Any champion, any division in his first defence take less than the champion's cut after working his balls to get a shot. He had to wait and wait having being ****ed about with inkin *****ing about and then taylor not taking his shot at the vacant with froch.
Froch just wanted to fight, whether it was inkin, taylor, calzaghe, pavlik or kessler. Everyone says who is Froch but if no one has the balls to or says little reward to risk hardly froch's fault. If none of the heavy hitters of that weight dont want to fight him he should just do the calzaghe way fighting 20 good level fighters but not top level.
I am not saying froch would beat anyone of these boxers but if none of them are willing we will never find out.
Deserves is not the issue. If Froch gets less than 50% it'll still be a better purse than he could have gotten fighting some fringe contender. Sidebenefit from fighting Taylor is that he (has a chance) to make a name for himself in the states.
It's not about fairness. It's hardnose business.
