Is Carl Froch one of the worst SMW champs in history?
I don't see the hype with this guy, nor how someone can possibly have him in their top 10 p4p.
The kid had terrible showings in a row:
He was getting schooled by Jermain Taylor until Taylor gassed out Froch luckily stopped him in the 12th with 16 seconds left. If Taylor would of survived then he would of beat Froch even with the knockdowns. That's how much he was ahead.
Then Andre Dirrell come to England and schooled him, had Froch looking like an amateur in there and even hurt Froch. Yeah Dirrell didn't fight the best fight, he should of stayed poised more instead of holding and using too much movement but if Dirrell was able to school Froch with a sh*t gameplan then that shows how much Froch actually sucks.
Next Kessler whoops him and takes his wrongfully earned titles from him, no surprise there. And at any place on this Earth, Kessler whoops Froch again.
Yeah Froch did beat the hell out of an uninspired Abraham, but so did Dirrell and Ward, that's nothing new, Abraham is the punching bag of 168.
Call me what you want but I scored the fight with Glen Johnson a draw. A draw with Johnson?! Wow.
He then goes on to get severely outclassed by Andre Ward, Froch was a sitting duck the whole time in there, he tried to come on strong at the end but still couldn't get the job done. And he thinks he found something new that could lead him to beat Ward? Give me a break.
And what does a win over 168 paper champ Lucian Bute mean? The guy fought nobody (except Glen Johnson who Bute beat much more thoroughly than Froch) and was already knocked out by Andrade.
How anybody can rate this guy even close to top 20 is beyond me. He's a joke.
