Default Carl Froch - A good rep like a carrot in front of a donkey

I am firmly sat on the fence as far Carl Froch is concerned. Whilst his lack of natural boxing skills is appallingly evident, his ability to take and deliver a punch, and his stand up style is engaging and exciting to watch. i fear the thing he will struggle most with is achieving notable recognition and a solid reputation.

Last nights result really does hinder him......least for now.

Win, lose or draw against Kessler in March, each outcome does nothing to help him where this is concerned.

He loses then he's beaten by a 'clearly overrated and shot fighter'

He wins then he's simply beaten someone who 'actually wasn't that good'

He draws then, well, no better.

Poor old Carl, it's going to be a long time, if at all, before he gets much love from the tough Boxing Scene forum crew.

Why would froch care about trying to please boxing scene posters when most of them are yanks that are bitter about him owning your fighters.

every fighter wants to be popular, to think otherwise is ridiculous.

I agree I do feel a tad sorry for Froch. All Froch has been saying is he wants a unification matchup with Kessler in a war at Nottingham footy stadium.

Wouldn't it be much better if the next set of fights were:

Froch v Ward for a unification bout at Nottingham
Dirrell v Abraham
Kessler v Taylor The loser is out the tourney and disappears from boxing mainstream.

BTW are the matchups already set in stone or can they be subject to change?
