Team Froch Shake Heads Over Lack of Support

Trainer Robert McCracken, along with IBF/WBA 168-pound champion Carl Froch, were left with a "sour taste" in their mouths after being booed in the aftermath of the ninth round stoppage of George Groves in Manchester. Most of the fans in attendance felt the stoppage was premature, as Groves was ahead on all of the scorecards after rocking the champion several times in the bout.

Mracken told Sky Sports' Ringside:  "I think first and foremost it left a sour taste in our mouths. There were highly-experienced people in the sport that are clearly of the opinion that the stoppage was right. I've heard he (George) was rolling punches and waiting for Carl to wear himself out. He was bang in trouble, no doubt about that.

"To stage a comeback like Carl did, albeit that the referee jumped in two or three seconds early, and to get booed out of the ring is a really poor show. We are kind of stewing from that. It was very disappointing considering all that he's achieved in his career, all the fighters that he has beaten and also the memorable comeback he had on Saturday."

Who knows what would have happened? Put yourselves in Froch's shows for a moment here. Surely he felt that he was about to win and the referee prematurely forced the enevitable and in that light one can understand his sentiment. Both should really be happy with the outcome. Groves didn't suffer ...

Golovkin would put a lot of leather on Froch, and tough as Carl is there's no guarantee that he could take it. No certainty that GGG soaks up his shots either though. Would be interesting to see what would happen if GGG had to back up. Might not handle it very well at all.

[QUOTE=B0XXING FAN]Froch should be the one egging on a rematch to prove he can do it again - rather than fueling the doubters minds and perceptions that he was lucky to get away with two of his titles... Fraud Froch! How about you answer Stevenson's call?[/QUOTE] Yep I don't know why this d...

[QUOTE=House of Stone]I wasn't so sure of this until the groves fight but after seeing that ... yeah GGG would KO froch[/QUOTE] Groves has a lot of speed advantages on GGG and is more explosive with his punches. I think that's what caused him the biggest problem. That being said, I also think G...
