    I agree with you man and don't hold it against JC but Froch was a better fighter than the majority of JC's 168 title fight opponents. I also don't blame Carl for wanting it that bad. All British world title fights sell. Just bad timing. I doubt we missed that much anyway. Froch Pascal was a barnburner.

    Anyway, hope Froch stays retired. That must be a harder battle than any fight he.was in. Enjoy your life Carl and be proud you left on top. Look at Roy Jones for crying out loud.

    He'll have to chop off an arm to make 168.

    If Jack wins (somehow!?) Maybe....
    I could see it....catch-weight at a stadium.
    Degale punks Froch though and he knows it.

    By that time Froch was his mandatory and negotiations had been back and forth between Hennessy and Frank for over a year before that.

    They weren't long term rivals but the fight had gained momentum and it should have happened. Its not true that Calzaghe had just missed Froch.

    Calzaghe retired because his hands were getting so bad he couldn't spar and had trouble training. He had recurring injuries in his hands his entire career. It had nothing to do with Hopkins. A rematch was never on the cards because no network would have touched with a barge poll after the damn ugly affair that was the first fight.

    I can smell the 80,000 people that show up for his return. The smell of marmite,
    meatpies and Guiness.

    Yeah, and Kelly Pavlik was also mentioning his name and claiming 'duck 'when he went for BHop instead.

    ( Kelly later decided to show Joe how to PROPERLY beat up Bernard, but that didn't go exactly to plan.

    At that stage , Calzaghe was chasing one or two big $$$$ fights before hanging them up.

    both feigned injury.

    there is little point in debating with you, your bias means you always return a meaningless point.

    this is true, or was it jones I cant remember.

    either way, he avoided his mando with froch to move division for older opposition, so to claim that froch and joe weren't due to be head to head, and therefore rivals, is fallacy. joe wanted out on a payday against what he felt was a guaranteed win, which is fair enough.
