    Bellew obviously. Froch can be quite funny at times.

    Bellew, I've said before Froch seems more popular now with boxing fans than during his career for some reason, I was always a fan of Carl but I see no redeeming features in bellew at all, he's everything I hate actually

    Froch, lack of boxing knowledge which he admits he doesn't watch much. Lack of charisma pretends to a boxing "hipster".

    Bellew is more likeable, more knowledgeable, charismatic and passionate about the sport.

    I was more of fan of Froch as Boxer than Bellew but he just comes arrogant and lack of knowledge compared to the other pundits.

    Crolla and Price did a pretty good job the other day, I also think Frampton is pretty decent. Bellew is not likeable nor knowledgeable and charismatic? Bellew charismatic.. Jesus Christ.

    Paulie Malignaggi was pretty good but most Americans are.

    I actually think Ricky Hatton would be a very good pundit. As long as it doesn't involve Campbell that is.

    Disagree about your Bellew comments but I know I'm in the minority. I disagree with most Americans being good (PBC commentary is awful and Andre ward on other platforms).

    However I do agree regarding Frampton and Paulie.

    I'm also not the biggest fan of Ward in all fairness.

    When you understand that Froch has a very dry sense of humour and is 95% of the time taking the **** you start to realise he's alright

    Froch isn't some hilarious guy. He had and still has very thin skin. Yes he plays up to the "dry humour" tag now which every has given him, just like Bellew does when he tries joking about going home to his wife and kids in interviews with Kugan but the fact remains Froch is an insecure wanker. He's got bully boy tendencies and people like Groves and Ward saw through his fake bravado and stood up to him.

    I can’t knock Bellew for his achievements. He has grinded out one of the toughest careers of all. I like Tony, I liked watching him fight, and I liked his attitude toward the sport. His fight at Goodison was unbelievable. A boyhood dream comes true in a war of attrition. It doesn’t get much better. What a night for any sportsman.
    A very tough, accomplished fighter who could punch. I certainly miss watching him.
