Good job with ROOQ'S BOXING PROMOTER game! - LoadedWraps 
Default Carl Froch - Robin Reid by October

As Glen Catley has pulled out of the proposed match-up with Reid, the BBBC have ordered Froch-Reid to take place by the end of October with purse bids by 13 June.

I know Reid was a great smw at his peak, but do you think this is a good fight for Froch? They are both up for it, and I guess beating Reid will be another step towards clearing out the domestic opposition, but will it do any more to improve his standing on the world stage? I'd of thought an eliminator against Inkin would be the priority.

If this fight goes ahead, I wonder if Warren will put in a cheeky purse-bid like he did with Woods-Johnson, and make Froch fight on one of his shows.


Froch has also been ordered to defend his commonwealth title by the end of september against Adamu (who he's already beat) so i guess he'll be vacating that one

I like Reid and fancie his chances against the plodding robotic, untested Froch but I was also basing any chances he had on coming through an eliminator against Cattley.

Whithout those precious competetive rounds, he is just another rusty old chancer, whereas he could have sharpened up and got some fitness.

Reid will suffer from inactivity

He needs to improve a lot from the Lacy fight.

Froch should KO him.

Robin took the contender fight at relative short notice, only about 4 weeks, if you look at the photos when the contender uk v usa was announced and all the fighters were named and pictured Robin wasnt in it yet.

He said he tried to ko Brinkley to prove he wasnt shot but he may just have winded himself, as without being active for a while he wasnt sharp or fit.

froch has a lazy style and someone with a bit of class should out hussle him, ive noticed in his fights he is fairly easy to hit with the right hand and easy to out jab, Robin does both well enough but he needs some more rounds for sure.

froch is no young man himself at 30 and has come nowhere near a world title shot as yet, when Robin and Joe both held world titles by the time they were 24, carl just doenst have their class

Froch is fighting a washed up champion. He should be fighting a final WBC eliminator, to fight Kessler.

The only positive thing about these kinds of fights is the possibility that one guy can roll back the years for one last fight. But more often than not, it doesn't happen.

Froch!!! - Welter_Skelter Cheers to Froch. Hope to get a real beer with you in Copenhagen some time. - BattlingNelson

Reid has been mouthing off. Frochy fights for Pride.
IMO he will KO Reid in 4-5 Rounds, a nice warm up fight after knee surgery, ready for big things in 2008

Reid's last meeting with a power puncher didn't go to well and at 36, he's prime fodder for Froch. A TKO for Froch within 6.
