Calzaghe: Froch Quite Slow, Heavy Legs - Groves Wins!

By Edward Chaykovsky

British great Joe Calzaghe is tabbing George Groves to capture the IBF/WBA 'regular' super middleweight titles with a rematch win over Carl Froch later tonight before 80,000 fans at Wembley in London.

Cazlaghe, regarded as one of the best super middleweights of all-time, retired from the sport as Froch was coming up. At the age of 37 and taking a lot of punishment in last November's fight with Groves, Calzaghe wonders if Froch can adapt and whether the Nottingham boxer is capable of getting any better in the rematch.

"You can make a case for both fighters," Calzaghe told The Daily Telegraph. "Has Froch got old? Is he slowing? Can Groves improve from his last performance? There is a blueprint to beat Froch. He's heavy-legged and he's quite slow."

"He's also 37. I think Groves just has to do what he did the first time. But can Froch get any worse and can Groves get any better? I'd never bet on a fight if I think it's a close fight, but personally I'd edge towards Groves."

"He's the younger fighter and he did dish out a beating in the first fight. It then got stopped controversially. At 37 (in July), what's left in the tank for Froch?"

Jealous of the Cobra, who keeps putting Calzaghe further behind him. P.S. Hopkins won that fight, air slaps don't win rounds.

Everyone knows Calzaghe and Froch don't really like each other. It's like asking De la Hoya if he thinks anyone can beat Mayweather.

[QUOTE=NachoMan]Wow. Watch that fight again, look up the word dominate, come back.[/QUOTE] Calzaghe won just about every round even the round he got knocked down in he landed more shots... Yes, that is dominating...Hopkins did his usual avoiding and any engagement of action... You are pr...

Calzaghe vs Froch would have been Calzaghe/Lacy II. Joe was cashing out in the end with big money fights. Froch would have paid him a fraction of what Hopkins & Jones paid. Get real
