That being said... I must defend Vitali against morons like you.
Vitali came out of a 4 year lay off to fight Samuel Peter. Who is widely considered a B Rated Fighter.
Arthur Abraham is a B Rated fighter. Come on don't lie now, you want me to say Abraham is an A Rated fighter? We both know that's not true.
Froch also never had a 4 year lay off.
If you take things into context you can honestly make a case for Vitali's Peter win is >then Froch's Abraham Win.
Froch lost 5 of the first 10 rounds against Taylor. He was also put on his ass.
Vitali domianted Arreloa. Obviously Taylor is better than Arreloa, but Taylor was already knocked the **** out by Pavlik. (he actually lost to Pavlik twice)
168 is also not Taylor's natural weight division. Once again cases can be made.
Overall Froch is definitely better than Vitali, but to say that Froch's wins against Abraham and Taylor were VASTLY superior to Vitali's win over Peter and Arreloa is pushing it.
Froch got schooled by Ward, when he 'stepped up' Vitali was beaten half to death by the oldest fattest least motivated version of Lennox when he stepped up.
Froch lost to Kessler when he stepped up, Vitali quit against Chris Bryd when he stepped up.
Obviously Vitali's defeats were much more embarrassing because they were against an old shot ATG and a midget MW.
But still it's not like Froch dominated every time he stepped up in competition either.
Let's not blow Froch out of porportions here.
