I get that Joe wanted an American to go to his country and look good against but I remember thinking WTF when that fight was made. Exactly like I did when Joe signed to fight Peter Manfredo.
I can see the view of Froch being the underdog while Cazlaghe and Kessler was a pretty even match going into the fight. Both wins are good and I couldn't make my mind up on which one was a better win...
Lacy was a huge favourite.
Lacy was considered to be argubaly the best fighter at 168 at that point.
Really nothing alike to the Manfredo fight.
