Froch Confident He Would Have Done a Job on Canelo, Golovkin

Former world champion Carl Froch walked away from boxing on a very high note, when he knocked out out George Groves in 2014 rematch before a crowd of 80,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in London.

Froch now works as a broadcast analyst for major boxing events that are showcased by Sky Sports.

One of the fighters who was trying to get Froch to come out of retirement was Gennady Golovkin.

The two sides were never able to reach an agreement and Froch remained in retirement.

Froch feels confident that he would have been too much for Golovkin - and Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

"Too big, too strong," Froch said on his podcast, according to The Mirror.

"Jokes aside, when I watched Canelo fight Kovalev I just wasn't impressed. I thought it was close, but I thought he was losing. At that weight he's slower. He reminded me of Arthur Abraham when I fought Abraham.

"I just kept him long with a jab, met him with combinations, and absolutely hammered him for 12 rounds. It was a flawless victory. I feel like I would have been able to do that to Canelo when he fought Kovalev, that version of Canelo."

And regarding Golovkin, Froch is just as confident that he would handle him as well.

"I'd have been too much for him. I met him and he's 5ft 9in or 5ft 10in. When I meet someone and shaking their hand, and looking in their eyes," Froch said.

“I might be wrong, but me as a fighter and the warrior I was when I was fighting. I was shaping and sizing him up, thinking, 'If I ever fight you, no problem, end of the jab, walk you into some shots, I'd be too much for you.'

"He went 11 rounds with Martin Murray. At that sort of level, you're not going to give me a problem.”

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;20193912]Froch didn't travel to Canada to beat Froch. Bute went to the UK for that fight.[/QUOTE] Right. I know I saw it live. I’ve never thought of the fight since I first watched it. Still in my Mandela effect mind…

[QUOTE=megh50;20193856]The fight was fought in Nottingham. Bute actually travelled there. If Jacobs could take GGG all the way, so could Froch. And this stat speaks for itself with GGG. When an opponent can hit back, he will go rounds with…

[QUOTE=DreamFighter;20197437]its not about what we say though, its about what GGG does. and that means crap titlist Lemmy by KO was the height of his abiity so far. Thats equivalent to Billie Joe shutting Lemmy out. Whereas Froch has beaten…

[QUOTE=DreamFighter;20197460]you can assume anything you want, pattern there.[/QUOTE] Kind of hard to do otherwise in a scenario we'll never know the outcome to.

Comment by DreamFighter on 11-19-2019

[QUOTE=AKAcronym;20197456]And based off what I've seen of both fighters, I still think Golovkin could beat Froch. Simple as that, assuming, like I said before, that the fight happened in 2014/2015.[/QUOTE] you can assume anything you want, pattern there.
