not sure if froch has the height and reach advantage, but AA was a sitting duck that didn't fire back. johnson has good head movement to get past the jab and he will let his hands go. considering the fact that froch's head movement isn't that great, I think johnson should be able to hit froch with the overhand right regularly. johnson is a tenacious guy and he doesn't back down. he can crowd you and work you to the body on the inside.
styles make fights. you can't outbox a volume puncher, you gotta outpunch him. that's why froch has to revert to his brawling style to beat johnson.
Wasn't Marquez outboxing Katsidis?
