Carl Froch's easy fight on paper was perhaps even easier in reality. The three-time super middleweight titlist had no problems whatsoever in knocking out Yusaf Mack in three rounds Saturday evening in Nottingham, England. By his own admission, Froch (29-1, 22KO) took a few minutes to get going. Once he found his range, it was all downhill for Philadelphia's Mack, who suffered knockdowns in rounds one and three.
Froch sensed Mack was hurt in the third and never let his foot off the gas. A volley of punches had the American in trouble, with a ripping body shot sending him to the canvas for the full ten count. The win is Froch's second straight, coming on the heels of a career-best 5th round knockout of Lucian Bute this past May.
Mack has a two-fight win streak snapped as he falls to 31-5-2 (17KO). All five career losses have come inside the distance.
