Default Is Froch the GOAT?

He has to be. Pascal was throwing very solid right hands all night, and every single time, Froch was able to get his gloves out of the way in time, and ensure that his face took the impact instead.

I admit that George Chuvalo is a close contender, but I remember him once leaning his head to the side slightly, and only taking 98% of one of Foreman's bombs.

What say you?

Froch has never been knocked down amateur or pro so thats how good his chin is... but I still believe Calzaghe would of dominated him, but maybe if Froch could land a killer punch he'd stand a punchers chance.
