Nope. Was RJJ as past it, as Duran was for the Joppy fight? Im not saying that Joe is an all-time great, but he's highly regarded, compared to Froch.
Froch's resume still has a lot of time left on it, before he can be considered great. Fighters get noticed for fighting great fighters (with names) with one foot out of the door, Froch hasn't done that yet.
Do I like Joe? Hell no. Is he more recognized than Froch right now? Yes
