The Grim Reaper is back and looking for a match-up with Carl Froch...

From reading the article on warren's website, the fight against Brinkley was messy but Reid still got the UD. He may now have another tune-up fight before trying to get a fight with Froch.

Now, although Froch doesn't need Reid anymore, I can see this fight happening. It won't get Froch any closer to a world title but I think he still wants to show he's the top smw in the uk so unless froch gets a title eliminator in the next 3 or 4 months we could see him fight Reid...

Could be a dangerous fight for Froch.

Reid looked shot to pieces against that guy Serdjane, and that was years ago.

ah, you're probably right JUy jeffrey, but i was hoping all the time off would have done the runcorn reaper some good. reid was a good fighter who never got the respect he deserved

He got plenty of respect! There were a lot of Robin Reid fans, mostly because they liked his physique :) and a lot of feel he was robbed against Calzaghe, and anyone who saw feel he was robbed against Ottke.

Rob is an old friend of mine (early amateur days) and I believe he has come back for entirely the wrong reasons.
The result against Calzaghe was the correct one, for me the fight was always going to be close simply because Reid at his peak was a very good fighter!

Dont think reid should make a comeback because he is clearly far from his best. In his prime he was world class and robbed 100% against Ottke imo. If he does fight froch he would give Froch a tough match but could end up getting hurt.

I thinks he was robbed againsed Calzaghe too.
He has been offered fight with Froch but turned it down after mouthing off on some radio show. I like Reid but he could not handle the Cobra.
Froch doesnt need Reid but if he keeps mouthing off i think Froch will take the fight, he wont want anyone saying hes dodging the fight.
It must happen in next 3-6 months or Froch with have other things on his agenda.
I think Froch will soon vacate British Title. Maybe Reid should fight either Tony Dodson or Brian Magee, this will also give Reid an idea if hes up to fighting Froch.

I can bet my life that you didn't even see the robin reid fight that or. You probably like robin reids physical traits. I have clips from the fight and sooner or later might be able to see the whole fight. But what I've seen from the clips I have. Robin reid has a bloody face, while joe calzaghe looks like he was barely touched. And joe has a huge nose, so if someone pounds it. It will bleed. Yet, no blood from joe... Odd... I know his nose that sticks out is quite big for a boxer, thats why i said its huge... Yet, out of all the fights I've seen, no one has been able to make joe bleed like at all except for bika who gave calzaghe a head butt and was like the first time i've seen joe bleed.

Ditto, weirdos

Have you seen the lacy fight? That was not the best of reid, if it was. Reid probably would have owned lacy's ass

Reid even said himself that he lost the fight. Calzaghe was fighting with an injured hand too. Joe is a great fighter, no one can take that away from him.

The person who wins the fight is the person who lands more shots with good work-rate. Not the guy with the sexy body... :luvbed:

Either calzaghe hits like a tank and his huge nose can't break??? Or Calzaghe had the better work rate, atleast when it came to punching the face, because the clips I have appear to have reids face beaten the **** in blood everywheres on his face...

There as many that also think Reid won. It was close and could have gone either way. Calzaghe couldnt have complained if hed have lost by the odd round. This is an unbias veiw as im not a particular fan of either.
Many so called experts think Klitch was beating Lewis. Who look fine and who looked ****in proper mashed up???
Another fight iv had disagreements about was Jennings vs Mutley. Many thought Jennings did enough to win, not me judges got it spot on.
I guess you were in nappies when this fight happened.
Youve seen a few clips and you mouth off. Were clips edited by BBC Wales or Frank Warren??
You could put edited tapes of Ali and make it look like hes a complete mug.
You could put together

Your right it was a very close fight Adie, but Rob himself thinks he lost, I was there also and even with my bias view of the fight (being a mate of Robs) I thought Calzaghe just shaded it, it doesn't detract from Rob in anyway because he has given Calzaghe probably the hardest fight of his reign.

Rob was a great fighter, he had an excellent amateur career and a fantastic pro career, the Rob that fought Lacy had a million things going on in his life so...if he had fought Lacy the same way he fought Calzaghe then who knows!
