just about to mention Foster, especially as he was caught liking the tweet the day before the fight which predicted Froch TKO 9.

    The Carl Froch vs Robin Reid fight was fixed. I know villains from Newcastle who won money on it.

    I would say from all the rumours a few of his early ones were but definitely the Reid fight.

    It doesn't surprise me. Some of the stoppages in British fights over here have been a disgrace. If someone is making big money on a specific round, the stoppage is easy to set up.

    Round 8 push him back to the ropes and throw as many shots as you can. He will cover up and the ref will jump in. I'm not sure why they would have told the guy they were stitching up beforehand though.
