    Somebody needs to make a clip of that counter double jab to the body and head, from about 8:20 to 8:25.

    In all seriousness, I think Conteh would have stopped Froch in about 4 rounds. His jab would have smacked Carl's head back repeatedly and the follow-up blows would have all landed pinpoint. Hard. John C had real power before his hand(s) gave up on him.

    What is the point of a thread like this? oh yeah so everyone can bash a certain fighter why not Conteh v the like of Hopkins Tarver Jones Dawson ect.



    I think he beats them all exept Jones.

    Prime Conteh could well beat Jones. He had everything needed to trouble Roy: the jab, fluidity, speed, toughness, killer instinct and all-round game. And he was dirty in the trenches. Jones would have done everything to avoid facing him at all.

    he's probably our most under-rated world champ.he was a hell of an athlete and as you said ,before he started having trouble with his right hand he looked set to rule the roost for years

    I could n't agree more. Prime Conteh v Froch would be no contest. Froch worries me a little. Too one dimensional.

    Conteh is the most talented British post war fighter I've seen. An atg in terms of ability (but not achievement obviously).
    Thread is rather unfair on Froch.:lol:

    I've started to watch a lot of Conteh recently and he really had the talent to be a superb fighter. Didn't he also party quite a lot outside of the ring? That along with his hand troubles probably accelerated his decline.

    It would have been a dynamic, career-boosting highlight reel of a fight for Conteh, as he would have blown out Froch in 3 or 4 rounds easily.
