WBC Have today made Nottinghams undefeated Carl "The Cobra" Froch mandatory #1 for SMW held by Joe Calzaghe.

As Joe will not take the fight, it looks like Carl will be handed the belt.

Not the best way to win a title, out of the ring, but looks like the Brits will soon have another World Champion!!!!!!!!!

Bring on Kessler and Bute to get KTFO.

In Australia.

If they give Froch the belt, hes not going to travel to Aus to fight Mundine, I doubt he'll even fight him, it would be a good fight though, I like both of their styles.

Mundine needs to start calling out Froch if he wants to Fight The Cobra. Because Carl Fights for PRIDE, and fights guys who mouth off and are willing to fight.

Why would Carl go to Australia??? Froch has a Large fan base and is big ticket seller in the UK.

I know Carl has a deal with Golden Boy for future fights in USA

Froch would beat Mundine anywhere.

Clearly Calzaghe isn't going to face Froch and so the title will be up for grabs but will he be given it or will they make him fight for it. Considering he became No1 contender without needing to throw a punch they should make the fight with the No2 contender (no idea who that is though)

Mikkel Kessler.

Now that would be an interesting fight. I think Kessler wins though.

Good joke.

Froch doesn't beat the top 3 in the division. Bute will also destroy Froch.

He keeps his hands to low. And he is slow.

Just get ready for the wake up call.

Fighting Choc can occur in OZ, because he knows that its an easy win. The money should be decent. Presuming Choc doesn't get the fight with Winky or Sturm.

Have you not noticed Froch is obsessed with Calzaghe? If anything h e mouths off more than everyone else.

Is that the same Bute who was taken 12 by Tatyvosyn????? The same Bute who was offered a fight with Froch but didnt Fancy It??

Didnt Froch Blitz him inside 2????

Your boy Mundine is a Bum mate, how many Froch fights have you actually seen???

Actually 2. And he looked **** in both.

What world class fighter has Froch beat?

If Froch faces Mundine hes being stopped in the middle rounds. Choc is a class above. An accurate counter puncher.

What has Froch done? Nothing.

Mundine is the superior boxer.

Enough said.

Wake up from fairly land.

loooool, Froch would destroy everyone in the division other than Kessler and Calzaghe. Stylewise he would give Calzaghe hell to, but would get destroyed by Kessler.

An old man with questionable skills and a lack of any worthwhile defense is hardly the saviour of the SMW division.

Simple question for the Froch fans: Who's he beat?

You say what has Froch done, but what has Mundine done? He has beat up on a selection of bums from around the world then got KTFO by a feather fisted chump. I would take Froch over Mundine every day of the week and I sincerely hope this fight gets made so Carl can introduce Mundine to his old friend, the canvas, again.

I am not defnding Carl's resume, I agree its weak, but I am still a big fan. I think he really has the ability to shake up the smw division in Calzaghe's absense. Froch gets written off a lot, but so far he has past every test with flying colours, albeit against less than stellar opposition. I hope he can get a big fight in the next few months and then we will all find out if Carl Froch is for real.

I'm not biased when it comes to Froch, i do know his weaknesses, i acknowledge his resume isn't the strongest and agree it's now or never with him.................but, as a fan, i will stand by him all the way.

I also like to add some heat to conversations by saying he can whoop a certain body. Half of me believes he actually can. As for Mundine/Froch, it could make for a big fight.....but i will stick by Froch and say late KO.:banana:

What he surposed to do, all the so called big boys run a ****in mile when it comes to fighting Frochy. Berrio was offered 100K but went missing when it came to signing, Calzaghe had the chance but took fights with Bika, Ashira and Manfredo and he says Froch is a Joke. What he realy means is ( **** that im not fighting Froch if i dont have to.) I think they might have made miles more money from tickets alone than the above mentoned 3.

And by picking Froch by KO shows that.

There's nothing in this thread showing bias from me. All i've said is Froch would beat Mundine. What's wrong with that?

I've betted a lot in boxing, not petty sums i might add. If they fought, i would bet huge money on Froch.

You just got to admit your boy will face defeat if they ever meet.

That's bias. Who decided Mundine is the 2nd best SMW in the world?
Bute, Froch, Taylor and Miranda would all beat him.......and we all know about Kessler.

You also say Froch's power isn't top 5 in the division. Are you kidding me? That's his biggest asset. I'd argue that he is the hardest hitter in the division. He's definitely the most feared. The Guzman of SMW.

He would struggle to beat Junmar Dulog.

You must realise there is a world of SMW fighters outside your town.

Dude the guy has beat no one. Mundine has beaten Echolls, Green, Soliman convincingly, lost to Kessler by the same margin Kessler lost to Calzaghe. Enough said.

Kessler kills him aswell.
So does Bute.

So does Miranda and Taylor.

Please don't compare the 2.

There's only one guy i can't see Froch getting past and that's Kessler. Froch has an awkward style that will be a nightmare to compete with for the other contenders. Froch will get the chance to show you when he's officially mandatory after May 10th.

Nobody will have a reason to run.

Whos running mate?

Froch has called out Calzaghe. Because he knows Calzaghe won't fight him. Hes the one running. How many times has he called out Kessler?

Exactly, good post. Froch would cause him problems, much like Kessler did. But Calzaghe would be able to adapt and would ultimately take Froch to school.

Yes, I understand that. If he had said "Calzaghe beat a prime Reid, while Froch beat a shot Reid" , I would say fair enough. But to say that Calzaghe's win over Reid, which was debatable eventhough I had Joe by 2 rounds, is more convincing than Froch stopping Reid is not true.

Evans Ashira has lost to Frochs ****in sparring partner FFS. Froch at the time
was British and Commonwealth Champ.

Are you trying to say Ashira is more Credible than Froch???

Calzaghe was far from convincing againsed Reid.

If Reid is shot WTF are Popkins and Jones.

Calzaghe beat a very good fighter in his prime having been injured and not sparred a single round.

Froch beat an old man who's training consisted of starring in various ****ographic films.

he won't get handed the belt. its not like he holds an interim belt which will get upgraded to the full version.

he will have to fight someone for the vacant title. inkins the number 2 but as he can't train for 4 weeks without getting injured, i expect froch to fight kessler for the vacant belt (assuming kessler gets a warm up fight in the next month or so).
