Why are they describing his opponent as a 'puncher'? he only has one stoppage from nine contests. O'donnel only has 5 stoppages in 14 and hasn`t fought anyone of note......is froch a part time promoter?

It would be great if he had more knock outs, but he can still beat a lot of fighters over 12 rounds.

Elwell's only KO victory was a crushing one punch knockout. He has lots of power in there somewhere.

O'Donnell is a classy fighter. Not a massive puncher though. He is a top notch prospect.
