Enzo Calzaghe: Carl Froch is Not a Great Fighter

Enzo Calzaghe, father/trainer of super middleweight great Joe Calzaghe, does not expect Carl Froch to be remembered in the history books as a great fighter. Enzo has kept a close eye on Froch and likes what he sees, but he doesn't view him as a "great fighter."

Enzo told Sky Sport News HD: "Let's use words, there's greatness, there's great and there's good. Obviously I like the guy, I spoke to him and he's got great ability, but he's a good fighter, a good fighter. To be great means special and I find him a good fighter. You know to be great is something about difference, it's not about punching, it's how the whole lot works together.

"He can get plan A or plan B, he can't find plan C. He's a great fighter to look at but greatness is a different level. Joe became engaged in a war of words with Froch in the latter stages of his career, although the two never met in the ring, and the Welshman admits it was just a natural part of the sport.

"It's understandable when a fighter comes up through the ranks. I used to do the same you know, shouting out (Chris) Eubank, (Nigel) Benn, all of these fighters that's part and parcel of it. Everybody comes through the business we all get paid a lot of money. Obviously the fighters are going to call out the biggest name in the division which is me."

[QUOTE=Joe2608;12677126]His resume is greater than Calzaghe's already. The amount of tough opponents he's been in with is ridiculous, mainly thanks to the super six tournament. Only problem with Froch is, although he's got a good resume, he's also [U][B]lost convincingly…

His resume is greater than Calzaghe's already. The amount of tough opponents he's been in with is ridiculous, mainly thanks to the super six tournament. Only problem with Froch is, although he's got a good resume, he's also lost convincingly…

He's not a great boxer but he IS a great fighter. He is and will be very well respected in years to come by all, Joe Calzaghe will not!!
